We were fortunate to harvest 2 mature Eastern gobblers in Mississippi this season on camera. That was the good news. The bad news is that the old gobblers we were after got away. One of these gobblers we nicknamed “GodZilla”. We have been trying to get him for 3 years. He just never would commit to our setup; plus, he always had plenty of hens with him.
Here are some trail camera shots of GodZilla last year.
Now my Dad checked the game camera yesterday and BOOM there he was again. The pictures are dark but you can see him. This is a great 5+ year old bird. This one will go on the wall if we can get him next year.
There were a few other birds that we were after on other properties that avoided us. They have nicknames like Big Foot and Big Ole SOB. That’s three named birds on three different properties we will be after next year if they can survive that long. Now that alone will give you something to look forward to next season.
