Hunt for most wanted turkey ends with shot to head

HUNTING -- After much scouting and several disappointing close calls, my spring wild turkey hunting season ended this morning at 6:10 a.m.

A head shot.

No photos will be posted.  I don't want to take the chance of offending anyone or inciting violence against hunters. 

It was unarmed, but I'm proud of a job well done. I feel no need to high-five, cheer or pump my fists.

The celebration will be quiet and respectful, enhanced with a garlic lime sauce.

No DNA testing is required. It had a long beard. 

If you need more proof, ask my wife, or show up for dinner to see for yourself. Bring a bottle of wine.
