J. D. Huges, 88 years old, killed this turkey on opening morning at Baytree Hunting Club in Chipola, Louisiana. He killed it by himself and in his slippers, I might add! It weighed 19 pounds and had a 9-3/4 inch beard. It was a great thing to see because he loves to turkey hunt but hasn't been able to get in the woods in awhile because of his health.
My congrats to J. D. and hope I'm hunting well into my eighties! Way to go!
