#1 REASON FOR THIS SUCCESSFUL HUNT: Getting where he wanted to come. there was a ditch between me and him when i sat down originally, he gobbled up and down ditch, finally let him get down ditch 150 yards and crossed ditch and called him back up.

P.S. It was my wedding day. It was a great memory I will cherish forever being able to tell my kids one day I shot a turkey on my wedding day and waded a ditch to kill him.

#1 REASON FOR THIS SUCCESSFUL HUNT: Headed away through the swamp after fly down so I made the decision to circle and get ahead of them. Made it to my spot and called and they responded and worked right in to me. Was 2 toms together but first one had short beard and I could see the second one was better so I let the first one get to within 10 yds and took the better one at 35 yds. He flopped in the swamp trying to do the back stroke for a few seconds before giving up:)
