    <P style="MARGIN: 0px">Following a disappointing morning yesterday, DeWayne called me this morning to let me know that he finished his season with a mature gobbler.&nbsp; Yesterday morning we hit the woods and I was able to call a pair of gobblers into gunning range.&nbsp; The lead bird was no less than ten feet away when DeWayne raised his gun.&nbsp; He pulled up a tad to fast and the bird spooked.&nbsp; He turned and ran right into the second gobbler.&nbsp; Needless to say, DeWayne was upset.</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">This morning Tom Marsillo (turkey hunting expert) went out with DeWayne.&nbsp; He called two right into DeWayne's lap, and he was able to harvest his first mature gobbler.&nbsp; He now has a Jake and a gobbler in his first year of turkey hunting.&nbsp; I forgot to ask him if Tom was also filming the hunt.&nbsp; I am sure we will see a photo later today.</P>

    <P style="MARGIN: 0px">Howman, go ahead and spin the dial.&nbsp; I'd be happy to go out and call and film or whatever!&nbsp; I had a blast, and big kudos and thanks go out to "Turkey Tom" Marsillo.&nbsp; His expert calling had two big gobblers come in shoulder to shoulder this morning.&nbsp; The only unfortunate part is from the angle Tom was filming from,&nbsp;the terrain wasn't quite as open as it was for me.&nbsp; You got to see the birds coming, but not quite out in the open like I&nbsp;saw them.&nbsp; In addition to what John has taught me, I've learned a tremendous amount having hunted with Tom twice this season.&nbsp; Many thanks to both of my turkey mentors.&nbsp; </P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P>

    <P style="MARGIN: 0px">Hey Bo,</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">We snuck in the dark and painted a big "X" on the ground so the turkeys would know where to go...</P>

    <P style="MARGIN: 0px">Bo:</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">Tommy called those birds across two housing developments, a schoolyard, two sets of train tracks, a major state highway, a river and three creeks.&nbsp; They could have set up near the roost but opted for a challenge.</P>

    <P>Day-Ron,</P> <P>Unfortunately Tommy didn't have a gun with him.&nbsp; He definitely could have shot the other gobbler.&nbsp; It hung around for a few minutes looking like he wanted to thrash the one I had taken.&nbsp; The footage Tommy shot wasn't as good as it could have been.&nbsp; I didn't realize from his angle he couldn't see the birds as clearly.&nbsp; If I had let them walk about 3 more yards they would have been in the open from the camera angle.&nbsp; Oh well...we learned some things for the next time.</P>
