Meg Douglass, 4/16/17
#282 Pic of the Week 4/16/17 is Meg Douglass with her very first turkey! Meg's friend Skylar let her borrow his 20 gauge shotgun and helped her to roost the tom. At 5:30 the next morning they were sitting on the edge of the field and before they could get set up, the tom flew down! Meg slowly raised her gun and rested it on her knee. Having all the calls still in the backpack, Skylar gave a couple of soft calls with his mouth. When the bird was close enough Meg shot and then raced to her prize, a handsome 18lb.13oz tom with a 11&1/4 inch beard and 3/4 in. spurs. Congratulations on a great first bird!
