what age did you start hunting turkey and with who.
i started hunting turkey at the age of 20. i graduated in 1975 and turkeys started to come back around here. i didn't shoot my first bird until 1980 .
i learn to hunt turkey on my own.

28 Got into turkey hunting through a friend at work. We didn't have very many turkeys when I was growing up and my dad has still never hunted them. I'm going to try and teach him this year. That will be an interesting turn of events seeing how he taught me all these years about every other type of hunting I do.

I started w/ my dad and uncle when I was 9 or 10 but couldn't carry a gun until I was 12. I still rememeber the day that got me hooked when we broke up a flock of gobblers in the fall and my dad and uncle each killed longbeards. I still have that pic of us 3,me in the middle, holdin those gobblers hanging in my room... Hard to beleive that was 8 years ago!!

I believe I started when I was 13. I am 16 now and I have one bird down. I started hunting with my dad and off/on with my friend and cousin. This turkey huntin' business is pretty addicting, lol.

I started when I was 10. I went with dad from about age 4. I have been in the woods my whole life and I am very thankfull for that. I believe I killed my first tom when I was twelve. It weighed 22lbs and it had an 8in beard. That was one of the best days of my life. BB
