1st Gobbler of 2019
#1
Here in SoCal Spring Turkey season opened for hunting clubs on March 2nd. This morning I took my biggest California bird to date. I will update this post later with all of the official measurements. He's got one of the cooleset Tailfans for a Rio that I've ever seen. He has one row of feathers taller than the front row.  

I called this bird with a Warbird Hellrazor diaphram. It was difficult to get him to commit but once he did, he was all in. Shot was about 20 yards. Shotgun was Tristar Viper, G2 with Holosun optic. The shotshell was Hevi-shot Magnum Blend.

#Updated to include numbers.
23.2 lbs without the tail.
10.5" beard
1.25" spurs.

Great way to kick off the season.
