My wife and I had really been looking forward to opening weekend of the MO Spring Turkey Season. I was planning on filming the hunt as my wife looked to harvest her first turkey. Once we arrived at our hunting spot on the farm, the sun was up over the horizon. We grabbed all of our gear and started walking down a well known strutting zone on a logging road. We had walked about 100 yards and heard two gobblers in the distance. I told my wife, Faith, we needed to set up the blind right where we were. In a rush, I set up the Ameristep blind and decoys. There were consistent turkeys gobbling throughout the timber. It sounded like a mature tom and a jake. Once we were settled in the blind with the video camera rolling, I started calling with Commando's Tripple Threat mouth call. As I was calling the tom answered back. I knew this was going to happen fast. About 10 minutes passed when Faith spotted the old tom. I grabbed the Commando Combo Pot call and called with it for three sessions and then alternated the combo call and tripple threat call. The turkey really responded to my calls, strutting and drumming about 100 yards from our blind and the decoys. The show the mature tom put on was quite impressive. Once he got within 30 yards, I told my wife to get ready. Then I let out a kackle from the Triple Threat call. While in full strut, the turkey let out a gobble, and a blast came from the Remington 870 and down he went. Faith had made a great shot using TruGlo's rifle sights and Bone Collector choke tube. I myself was very excited because this was her first turkey and it was my first time to film a hunt for her.
