The Stevens Took Another One
« on: May 12, 2016, 10:54:53 PM »
Called this one in last Saturday for my son. He used the same black powder hand load that I did. Lots of action with this tom. He really performed for us. Luke got to watch him for a full five minutes before he got in close enough to take cleanly with the old scatter gun.

Hi scooby, that's one gorgeous turkey. Your son is very handsome, does he take after you?

Thanks for posting such great photos.

Regards,
Richard

Thanks Richard. He took on my height and build, but fortunately got his mother's looks so he won't have to spend his days scaring other folks with an ugly mug like mine :)

Nice bird! And you both got the turkeys with that neat old timer.

it is really great that people still keep the tradition alive with these old smoak poles.
