Daughters first Turkey!

Postby dmac1175 » Thu Apr 05, 2012 2:43 pm

I have been trying for 3 season now to put my 10 year old daughter on a bird. She started hunting with me when she was 5 years old. She has been carrying a gun since she was 8, now that she is 10 we finally got it done on this nice Eastern. I don't know who was shaking more me or her.

Great job... Good looking bird as well. It looks like your daughter is hooked for life. Hope this is the first of many for her.

Congradulations to her. My 2 boys 5 and 10 at the time killed their first birds last year. I was like you not sure who was shaking more...lol!!!!

That's very cool. I have a daughter 11 yrs old and would be on cloud 9 if she bagged one. Congrats :thumbsup:
