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.

thats great , ,i wish you and your son the best of luck....
i will be taking my grandsons out this year , they are 7 and 8 years old, the 8 year old went a couple times with me when he was 6 and we almost got a shot at 1 but he decided to hit the crow call

what county are you hunting in ??

jwann01 04-10-2013 02:35 PM

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?

jwann01 04-10-2013 02:36 PM

And, good luck to you!

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.

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.

BAP 04-17-2013 06:31 AM

i got busted big time yesterday morning , the hens finally started yelping and i was listening to the hens fighting when a big ole gobbler came in from the wrong side , he snuck in quite to 10yds while i was getting the rock out from under my leg which had fallen asleep and there he was in full strut,,--lol----not the first time that has happened to me probably wont be the

waiting out this big thunder storm before heading to the feild this morning...
