Today was the first day Spenceville opened to the public. Hunted with a buddy and gave him the green light to take the shot if only one came in. This bird really didnt want to come on the ridge we were on, we saw him walk past us at 80 yards while gobbling til we couldnt hear him anymore, 30 min later he gobbled from 60 yards behind us, more soft calling and he stuck his head up to our left and gave Jim a 37 yard shot. 18lbs, just under a 9" beard and 3/4' spurs!!

I hear ya spinner, between youth and opening weekend called in 11 jakes and no big boys, they were all henned up. But yesterday we found a nest with a dozen eggs, so the long beards will be lonely!!

Nice always want to check that place out but figured it would be over hunted. Me and my buddy bagged 2 on opening weekend.
