Hello all! And good luck
« on: January 10, 2008, 11:49:59 PM »
Hi, Im new to this site, but am involved in other sites like BigGameHunting, and BlacktailCountry. I recognize several people from other sites like BillyTheKidRock :hello: . I decided to have my first post in the Turkey forums, because for me it is the closest hunting season i have coming up, and im ready for it.  I have been hunting turkeys in Washington since i was 10 which was 6 years ago, this will be my 7th season. I have been fortune enough to harvest at least 1 turkey every season, with doubles the past 3 years. I Have yet to get my single season slam, (rio, merrium, and a Eastern) in 1 year...I live just south or Olympia Washington, where i have managed to find a couple ole gobblers :tung:... Just thought i would say hi, and start getting pumped for the upcoming season!. Ill be posting some scouting pics in the next couple of months, in between my baseball Games!( highschool).. here are a couple from my past years.(sorry for poor quality, but it was a disposable, and was early most of the time)

Hmm, Pomoroy, WA i believe this was '04 youth


This is My first bird, I rio with a 9" beard.  near keller ferry, Wa


This is collage  there is a bird from Colville in '06, a bird from Keller ferry in '05, My 2nd deer in '03 a cold morning pheasant, and The best picture would be my Uncle,and cousins who I enjoy all my hunting seasons with, they are my true family.



Thank You all and good luck this spring!

Thank you for the reply's. I'll be around a lot more, i went duck hunting this weekend, near my house, saw some fresh turkey sign, and almost had to change my pants when i herd a gobble. lol, anyways, I am no Pro, I have just done my research and put my time in, not to mention some dumb luck, which is about 90% of it! ;) I have much to learn ahead of me and hope i can enjoy every minute of it in the outdoors, with my family, whether or not i even shoot at a game animal. Good luck to all this season.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

Yea that second picture is right out of Pomoroy, Right up the Tucannon valley, on public land. I had to reread my post, I have only doubled the past 2 years, because I have killed 8 turkeys in Wa, and 6 of them were public land birds, and 2 on private land.
