Downed this boy at 9am. Approx 1" spurs and a 9" beard. Could have been the best gobbling day I have seen in my 20 years turkey hunting.

I am not a Michigan fan at all! However, that is my lucky hunting shirt. Just about everytime I wear that shirt I usually take something home or come close.for example yesterday I didn't have it on and I did not get a bird, didn't even come close. Today I had it on and look what happened. I'll wear anything if it makes the gobblers come running :smiley_clap:

Nice bird Congrats.

I don't know that I could have stayed out in the weather we had here this morning so I applaud your ability to stick it out and turn some bad weather into a good day in the field.

Nice bird on a crappy day for hunting. What is the strory behind this bird? Where are you hunting and was he alone?

I was hunting in SW Ohio on private land. In fact, we just got permission to hunt the property (only 54 acres) last week (we hunt some other farms in the general area). I saw birds in it last night late and set up this morning. Had this bird come in alone.

Congrats!! Tough weather to be hunting in today, especially in SW Ohio. I was in Cinci today and there was flooding everywhere.
