First Turkey Hunt

The ones with feathers!! This was on wifey's bucket list and I had never hunted turkeys either. We booked a hunt through Early Winters Outfitting and had a great time. Cheryl missed her first try althought the ranch owner said he saw feathers fly but shortly after got a second chance on a nice Jake. 7am day one.



I got my first chance shortly after on a huge Tom. The guides worked their butts off to get us set up and I missed. It got spoked by a gust of wind and due to position I had to shoot left handed. It jumped 2 feet in the air and flipped over then got up and walked off, boy were we all bumed! That evening we spotted some birds where Cheryl had tried for her first and watched them for 45 minutes before the walked away. We left but on our return, there they were crossing the road. I busted my Tom at about 45 yards, there was no doubt this time. All in all, a great hunt with great people and done in one day!

I think those big smiles say it all!
Great pictures. And it is always nice to put a face to a name. Your wife is beautiful and you ain't so bad either.

Great pictures!!! I enjoy all sorts of hunting and shooting but Turkey hunting has surpassed whitetails as my absolute favorite!
Looks like the both of you had a great time. The really fun part is when you call them in yourselves. And honestly with practice, it is not that hard.
That's great that the both of you could share a hunt. My wife is very supportive of my gun/handloading/hunting hobby but she has no real interest in it herself.
Thanks for the great pictures!!

Great weather, 40 in the morning and maybe up to high 50s in the afternoon. Thanks 303 for keeping the rain at Chelan.

We do have turkey, up here. Have even seen them in our yard. Really don't see how they can get though our snow and cold winters. They must be a tough bird.

Look like a great" FUN" hunt! Just curious, what size shot do you use? I usually go with #5.
In MO, you have to use 4,5 or 6.
