...4:30 next morning we left the house for a short walk out behind the house. While setting up we heard the first gobble,” John Dykstra said. “I made a few calls to let the birds know where the ‘hen’ was and soon it sounded like there were at least three birds gobbling in response. They weren’t in any hurry, but we could tell they were working closer.” Any turkey hunter will tell you that when calls are answered by a gobbling tom, the excitement is palpable. And Cole was finding that out, first hand. “Eventually a pair of jakes made their way into view and worked their way closer to us and our decoys. At about 25 yards they were getting suspicious and I told him to take one if he could see it well,” John Dykstra said. “The little 20 gauge pump boomed once and only one bird flew away.” That’s when things got really interesting. Cole’s first career turkey was special...
