Many hunters go a lifetime without "bagging the big one," be it deer ... or turkey.

Peter Curtis, a fifth-grader at John F. Kennedy Elementary School got his shot of a lifetime last week, and took down a 27-pound tom turkey with an 11-inch beard and 1.25-inch spurs.

Peter was hunting on family property south of Hastings with his father, Paul Curtis.

Peter took one shot with his 20 gauge shotgun, his father said.
