Early season success
Monday was opening day for spring turkey hunting. Gary Hanna and Kerry Boehle set up their blind early and sat in the elements until about 6 a.m. when Kerry made a couple of calls. They heard a little gobble in the distance. He tried again 10 minutes later and this time he got a loud gobble answer. A few minutes later, a tom strutted in from the timber with another bird behind him. The tom wandered around strutting until he was about 20 yards away. It was time. Gary dropped him at 6:20 a.m. The turkey weighed in at 22 pounds and 2 ounces. It had a nine-inch beard. Nice going guys! You got the season started off right.
