I headed out yesterday to sit in the ground blind I sat up a few days ago. It was a cool and rainy day so I'm glad I had a dry place to hide. Nothing was gobbling and the only thing I had seen this season is a lonely hen. The turkeys seem to go out in the fields when it's raining so I was a hopeful for what the evening had in store. It was getting a little restless after a couple hours so I was scrolling through some stuff on my phone. It had to have been just a few minutes when I look up and there is tom strutting between my decoys! I quickly flip the cameras on and in no time he's flopping! It ended up being the biggest tom I've ever taken.
11.5" Beard 1.5" Spurs and nearly 27 lbs! Pics aren't great because it was raining pretty hard but I did get some decent footage.

they sneak in like that, it will be hard to top that one. My biggest is basicly the same bird from Owen county, I figured it at 4 or 5 years old. It wouldn't come in until the last weekend, though. I have it mounted gobbling from the roost and get lots of compliments, you can tell it is just huge, hoosier trapper did it. Congrats, Chase!!
Thanks guys. If you want to see some entertaining comments you should check out the ones on our frog leg video. Also the Catfish from pond to frying pan video has some "friendly" comments. I don't give much attention to them because if you look at absolutely any video or social media post you find those people who are always negative.
