I’ve been checking out all our Turkey hunting spots during the past few weeks to get ready for the special Youth Day for Spring Gobbler on Saturday April 23. We found a good spot near some grape vines where we could set up our decoys and also see a clear view all around us.
I really wanted to get a Gobbler with my new 20 Gauge Mossberg 505 Shotgun. I took my first practice shot with it last week and I’m pretty sure I can get a turkey if we call one in. We had a really exciting morning hunt because we heard about 5 different big birds that were gobbling over and over and saw two long beards and a couple of hens, too. Check out our video below!
My cousin, Jared Csordas, lives in Maryland and on April 26, 2016, he shot this nice Gobbler. He used a slate call and the Gobbler weighed 20 pounds and had a 9.5 inch beard.
Jared was really excited about his hunt and I will be too, when I get my gobbler. Jared used a 12 gauge Mossberg 535 to shoot the bird at about 30 yards. Good shooting Jared!
