WA Turkey soon!!

Postby drakehntr » Sun Apr 13, 2008 10:06 pm

I have been a waterfowl hunter for 20 years, but this year I started a new job and moved to a new part of the state where the outdoor activities are much more abundant. So I am finally putting on a new hat and trying turkeys for the first time. I have the camo, calls, gear and am pumped for our season to start in two days. I patterned my Benelli at 40yds today and it was a definate kill on the target. Here in Western WA, there aren't a lot of turkeys, but at least I have a month of hiking in the woods and enjoying what I love most about the outdoors. Predator and big game hunting is peaking my interest these days too. Waterfowl is still what streams through my blood, but I always have room for more addictions. See you in the field!!

last scout

Went on my last scout before the season starts Tuesday. Jumped a small buck and saw a couple other Turkey addicts doing the same thing. No turkeys, but I know they are in the area. Thanks for the encouragement guys and If I smack one this season I will have a pic for you all to see my fat grin.
