Team Struttn Ruttn N Reeln was ready for the opening day of the South Florida spring Osceola season. David Mills greeted his 4 hunters on Friday and everyone was in the south Florida turkey woods before daylight.
After the hunts David Mills told me. “Shane Jeansonne. Tom Parks and I were listening to birds gobble when my son Colten called and said, “Osceola down.” He was guiding Brian Bear. Brian’s bird flew right to the decoys, a fatal mistake.”
“We continued to call when, like a thief, a giant Osceola stepped out to Shane’s Indian Creek choke tube and # 5s. Another Osceola down, a magnificent gobbler with an 11″ beard and 1 1/2″ spurs .”
“I received another call from Colten, a problem. Two gobblers were pecking the dead bird. They would not stop . A great problem to have. Colten suggested we leave our blind and come a hundred yards from his blind and call. We did. Another Osceola down.”
“In 3 hours opening morning of the 2012 Florida turkey season, we had three birds down. Shane’s bird completed his slam. Tom and Brian’s slam is off to a good start.”
“I got another call from our other guide Ronnie Rauh. Another bird down. Mike Walton started his slam.”
“Four hunts, four Osceola gobblers. Thank you LORD.”
All hunted with a shotgun.
