Nice cache superstrutter. Where in Texas were you? I took my first turkey on the Kenedy Ranch (next to King Ranch) in the early 90's. The father-in-law leased a portion. Was my first hunt for anything. Took the jake, a doe & a hog.

Zim, I killed the first bird in Fashing, the second bird in Three Rivers, and the third between Goliad and Runge. All places are southeast of San Antonio. There weren't that many birds this year. I was really expecting to see a lot of 2 yr. old birds because of the good hatch a couple years ago, but I didn't. All three birds were older, probably 3 and 4 yr. olds.

I'm not sure if it counts or not on our team totals, but "Little bitty Brasco" jelly-headed her first bird ever this morning!
I am still grinning and she won't stop retelling the story

She really conducted herself like a veteran! I watched her eyes bug out when the big old Tom started strutting her way, then I saw her close her eyes for a moment, take a long deep breath, and relax, and get ready for the shot!

Nice job Donnie. Congrats on her first bird. She looks excited. I imagine you were just as excited. Now go get one for yourself. I will taking my BIL out soon to try and get his first bird. I guided a guy while in Texas this past weekend in between my hunts and got him his first gobbler.

Anyone else hunting now? Let's hear some updates. I went to my property Wednesday after work to get Eastern # 2 but to no avail. It was pretty windy and hard to hear anything. Heard nor saw a turkey. Going back tomorrow. Looks like it should be a good day.

Here's a couple pictures from the farm just south of my house.
Maybe DTC Jr and I can tag a couple of these boys.
