Son's first turkey

Postby Super Dave 32 » Wed May 06, 2009 3:57 pm

I don't know if this picture will show up or not but here's my 12 year old's first tom. Almost 10" beard, 20# with 3/4" spurs. He was a happy camper (Dad was too!). He killed it opening day of youth season but I'm just now figuring out how to post the pics.

Way to go Super Dave, ain`t nothing like calling in your sons first bird. If your like me you were pretty torn up to say the least. I thought I was going to pass out before my nefhew took the shot.

CONGRATULATIONS

I was in your shoes for the first time turkey hunting with my Son this year. I will admit that my eyes were welling up a couple tears of elation when he struck his bird in the face! it's a memory only us Father's with successful Son's can feel. We are the privileged one's! :beer: Almost better than pulling the trigger......almost! :wink:

I'm with you Pete! I love to hunt turkey but having my boy shoot his first, now that's special. My 16 year old daughter told me that she "might" be interested in turkey hunting next spring. Now THAT'S exciting for me. She has NEVER showed any interest in hunting. Little brother's success and stories made her interested. That's an answer to my prayers if she will go! :grooving:

Good to hear that your daughter's showing some interest. Daddy's girl? They always want the attention! My six-year-old Daughter will be hunting. She basically plucked every feather she could from the bird I had gotten today to add to her feather collection. She really liked the green iridescent feathers that sit under the fan. I will admit, that that green is out of this world. She was in awe at the fact that the feathers changed colors when you turned it in the light. Ben Franklin was on to something when he suggested the Wild Turkey should be our National Bird.
