Two weeks ago I took a break from arrow building and salmon fishing long enough to get out and hunt.  A short morning hunt east of Mt Hood produced this tom.   :)

Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.

My Dad and I chased turkey from May 2nd to the 5th. We got up every morning at 0330 and went to bed at 2200 each night with some good naps in between. My Dad only has one good sit a day in him so we focus on trying to get one off the roost while he was fresh. We hunted every evening just up the road from camp on public land. I managed to score turkey number one on the 3rd, turkey number two on the 4th, and my Dad shot his first ever spring tom on the morning of the 5th! We broke camp and headed home on the 5th which was about as long as my Dad was able to last with me riding him hard to get a turkey.

First turkey was 16.11 lbs with and 8 inch beard and just under 3/4 spurs.
Second was 19.30 lbs, 8 inch beard and just under 1 inch spurs.
My Dad shot a 20.17 lb turkey, with an 8 1/2 inch beard and just under 1 inch spurs.

The last few trips with my Dad have been rough on him and each one could have been his last. I left him home last year under Doctors orders due to his health. He managed to lose over 20 lbs and check all the other boxes to make the long drive and he hunted as hard as he could, including sitting on the ground in the cold for over an hour the last morning so his chair wouldn't create a wide profile and give away his position. We've been gunning to get him a big tom for over a decade and he's already talking about the fall so he can notch his second tag. We had a great time and got to chat with some other hunters while we were scooting around. Good Luck to everyone!

@TheStovePipeKid

That is awesome!  Sounds like a great trip with your dad and one that you will always look back on fondly!  Making memories!!

I'm headed over Monday for my hunt.  I have a full week and hope I can at least find some birds to be around.  We had a pretty tough youth season and really didn't get on any birds to even be able to hunt.

Did a quick bonsai trip up north Saturday afternoon to get my brother his first Tom. After a swing and a miss on a bird I called in early just off the roost my brother was able to get this tom 30 minutes before we had to head towards home.
