    This isn’t Facebook or Instagram bro, we’re all just as happy for you as you are, regardless of the size or age. It’s legal and tripped your literal and figurative triggers. Congrats!! 👊

    Awesome bird! I dropped a jake this year because it was the first bird I've called in. I'm not good at calling and always relied on decoys. The true trophy is the thrill of the hunt and the memories behind it. Congrats again!
