    I took my 12 yro nephew out for the Kansas youth season on Sat. We had an awesome hunt. After getting a good look at a gobbler that came in behind us we ended up going to another spot. Around 11 I hear a bird shock gobble at a Heron. I crank on the box call and the guy fires right back. Next gobble was closer, so I have the boy get the gun ready. More gobbles even closer and our hearts are pumping. I sees him about 50 yards out and throw a few mouth call yelps over my shoulder and he moves to where I want. A few moments later he steps out behind a log and before I know it the boy zeros in on him and drops him in his tracks. I grabbed him in a bear hug and whopped it up. This was a true trophy gobbler. We took him to the feed store and weighed him on the scale. 25 1/4 pounds:tu nearly 10 inch beard and just over inch spurs. My season has not even started yet but its been a sucess so far.
