I was working a gobbler yesterday, when I got an unexpected answer from below me in a field. Three jakes came in strutting,gobbling and generally making a juvenile nuisance of themselves. I could hear, but not see, another off to my right over the ridge edge. The lead jake came inside my comfort zone and walked in front of my barrel. After looking again for the other bird, I put the jake down where he stood.
I can safely say I really like those Federal ControlFlite #5 turkey loads. I think this is one of the first I've ever knocked over and had only 2 feet sticking up in the air, Stone cold dead!

He didn't go 20lbs and had a 4'' beard. There were plenty others still gobbling. We'll see if another gets to come home with me Sat.
