Killed this turkey on the opening day of my turkey season, I was using the Primos B-mobile and she-mobile along with another feeding hen decoy. This turkey came out of the woods about a 100 yards away and when he say the strutting jake ( I am using a real fan from a jake a friend shot earlier in the year and I trimmed down an extra beard I had) he came at a run. He caught me a little by surprise and I had to wait till he was in strut and facing off with the decoy before I could get my gun up.

I figure him to be a 3-4 year old. 8 1/2 in beard but some impressive 1 1/2 in spurs that hook like crazy.

Only shortcoming to the hunt was that I was by myself....nobody to celebrate with....and a bear to take pictures of.

Turkey was killed in Western MI, just about half way up the state.


Thanks!
