I am speechless and so grateful for what transpired tonight. Could not have scripted a cooler first for the both of us! My first turkey and with my son to boot!
Just tend your own and live.

Sounds like a great experience, I'd love to hear how it went down if you'd like to share! I also had my first turkey hunting experience and while I didn't get anything, it was a blast!

Lots of birds around this year. I've been haunted by the Jake's this season.  I cant set up on a gobble without a Jake or two showing up :bash: hopefully some butts will get kicked and they will learn to keep their mouths shut :chuckle:

Dan has been my bad luck schlup for 5 trips over 3 seasons and easily 80 miles of boot leather (19 this weekend alone).  Finally got the monkey off his back on sunday! Mature bird and 5 Jake's right into the gun. Mature bird was in the lead with all his minions close behind. Had to pick up and move once but the second set put us where he wanted us to be and came in on a string. Fan'd down to blow our hats off with a thunderous gobble and Dan let him have it! Best part of taking people Turkey hunting is you get to call them in and watch the show, but at the end they get to carry the stinky dead turkey :chuckle:

Proud daddy moment. There was at least one bigger Tom with the group but with a squirmy 4 year old with me, I took the first shot I could on this jake.

I not only use the feathers to fletch arrows and bones to build wingbone calls, I go kill a few gobblers as well.  Got this Oregon tom last Friday.   :IBCOOL:

Well I think I shot the last Rio on SE public.  :P

Pretty slim pickings but lucked out. I normally do NE but was on vacation with the family in Walla Walla/Pendleton.

Talked to a guy who owns a vineyard who said he has about a dozen that hang out by his truck  >:( Of course I wasn't able to hunt them. I even offered to buy a case of wine.....seriously.
