    On March 10th I had 2 mini-strokes and my whole right side went numb,now while I was lying in the hospital bed in Nashville I was wondering if I would even get to turkey hunt this year. I still have some issues with my right arm but,I did get to hunt and tagged out this morning...........So I feel blessed to have recovered enough to be out there.

    Took my first turkey the first day and finished up this morning. Had 3 toms come out of the bottoms ,after some soft calling and they spotted the hen decoy I had flat on the ground with a jake decoy over top of her and they couldn't stand it. As Will Primos calls it they started doing the mean walk heading straight to the decoys. So to keep my decoys from harms way when they got to 35 yds. I let him have it.

    The first picture is of my opening day turkey and the second one is today ! Turkey 2013 003.jpg Turkey 2013 023.jpg

  9. First, congratulations on your continued recovery. And second, congrats on some fine birds.
    I wouldn't know what to do if I could not go turkey hunting- it is literally like Christmas to a little kid for me!
