I shot the first turkey when these two came running. I let out a loud yelp on my Cody glass call and they gobbled and came running. The first on that dropped his fan is the one I shot. The other bird started stomping my decoy. My brother in law crossed 500 yards behind me to get there. He shot the bird next to the decoy. Both birds were within 10' of each other. My decoys fan is tore up.:-}

Heres the 1st .Dirty birdy for this season

Weight: 21#
Beard: 10"
Spurs: 1 1/4"
Gun: 12ga Remington Super Mag / .665 Jellyhead
Ammo: Nitro ammo co 4x5x7Hevi-shot 3.5 2 7/16oz
Taken: 1:00 pm
Distance: 51 lasered yards

Missed this one at 20 yards 20 minutes after flydown, then spooked him again (skylighted myself) at 10:30 Then blowed him up at 1:00 as he was fighting purring another gobbler.

Really liking my new Remington, a shotgun with a grip is the best thing since sliced bread. Not missing the 5" of barrel or 1/2lb of weight off my Benelli either, 23" is getting it done.
