    I'm not new to turkey hunting but I wouldn't quite call myself more than an amateur for turkey hunting. However, while hunting geese and duck I found a spot with a lot of Turkeys, so I figured I would give it a go this spring. It will be shotgun unless I cant get one during the season I choose...

    My dad has an extra turkey that he wants to get rid of. He went unclaimed before Thanksgiving and wants to be somebody's Christmas dinner. It's a broad breasted turkey that probably weighs between 30-40 lbs and he wants $1.25/lb. Just send me a pm and we can work out the details.

    I scored my first turkey this morning and it was a great hunt. I learned from Knobbers last year that if the turkey won't come to you, go to him. My wife and I set up this morning where we had seen a tom fly down out of his roost yesterday morning. Well, he roosted a little further...
