My brother in law took my middle boy out for youth season over the weekend and scored a nice turkey. It was his very first turkey season. The bird weighed it at 23.5 lbs, double beard(10” and a 6”) and 3/4” spurs. It was weighed in at Presleys. I wish I could have been! So proud of him, we are going to get it mounted in a flight mode some how.

Nothing better than getting a great bird, expecially when a first timer youth gets an amazing bird like that!  Good choice on the mount!

He is soo hooked on turkey hunting now. Him and his uncle stopped at presleys to enter it in the youth turkey contest on there way home. Well he called me before lunch today to see if he could call over to presleys to see who had won,,,,sure enough it was HIM!!! He still has a smile on his face. Now my 10 y.o. wants to go, he even shot the 12ga turkey gun yesterday to see if he still wanted to go,,,,,,now I have to see if maybe I can get a tag for him(and a second tag for his brother) in the daily drawings.

So much for Dad getting to hunt,,,,thats alright I will sit back and just do the calling!!!!!

I’m so proud of him!!!! He got his first deer, turkey and goose this year. He had an awesome hunting season this year.
