Well here's #1,the scale $ucked,said it was 13.8,you'll see that's BS,But here's the first of the year,I'm not even going to show the scale Pic,I carried him back to the truck,He was 20LB's maybe a tad more.





Right spur

Left spur


He may not Qualifie because of not having a good scale,I borrowed a buddies fishing scale and weighed him right away,but he ain't no 13.8,so I'm not even going to put it up there,He wont be no winner any how,just a nice Ca. Tom ;D Off Public land. Every one in the world screwwwed my week-end hunt's up like you would not believe,but I set this boy free on Tuesday after letting them settle down and all the Idiot's go back to there day jobs. It was a good hunt that I thought would be over by 7 am but like most Turkey's they made it harder and it was 8 am till I got them to come in,I was about to make a 60 yard shot,I've done it before with my Browning Fullstrutt Turkey choke,then I got the hens to play ball with me,as the came with in 20 yards he was running so fast that when I hit him at 35 yards he did a header ;D Good luck to all you guy's on your opener.

Thanks,I'm going to have to get a good game scale,Just never had a need for one,Never cared that much,I'm not even sure how much my biggest Dorado or Bill-Fish weight,Darado...About 55LB's,Bill fish was a Sail-Fish about 160+,near Ixtopa Mex. Way down there near Central America,It's considered Central America. Biggest Bone fish about 2 LB's off the Cape of Mex.,Rooster-Fish about 50+ a monster Rooster fish,all released,I have some Pic's but only on film,Not Digital.OH Well.
Heres my favorite Pic of this Turkey....

That is so Funny Bird :D That's what I was thinking after I cleaned him,I have a nice technique where I pull both breast & thighs,legs & feet,Beard and tail out leaving everything else in tact. I thought to my self that theres over 13LB's left??? In Carcase,guts & feathers no problem ;) Glad It ain't just me that had a problem with that scale :(
