Yep! Taking my son to the camp Friday afternoon and hopefully pulling the trigger early Saturday morning. Turkeys are plentiful. Just hope my son can remain patient enough to stay out for a few hours.

We will be hunting in Breckinridge County. My son is 7 too. I took him last year but the weather was bad and he lost interest real fast. If I remember correctly, you are in Grayson County. Right? We have a place at Nolin in Twin Coves. You familiar with the area?

If I can find a decent spot I might actually get a chance to do some turkey hunting this year. I do most of my hunting in Bullitt County though.

I've always wanted to try morels. Never found any. So many turkeys where I hunt when I find them they have already destroyed all of them

That's how our morning went, except I fried up mine the following day. Did not hear a single hen that morning, but the toms were very vocal. Had one communicate with my call for about ten minutes, then nothing. About 15 minutes go by, and I see him checking out my decoy. Tried to draw him in closer, but he stayed out about 50 yards. I knew I could make the shot, but I wanted him to come in closer and strut his stuff so my son could see it. Any way, had to take the long shot.
