November 18 dawned as a cold winter morning in Texas. It was just 32 degrees outside, and Trey and his dad Gregg Fuller were hunting together.
It was the peak of the whitetail rut and Trey was waiting for a big buck to make an appearance. Most of the deer had stopped moving by 9:30 that morning when they heard a couple of hens making calls.
Soon after, they heard the distinct sound any hunter knows. Gobble, gobble, gobble.
Adrenaline pumping, the hunters spot a beautiful tom turkey 60 yards ahead of them, along with a couple of hens.
After spending a moment calming himself, Trey pointed his .223 in the right direction and was able to keep his cross hairs from bouncing around to hold his rifle steady. He took his shot and brought home his very first Texas Rio turkey for Thanksgiving.
The mature tom had a 7 3/4-inch beard and 3/4 inch spurs, a highlight of a great Thanksgiving.
