    Default Sons first turkey

    My 13 year old son shot his first bird today. Actually a first for the family as the old man hasn't ever shot a turkey lol. We stalked through a thick 120 acre cedar thicket and after about 300 yards and 1 1/2 hours later we heard turkeys talking in the ravine about 100 yards ahead of us. We crawled on our hands and knees to a downed tree branch and waited till they walked out. He shot the lead, a nice jake, at about 25-30 yards. I thought there was 4 or 5 turkeys with him but when the shot rang off about 20 of them went mad. I couldn't believe it as I only saw 3 of them! My friend who owns the land told me 2 years ago him and his dad spotted 175 of them one morning while they were deer hunting. When I was a kid growing up 60 miles from here, a high school buddy of mine had to travel across missouri to turkey hunt with his grandpa. Now 25 years later, SW Iowa and NW Missouri are saturated.

    Thanks guys. Sorry took so long to get back here. I have been super busy trying to make my wife a recipe book on shutterfly with about 5000 of her recipes in a ziploc bag lol. It's been hectic working on this project. Thanks a bunch.
