Well, actually it's the second tom I've ever taken, but the first one I got TOTALLY on my own. Hubby took daughter to soccer game in the morning so I could go out an try calling me a turkey. (Hubby has filled his 2 turkey tags for the year). Went up to our lease and was in the woods by 6am, and and was home by 10am. Later that night we feasted on grilled wild turkey.
