I had a good yr even though just 2 longbeards hit the ground. I didnt get to hunt much but I managed to kill 2 with my 12 ga iron mounted Joe Schell built flintlock that I call Achilles. The shots were close an the gun an load did its job flawlessly. One of the birds only had one spur. I should have had 4 but a couple of them were them sneaky silent come in from behind you evil devil bred toms that we all love an adore. Im getting old an cant hear them like I used too an both these busted me. Oh well thats turkey hunting. I hope you guys that are still getting to hunt has some great hunts

Any turkey taken with a flintlock arm is a prize , and...they sure are tasty !
I've had good luck with my New England fowling gun [ 10 bore] and we enjoyed left overs along with new roasted potatoes for supper last night .
Yummy !!!
