Glades Hunters Get Gobbler
Howard Family Gets A Wild Turkey
MOORE HAVEN, FL. -- Matt, Stephen, and Lonnie Howard braved the wind and rain on Saturday to bad a wild turkey. "Matt had videoed the birds a couple of days before and had their pattern figured out," said Lonnie Howard.
Lonnie's father Matt set up a decoy out in the slough and the hunters hid along the tree line. Matt did he "did some sweet calling, they gobbled, and two birds pitched out and sailed all the way across the slough and landed right in front of us. " The bird had a 9 and one-quarter inch beard.
