    Took my son turkey hunting the 1st day of the youth turkey hunt and things went really good. Never heard a gobble on the roost or nothing and about 9 herd a goble across the road a pretty good ways off. Made a few calls and he slowly but shurly came in about a hour later and then there he was strutting up to my pretty boy and was ready to fight. Bang! it was all over. I have been hunting my whole life and never did i get so shook up like i did when he shot this tom. I shook so bad it was funny. Bird weighed 26 pounds and 11 inch beard. O-yea it was the first time he has ever shot a gun or done any kind of hunting. He's hooked now!

    Big congrats to you and your son. NICE bird. Teach your boy to hunt and you'll never have to hunt for your boy. In most cases anyway.
