    Default 14 days of grit and determination on the bird named Dildo

    After 14 hunts Dildo finally has died. This has been one of the most frustrating but fun rides of my turkey hunting career. I have had so many close calls with him and stupid shit has happened and screwed it up. From no shot at 35 yards, to deer coming in and blowing with him at 54, to me setting up right under him before daylight on Sunday before church, I've experienced it all. This morning I just sat back and let nature run its course and did not interfere at all. Every night he roost with a flock of hens and if you call they go the other way. He was the most gobbling turkey I have ever hunted in my life. He was high strung and fun to hunt. You could go on the property anytime of the day and you could get a gobble out of him but he always had his ladies friends. My buddy gave him the name Dildo because he walked around with a stiffer all the time. This morning I just sat in a food plot ccleroy and I had watched him strut in for a hour and half last Friday morning. Two hens pitched down at fly down and I knew I was in the game this morning. About 30 minutes after fly down and constant gobbling he went quit for 10 minutes. I caught him slipping through the woods and he stepped out at 40 yards. He immediately went into strut when he saw the hens. I called for the first time with him at 40, he gobbled, and he got a load of Hevi Shot. He was 20 lbs, 11.5 inch beard and 1 1/8 inch spurs. I'm almost sad the chase for Dildo is over. But hey, at least he got a lot of breeding in and the future for the property looks even better next year!

    I'm the same way. If someone says they have a turkey that has a name, I don't want any part of it. That means he's kicked a many of a hunter's ass

    Nice one!
    She got them eagle feathers; cocaine eyes
    She got the heat to make a dead man rise
    A rose in her hair, a devil may care attitude
    She never said she would stay by my side
    She only wanted to be there for the ride
    A bottle of wine, a coupla lines
    She was there for the night

    Good job man. I hate to report that I am also after a named turkey. I've given him a few days since our last encounter but the heat is about to be on again......

    Hahaha I can't take credit for it. A very good friend of mine who hunted him several times with me named him. I named one several years back that he and I hunted together that he eventually killed. I told him during the hunt a couple weeks ago, you know this bird has reached the status of naming him like I named Asshole (that was the bird's name we hunted several years ago). He immediately without hesitation said Dildo. I asked why Dildo and he said because he walks around with a hard on all the time because he's always has hens and still gobbles his head off.

    congrats man. been there done that. sometimes they will make you wonder how you have ever killed a turkey before, and other times they will make you wonder how they have not all been killed as stupid as they can be.

    Never seen a two year old gobbler named!
    I learned from an old-timer years ago there's only one name for problem turkeys and that is Son of a Bitch!

    Was waiting on this. Good question... He'll probably tell you no even if it was.

    Old dildo is still in the woods taking hens to pound town!
    After 14 days you killed his two-year-old kid brother off the roost it in his location since dildo followed a nesting hen off and found himself in a precarious and unfamiliar the day before!
    Old dildos still lives
