Me and my little girl, 10 y/o, went hunting Sat. morning. We heard three birds gobbling on the roost. I was told that there was a particular box stand on a gas line on our lease where a gobbler had been seen struting in the late morning. So I decided we should go get in the stand and see what happened. Well, my little girl went right to sleep. I didnt want to disturb her since all the gobbing had ceased, so we just set there. At about 0835 a turkey gobbled close to our position. I woke her up and got her ready. I yelped and the turkey answered right back. It took him about ten minutes to make his way out, but he didnt come out where I thought he would. He came out right in front of the stand. Oh, by the way this is almost and ground blind, its only about 2 feet off the ground. I had a hen and jake decoy set out. The jake was 9 steps from the stand. The gobbler walked right past the hen and right up to the jake. I guess he was fixin to wope some tail. Anyway my little girl shot and down he went. He weighed 20 pounds, 9 3/4 inch beard, 1 inch spurs. I thought a pretty nice bird for a first time hunter. My heart was pounding so hard I was shaking so badly I couldn't hardly get out of the stand. What a morning!
