2016 hunt with Devastator

Post by Gobbler » March 22nd, 2016, 2:24 pm

I had a great time hanging out with Devastator this past few days. He flew in on the 18th and we went to Gobblers Lodge to get ready for the spring opener here in Florida. The turkeys didn't disappoint this year as we were able to coax an afternoon Gobbler past our set up on opening day. Tim leveled that bird at around 30 yards with some heavy shot 5's. Man was he happy to get his first Osceola. :thumbup: We had a great hunt and a great time hanging out. We hunted and scouted the next couple days. We hung out and stayed at camp watching March madness and having a cold beer. He flew back this morning so here are a few pictures that I took.

We went back to camp then cleaned bird.

Ate the bird the next night.

The next day we met a nice hen while hunting.

Saw and unusual sight on the drive out.

Tim liked the hen so much he took her home on the flight with him.

So all said and done we had a good hunt.
