Got one Sat. (opening day) morning in SC. I was back home by 8:30. Weirdest turkey I've ever killed. He was obviously a gobbler, red-white-blue head, chasing a jake, gobbling and struting but no beard. Longest, sharpest spurs of any bird I've ever taken. 3" 2oz #5 Remington Premier from a Hastings turkey choke and Benelli M-1 Super 90 laid him down at 30 yards like a sack of potatoes. He was gobbling on the roost before sunrise, flew down and made his way straight to me. He gobbled plenty but it was never an answer to my calling He sure was tender though

Could have shot the jake too since he didn't run off right away but I passed. I've never shot a jake but I'm not above it. I usually get 1-2 mature toms per year and that's enough for me.

I'll try it again one afternoon this week.
