After going out for the past three weeks I finally connected with a great tom! I executed two prior stalks that led me to jakes. I saw my tom in full strut courting a couple of ladies. It took me over 30 minutes to sneak over and get into a good shooting position. I harvested a Merriam/ Eastern cross with a 9 inch beard and 1" spurs. He weighed in at 20lbs. I can't figure out how to get the picture small enough to post on here. If you would like to see a pic, just shoot me an email. Can't wait to mount him up! Happy Huntress, -Jeanette P.S. He was DELICIOUS!!!!
