Took my 6 year old son out for his first hunt. Even with him not being able to sit still we were able to get one bird down!
I think he is hooked!

I'll post pics later but my 11 yr old son and I doubled up, 2 toms yesterday at noon. They walked up together at 33 yards over a knoll.  I was waiting and waiting for my son to shoot and I finally got impatient as they were getting leary..  i shot then my son shot just after me...pretty special day.Thanks to my buddy for his expertise calling!

Finally found a bird willing to work.

Got my first and second ever turkeys this year! How blessing it truly was. Good friends took me out and it only took 3 days to fill both tags. A addiction has now started  :chuckle: I got experience mountain bird hunting and farm field hunting. So I got a taste of both hunting styles!

Put together a quick video of the footage from my May 1st bird. Jump to 3:20 if you want to skip all the waiting and watching the birds come in and mill around. Clipped the camera on my vest last second so my arm blocks a lot of the action. Just happy to have the footage at all, filming was not the main priority!

Well we were finally able to get our daughter out for a hunt this weekend because it's been hectic between school, sports and work. My wife also decided to mentor 4 other new women hunters this year on turkey hunts, which took up several weekends. At 10 years old she was cool calm and collected rolling this guy at 22 yards. This is her first harvest and I'm so proud of my ladies for getting it done this morning.

Great birds everyone!
