    Looks like my wife, son and I will be going spring turkey hunting. I have only been in the woods a few times squirrel hunting with my boy recent,having not been out in about 20 years. We are all excited. Especially my wife. She just recently started shooting, and soon to own her first gun. Mossberg 500 20 ga. They were even the first two , to pre-register for the spring hunter safety course.

    I have been turkey hunting for 10 years.People have an attitude about hunting turkey.I ask why they dont hunt turkey and their like if i want turkey i can go to the store and buy one.There is no better thrill than having one sneak up behind you and start Drumming or Shock Gobble

    Those same people eat fish sticks, hormone laced beef, pork, and veggies covered in who knows what......:eek: The only Buck Fever they experience is at the Cash Register.

    Spring Turkey is a blast. Good luck. Pattern your guns and wear plenty of cammo. I took a fall hen with my grandsons Mossy 20. Should have had two but they got out of range pretty quick. Second shot fell short at about 45 yrds.

    One of those anti hunting types asked me once why I hunt when I can go to the store...I told them I don`t hunt I harvest organic meat, I wish I had a camera for the look on there face

    Maybe I should re-type saying, my cousin and sister and brother n law invited me to hunt Turkeys on their property. That should clarify it better for those anti gunners. I don't need them jumping to conclusions. Lol

    Good luck. Ours start on the 22nd . 9 days and counting. We're all getting pretty excited. My brother n law is setting up not far from where they roost. A creek runs diagonal to our left. He says the won't cross a creek. out in front of the blind 50 yrs is a place where they like to dust themselves. And off to our right , a couple hundred yards is an old cut cornfield they go to quiet often. We put out a few sticks planted in the ground to mark yardage for my wife and son. Now we wait to see if the plan comes together :)
