“Fast walkin’ to the dirty talkin,” was how Joey Livesay, of Ballground, described the killing of his third tom of the season last May in Emanuel County.

James Newton, of Guyton, ended his turkey season in a hurry last March 25 in Effingham County. He killed these three jellyheads with a single shot.
