I shot this eastern turkey in May of 2009 on public land. After setting up my Lynch decoys and settling in next to a tree, I made a few soft yelps about 15 minutes apart with my box call. All of a sudden, I heard this gobbler directly behind me and he was within 30 yards! I had to wheel and deal 180 degrees with my shotgun to harvest him. The bird had 1˝ inch spurs, an 11 inch beard and weighed over 23 pounds. It was an exhilaratingly quick and successful hunt!
