Lily struck Gold this morn!

Post by Shooter » April 23rd, 2016, 8:15 pm

As many of you know or may not know, she turned over the Nellie to me after it clicked on her with some Wood Ducks.
I found her a super light youth pump 20. She loves it. Gophert just happen to have a choke that fit it. Two weeks ago was her first experience with a Gobbler with it.
Bird came in fully blowed up, through big open hardwoods. By the time he was standing 25yds in front of her, she was pretty shaken up.
Sure enough, she missed. Killed the heck out of a 4" tree though! :mrgreen:
This morn was redemption. She was nervous again, then again, who isn't when you got one gobbling in front of you. She made a good shot with one of her light weight, "Leah Loads". 1 1/4oz of TSS 9s.
Her biggest bird yet at 21 Lbs, 11" beard, and inch spurs. She is really liking the powerlines lately! :lol: :lol:
