Default Good day in PA - my first turkey ever!!!!!!!!

Ok here is the story. Adam and I took off all week to turkey hunt here in PA. We scouted hard this year. Adam took a beauty yesterday and finally this morning I connected. Not the first shot but the second. I totally blew the first shot. He just stood there after I shot the first time. So I had a second chance at him (I did not know that my body could react that fast after a first shot) Well the second shot I got him good! He went right down! I am so happy I am still in shock and amazement........ I want to thank Adam for being there with me every moment. Well here are some pics Good luck to everyone! I have to say it was alot of fun!!

No problem... it's just kinda odd that the pictures of your bird are much smaller than Bulls....
