Hens beginning to Sit

Finally, the hens are beginning to sit. Hopefully the gobblers will get a little more workable over the next week. Over the first week of the season, they've been hanging out with the hens and won't even look at a decoy. Good luck.

Ethan's Turkey Hunt 2010

Ethan's Easter Sunday afternoon youth hunt was a lot of fun. We had no luck with gobblers avoiding us in both youth hunt morning sessions. This afternoon, my brother spotted these turkeys out and about. We crawled about 200 yards to the blind. The video is poor because I couldn't find my tripod today before I left and I have no idea how to edit. Ethan misses this bird the first time, then you hear a click as he didn't jack the next shell in all the way. I barely got the camera back on the bird when he blasted him on try #3! The bird had 9 1/4 inch beard and weighed 22 lbs. It's seldom that you get to see four mature gobblers in the same field all strutting. One of these days, I'm going to learn how to video. Fun day. Warning: My dad uses a few expletives you may not want your child to hear.

Youth Turkey Ends Today

Youth Turkey season ended this evening. The regular turkey season is just two weeks away. My boy scored on a 9 1/4 inch-22 lb bird tonight. I'll have horrible quality video later.
