This was a long awaited weekend for a certain young man in our house! The weekend that he and his Dad could go turkey hunting!!
This was their set up in the woods.....
Standing with his inflatable Jack and Jill! Never saw the likes! :)
Danny looking for turkeys. Not sure, maybe he was using his turkey call here?
Danny "talked" with a turkey for over 1/2 hour in the morning but it never showed its face.
About 11:30, when they only had an hour and a half left to hunt, Dan got a phone call. He was talking on his cell to one of this friends, when Danny whispered, "Dad, there's a turkey!!" And Dan said before he knew what happened, Danny had fired a shot.
And he was successful! :)
(no, the tree didn't fall on the turkey) :)
Someone is very, very happy!! :) He's been practicing his turkey calls, watching turkey hunt video's on YouTube and reading up how to butcher turkeys. It was not in vain! :)
It was a nice sized turkey.....had an 8.5" beard, 3/4 " spurs and 1 3/4" hooks.
Weighed in at 16.5 lbs.
I am so proud of him and happy that his hunting dreams came true this year! I think he's been bit by the bug!! :) Now he can swap hunting stories with Grandpa Horst when we go to visit! :)
On another note, I am looking forward to a nice spring week with high's in the 70's!! May have to do some outside work. I think the garden may be calling, too! :)
This weekend, we are doing a new venture for our family. We are having a food stand at an auction about an hour and a half from here. We are excited, but a little nervous about it. Hopefully I remember to take my camera!
Have a great week and enjoy the coming of Spring, wherever you are!
