Well my I-12 performed flawlessly today. It was 8:00 am this morning on the dot and after an hour of battling with a flock of hens, I was able to call them in and they brought a bruiser of an Eastern with them. Shot was 47 paces with 3" federal premium #5 with flight control wad. Gobbler stats=22lb, 11 1//4" beard, 1 5/8" and 1 7/8" spurs. Property hadn't been turkey hunted in at least 10 years and I'm guessing this bird had to be at least 4 years if not 5 years old. This was one of my most exciting turkey hunts as the lead hen was within 10 yards of me for at least 15 minutes before the gobbler showed up (he came in completely silent and never heard a gobble all morning). The cool thing is that I passed on 2 jakes that came in with the lead hen and 6 other hens. It goes to show, don't ever shoot the first one that comes in unless you are sure it's a mature bird. Pics to come soon as I need to find my adapter for camera.
