My sons first bird. He killed it using his Mossberg .410 with 3” Federal Premium TSS #9’s. The bird was 37 yards when he shot it. Maybe he’s that good or just lucky? I don’t know. But we all need a little luck when we are hunting. The hunt was less than an hour. The birds gobbled good on the roost, but hushed when they hit the ground. We had two Longbeards and three hens come in to us. My boy was super nervous when they came in to range. I ranged them at 28 yards, but his nerves were making him doubt. The birds started going back in the direction they came from. I think the decoys were causing them too. I calmed him down and told him to breath. I honestly thought he had waited to late. He said he was on the bird, I said squeeze the trigger and to my surprise the bird dropped and started to flop. My son was beyond excited. My friend was with us doing the calling so I could concentrate on helping my son. He was also able to film the hunt. This was truly a hunt of a lifetime and my favorite hunt at that. I tried to explain to him that it doesn’t really ever happen like this, so don’t expect it next time. The bird had a 9” beard and 3/4” spurs.
