I was on a successful youth Turkey hunt with my son last weekend, this is my 4th successful youth hunt, got to have a lot of patience.  I like to watch the kids shoot make sure the gun is safe then see if they are shaking lol. He was!  We ate the bird for supper that night, it was delicious.

Congrats cutt!  Nothing better then being part of a successful youth hunt!!
Daughter got her first Turkey on Saturday, had them rooosted all around us and thundering away until fly down!  Pretty exciting hunt, we had over 20 birds fly down right out in front of us with at least 10 Toms (not sure exactly how many as I was busy getting daughter into position and picking out and trying to point out the Toms to her, it was a bit chaotic and awesome all at once lol).  They were back and forth, in and out of range for about 10 minutes before she got settled on one and made the shot.  She was pretty nervous and I’d be lying to say I wasn’t a bit nervous for her…  3rd yr trying to get her on one so was nice to finally be able to put it all together.  She’s already picked out the spot in bedroom for her fan once done smile
Next up is Wife next week followed by younger daughter following week (first Turkey hunt)!
