I really like this photo of John Roberson and his son Boone from Mississippi posing with their recent Washington birds.

James from Alabama hunted another state last year, he was put in a stand before daylight and picked up after dark each day for 5 days, he never saw a bear. On the first day of James Idaho hunt two bear were passed in the morning, after lunch and a leisurely mid-day break, James nailed this young boar in the evening of the first day hunting with guide Gilbert, we’ll done gentlemen!

Dave from Pennsylvania got two Washington birds for his slam about an hour apart this evening with guide Zach on the last day of his hunt. Dave had passed birds a couple times because he wanted close for sure shots, it was important to him that he didn’t wound any birds, I really respect and appreciate that! Great job Dave!

Do you keep a running camp count on turkeys? It looks like you had a good season.

Yes, my wife keeps track of the total number and where every bird was killed, also how many misses. Two years ago was our most birds taken, this year will probably be about our 6th to 8th place for total birds, part of that is due to quite a few of the hunters only wanting one bird. This year we did have had the highest percentage of adult birds ever. The hunters were very selective, only three jakes were taken.
