Default Turkey Hunt

My son got his first two turkeys last weekend with one shot. Shot one more the next day. Thankfully he only had one shell in the gun or he would have gotten another!

He did let the old man whack a couple of nice ones too. They were really turned on. Don't get many hunts like that in a lifetime. We will always remember that one. It's been over twelve years since I had last bagged a turkey. We will eat good now!

Wow! Sounds like all of our Missouri birds up and moved East. Congrats on a great experience.

Way to go.

Its been slow turkey hunting up here in Pa. The early March warm up IMO has turned them off. I've been out 3 times so far this season and only heard a few gobbles, and they were way off each time. May hit the woods one more time if I get some time off soon.
