Got a turkey :)

Opening day of Wisconsin turkey season today...had some real close encounters all day. Right off of the roost this morning I had two nice toms come in to about 45 yards but I just didn't take the shot for some reason. Later in the day I snuck up on some turkeys but they were in a thick spot when one stuck his head up, took the shot and he flew away. Finally at about noon I saw 3 toms in my friends field. I went and sat in the woods below the field and called them in to about 30 yards. This time when I shot he hit the ground. The 20 gauge did the job that's for sure. This one was 22lbs, 10 inch beard with 7/8" spurs.
