Custom Carved Turkey Decoy in the field!
« on: April 21, 2012, 01:51:37 PM »
 :rockon:  WHOA BABY!  Today was the first morning in the field for my custom carved turkey decoy!  ( Named 2.0 )

What a great hunt we had! 

The live gobbler pictures are grainy, because they were shot through the mesh on the blind.  My boy got the puffy one.

These two gobblers are both my wife and my youngest boy's second birds. 

My wife was on the other side of the farm on her first successful solo hunt on her own, so the other gobbler that committed to 2.0 is still running around out there!

The two gobblers coming into my boy's setup fought before getting into us.  They put on quite the show!  My wife had a great show with her bird too. 

On top of using the decoy, my son's bird went down to one of my custom aluminum turkey calls, and my wife's went down to one of my ceramic calls!

Field proven! :punk: You are custom all the way now! That must have been a good feeling. Awesome job! It was cool to be able to see the decoy forming and then see the success with it your first time! ~Andre

I went ahead and defended her honor against this jake and his buddies this morning too.  I'm not normally a jake killer, but in the interest of catfishing, I decided when the season began, to let it rip on any male bird that got in range.   :2up:
