One Slick Tom!
Turkey season in South Georgia starts on March 24th this year, and this is the small food plot that I hope to be chasing this turkey in on opening morning. I'm not sure if this is "THE" turkey my Dad and I have been after for the past three years, but if it is, he is a slick one!
For the past three seasons, Big John and I have been chasing an old Tom that calls this area home. He will roost in a number of different trees and fly down in every direction possible, but he is always in the area. The problem is getting to his area undetected. We have tried early morning set ups and afternoon set ups. Nothing has worked. We have come close a few times, but he keeps giving us the slip.
For that reason, this turkey has become my number one goal for the season! The only problem with that is that he is also at the top of Big John's list so I may never get my chance. Either way, I want this turkey frying in some 350 degree peanut oil before the 2012 season ends!
Wish us luck!!
