My son Jake scored on NH Youth Day

Score: 55.5

Weight 20lbs

Beard length 10.25"

Both spur lengths  .75" & .75"

Benelli SBE II, Vortex Spark II red dot, Primos Jellyhead Choke, Federal Heavyweight 3" #5's.  DRT at 40 yards. I'll see if I can get the video posted.  This tom came in and chased a jake away from the docoys, and another half dozen jakes behind him were having a massive brawl, even after the shot and we were standing there 20 yards away over the dead boss tom, all they could do was beat on each other.

12 gauge TC Encore with Hevishot 6's @ 21 yds

very old Quaker Boy box and Quaker Boy push pin.  Southland Caller Glass

 

Came in gobbling with his buddy directly behind me in tag alders at 2 pm.  why he had to cut the corner of the field and go thru the thick crap to get to me is befuddling.  Go figure. Then they sat 15 yds behind me for @ least 15 minutes spitting, drumming and strutting.  I didn't even try to turn around as it would be to thick and I couldn't move with all the brush next to me.  But boy it was driving me crazy listening to his wings drag on the ground so close.  A lot of crazy thoughts go thru a guys mind - like can I somehow spin and get a shot.  well I stayed sane enough to not try it as it would have been impossible and just kept telling myself they aren't going anywhere just let this thing play out.  Easier said than done though.  and 15 minutes of holding a gun up on your knee starts to wear on a guy.  Finally a hen came out by my DSD decoy and that motivated him to show his face.  I didn't wait any longer.  His twin just stood there for 5 minutes walking around.  Wish it was next week when I have 2 tags.

No measurements on this guy I took about 5 weeks ago in Blue Ridge, Georgia, but I do have the entire hunt on video.
