2017 Spring Turkey

Postby UPSMAN » Fri Mar 17, 2017 8:27 pm

Florida season opens tomorrow in Central Florida. Going to take my son so he can hopefully kill his 2nd turkey. We've got a couple of good birds targeted. There is a nice boss Tom that I let walk on the last day of last years season. I'm counting on him to challenge my big B-mobile decoy. Hope to have a couple of good pictures to post soon.
