I agree with the Hitman about the difficulty of handgunning a turkey. You should be proud! I am also glad you chose to use the 7.62 and got a one bullet kill. Shot placement on turkeys is tricky. It appears you got it right!

Congratulations. You could also build you a "Beard-Board" Just to hang beards on for showing off. I am expecting more in the future you see?

All I did was get skunked this year. I will get there though.

Thanks guys.

cherokeetracker- I like the sounds of a beard board, never heard of one before this. I did a quick on line search and saw some nice ideas too. Thanks
