1st Tom!

This year I finally got the chance to go Turkey hunting! Something that I've been wanting to do for a LONG time. I went with my buddy Tyler down to Southwest Iowa (prime turkey country) on Friday, April 20th and did an afternoon hunt that was full of Jakes, Hens and Deer. It wasn't meant to be that night.

So, we went back to our hacienda that evening, came up with a great plan after a few select beverages to that obviously got our creativity flowing.

We woke up Saturday at 4:00 am to get to our spot and set up before the turkeys woke up from their roost. At 6:30 am, I bagged a 24 lb bird with a 9 1/2 beard, and 1" spurs. A fantastic bird.

59 minutes later, Tyler got his 25lb bird.

An excellent hunt was celebrated that night!
