Got pics?

Postby stumpjumper » Sat Mar 01, 2008 4:48 pm

Hey everyone, let`s see some pics of turkey that you`ve taken

This is me and my nefhew Cody. It was his first turkey hunt ever. We were on a permit hunt in NC. Had 6 gobblers in front of him. This was the second largest one. Big boy wouldn`t break away from the pack

Image

The following weekend I called in his second bird. The boy limited out on only his second hunt. I couldn`t have been happier!!!! Lets just say, I did my turkey dance for a good 30 minutes after he pulled the trigger

Image

Here is one of the birds I`ve taken. I mainly hunt public land. Which makes things alot harder seeing these birds are very call shy.

Great pics jumper, not much with a camera here but I do enjoy seeing the broad smiles on the face of a "new turkey hunter" Don't ya love it. Sharing "that" experience with a fellow sportsman is just about as good as it gets :yes:

I`d rather call in a bird for a first time hunter than pull the trigger myself. Those two days with my nefhew will last a life time. I am having the first bird mounted for him. He has a spot right over his bed picked out already.
I have been alot more dilagent about taking my camera along with me. I want to remember ALL of my friends, hunts, and birds

I agree stump, it's about the calling not the killing. Most of my calling is for others as well. It's such a rush when you have gone up against "de man" and he gets invited to ride home in 'yer truck" :wink:

i'm about to call my friends dad and see if he can email me the pictures from that hunt i went on in west tx. i got some print outs of it but no digital copies. stump i too would much rather call in the bird for a new hunter and allow them to kill one than do so myself. but with all of the turkeys i have killed in the past several years, i still get huge sense of joy when i trick another into coming within shotgun or bow range. i dont think i will ever lose that feeling, at least i hope not.

For those that know me, I live in the middle of a pasture. Drove up from work last year and this fellow was under the pear tree in the back yard, took for the tree line 300 yards away and stopped, I got inside and throwed my camo suit on and watched, he started back towards the pear tree. I came out low under the bush line next to the pasture and waited a few. I yelped one time and he was right on the other side of the bushes from me. I stood up with gun to shoulder and BOOM. You can see I still got uniform pants on. 17Lbs 9 inch beard and 1 inch spurs. :biggrin:

Preach on to all my public land brothers, Thats the only way I roll, and it feels so good to be able to compete with everyone and their brother to take mature turkeys. I can't seem to compress my pics enough to fit on here, but every bird I have taken has been off of public land.

There is a learning curve, but once you break the curve, its to much fun.
