Our spring season opened up last Sat. I had the opportunity to go south of the Ocala national forest and try my hand at Osceolas this week. Tried to seal the deal on a monster of a bird that must have weighed 20 lbs with spurs that looked like sinker nails and a beard that looked like a paint brush, but no joy. I guess he didn't get that big and old by being stupid. At one point I had 7 hens in the pasture in front of me, one was feeding 10 feet from me. In the end, I got this jake. Gun is a Mossberg 930 with Remington nitro 3" #4's. Next eastern I go for here is going to be with my crossbow.
