Great times ahead for you for sure! My oldest daughter is 16 and I still had to wake her up several times and drag her out of bed. We are about 10 miles from Gillett.

Just had a run in with an gobbler I know fairly well....this is a photo from last year but I just had the same bird at 25 yards.

Heís at least 5 years old



He has a very unique beard and has behaved the same every year.

Well that was quick, we had 4 toms come in and Brooklyn made a great shot on not one bird, but on two with one shot. Her first turkey hunt is a success id say



This bird had some serious hooks but not much of a beard








The second one was a nice 3 year old

After Brooklyn shot her double a lone bird fired up behind us. About 20 min later he came in and I shot him at 6 yards. What a perfect spring turkey hunt
