After more than one could have been, should have been, and might have been.

Throw in an almost or two.

A vintage J. C. Higgins 16ga. and a nice gobbler finally crossed paths.

I got this at an auction , this past winter. The dial reads .633 at the muzzle.

My hand load of buffered, copper plated no. 6

34 steps into a chisel plowed corn field.

Congratulations!

Nice bird, bowing down to the Power of Purple he is.

Also, found this recipe which is, I'm told, useful for turning wild turkey legs into something edible and good-tasting. https://www.themeateater.com/cook/recipes/trophy-meals-beer-and-citrus-braised-wild-game-carnitas-street-tacos
