A dozen guys had 16 Oklahoma gobblers in hand by the time we closed down camp at Croton Creek Ranch.

Several had trophy spurs to rival the best any of us ever kill.

Most of us let jakes walk with the promise of sharp-spurred longbeards nearby, though one shortbeard double was taken by a camp attendee, and one of those young gobblers had a double beard. It was that kind of hunt!

I have four turkey states to go after returning from Oklahoma. Stay tuned here at the Strut Zone for my hunts in Vermont, Maine, New Hampshire and New York. Somewhere in there I’ll make good on losing a Super Bowl bet

In the meantime, here’s more video from windy and wild Oklahoma turkey country on my final day of the hunt:
