I killed my first turkey about a week after opening season started out here in Virginia where I go to school. i hunt on my friends 500 acre farm which is really awesome. Anyways, we got there early in the morning and saw a flock of about 18 turkeys, so we let the dog loose on them so they would scatter all over. I started calling about an hour later with a boss hen box call, and an hour after sitting in the woods a nice looking jake came over the little hill in front of me, and when he got like 20 to 25 yards from me I took him out with a head shot. I was really excited. He came out to be 13 pounds and 10 pounds dressed. Not bad for a beginner. And the sandwiches I make with his meat are awesome.
