One gobbler flew 300 yards from the swamp at 7:10 and the second flew down with a handful of hens about 10 yards from me at 7:15. I had to turn to the right to shoot, but a hen was close to me, so I waited until the gobbler started to walk away. When he did, the hen turned to follow him, I swung slowly to the right and took him at about 30 yards. Time was about 7:20 or so.
I never turkey hunt this particular area, but I have hunted deer there off and on for 20 years. So I know the land layout well. Usually there are turkeys in the area in the fall, but hardly any in the spring. Fresh burns have brought them back.
10.25" beard, 1.5/1.0" spur, and 18.5 lbs. Very nice public land bird to start the season. Second spur had the tip broken and worn down.
