Turkey Season!

"For years my wife, Stephanie has made fun of me. I can't imagine the number of times I have heard, why do you hunt turkeys?

She wasn't referring to me guiding turkey hunters, as she knows that is what I do. She was making fun of me because I hunt turkeys when I am not guiding anyone at all. She would say," Deer, bobcats, ducks, bear, or mountain lion I could understand, but, turkeys. There's no skill to it, there's no glory in it, and there is no risk of anything whatsoever.

Each and every time I would all but beg her to come with me and she would refuse. Finally this season, she agreed to go. As luck would have it the wind and rain set in; but I was determined to make this happen. The first evening the wind was blowing out of the southeast at about 35 mph with a heavy overcast. I knew where a gobbler was roosting and thought I knew exactly how he would approach his roost." ....

The Thrill of the First Hunt

"Taking a child hunting for their first time is a special rite of passage. It takes some planning so that everything goes off without a hitch. You want their very first experience to be a fond memory and not an emotional scar.  Preparation can and should begin early. Bring your budding outdoor enthusiast out in the woods while you are shed hunting, scouting for stand sites, checking trail camera was or even planting food plots. Make it fun, you’re enthusiasm and excitement will be contagious. Use this time together to talk about deer biology, tracks, what deer eat, when they move and what scrapes and rubs are. Kids are like sponges and they will soak up the knowledge quickly. Lead by example and practice what you preach. He respectful of nature and your child will follow suit." ...
