Turkey Hunting Whether it's spring or fall doesn't matter to this bunch. Great tips on calling, bustin flocks, using blinds and more.

Default My son's first turkey

Proud dad here for sure. My oldest son got his first tom this morning. He shot him with a 20ga Mossberg Bantam at 10yds. No blind just good camo, patience and woodsmanship. Here are some pics.

Great job! My oldest is 4 now and I don't want him to grow up any faster than he has to. But at the same time, I can't wait to share that kind of excitement with him! I'm hoping he will be able to sit still long enough this spring to share a blind with me while I hunt. He does really well until the deer jerky runs out...

Congrats to the both of you!
