Took Max Berg and his dad Matt (Mouthcallinmatt) on their 1st turkey hunt this morning. Got to our spot a little late, but enough time to get set-up. As we settled in (I was 20 yds behind them), the big boys started going off. The roost tree is at the top of a ridge over looking the meadow we're in. When I started cutting, they went crazy. And the best part was, I didn't hear a single hen. At 6:20 they started flying down...3 longbeards. When they hit the ground (75 yds), they were instantly on the move right at us. At 25 yds., they probably saw Max shaken........, because they started to turn away. At about the same time, BOOM...BOOM. I see one bird down.....Max's 1st gobbler (17.5lbs, 91/2" beard, 3/4" spurs).......Short, but really exciting. Hunted the rest of the day for Matt, close but no cigar. Great day of turkey hunting...... Happy birthday Max............
