It’s tough to beat a kid’s first turkey, but when that bird happens to be a unique piebald, well that’s a story for the Strut Zone Blog.
Check it out:
Joseph Thorson, 12, sent us this photo and writeup after he scored on a white bird during the New Jersey Youth season. The gobbler weighed 16 pounds, had a 7.5-inch beard, and 1-inch spurs. But most notably, it’s white.
Here’s Joseph’s story in his own words…
“When my dad and I got there the turkeys were gobbling all around us. So we got in our spot and started to call them in… The turkeys would gobble for a while and then they would stop. They stopped for about a half an hour. We kept calling for them, but we got no answer.
