Birds were silent.   This is my kids last youth hunt.  He has gotten a bird the last 4 years, but not yet.   We got into birds.  Clean miss.  Buck (tom) fever.  He's pretty PO'd

Got this guy today. Westside.
There are hundreds of millions of gun owners in this country, and not one of them will have an accident today. The only misuse of guns comes in environments where there are drugs, alcohol, bad parents, and undisciplined children. Period.

That is one sweet bird. Looks like it's crossed with a bronze breasted? Crazy coloring! How much did that thing weight?

Yeah it is a sweet bird. I was blown away with the colors on him. I am trying to it out. Only thing I can come up with is a Rio Merriam cross. Weighed about 18.5

Lil Gringo's first turkey.  Was able to watch him come in from 300 yards, flew across draw and landed 30 yards from decoy.....and strutted right in.
