    First day of the season here in mass.
    Setup in blind with my new Elite Impulse 31
    I put the decoys out and did a little calling.
    I had one gobbler answer.
    Next thing you know here are 3 jakes and a gobbler behind them.
    The gobbler was a little hesitant to cross the shooting lane. He finally stuck his neck out at about 17 yards, I shot for the neck and almost severed it clean off with a rage hypodermic.
    Nice bird, 22lbs 3/4 “ spurs and 9.5 “ beard.
    Tomorrow I will see if I can get one of the jakes.

    #2 turkey down with the bow this morning.
    I had that group of jakes hanging around again and put a rage through the body on this one. 14 lbs of tender meat.
    Sorry about the picture, took it when I got home. Turkey season is over for me.

    Bruce, I was lucky in the fact that I got to these birds before they got to the hens.
    Each day I was done between 7-7:30.
