My friend Donion don't know this,but when he ask me to come up for a few days and turkey hunt I was smiling from ear to ear,I was so excited. I was able to kill what I feel is the bird of a lifetime. To me this is a trophy bird. 24lbs,1 1/8 inch spurs and he had a 10 1/2 inch double beard. Both beards the same length. I was also able to make a shot on this bird that I would normally question,but after last year I was afraid to hesitate when I saw GT had his gun up,lol.As soon as I had a clear shot I fired and it was gobbler down.I may be biased towards the spursuader,but when GT works that call its like a love song to those lovesick gobblers.I found myself just watching in disbelief at the sounds he could make with that call.The spursuader is a great call,but GT is really good at turkey calling.I walked with Donion and GT for what seemed like 25 miles,lol,but I know it wasnt that far,Don was great at putting us on the turkey. It was worth every step to get this great bird.My bird was pretty heavy and these guys took turns carrying my bird out for me. I am so thankful for these guys including me on this adventure.I sure hope to be invited back again,but if not,this is still a turkey season I will never forget.
