  • Landon's First Turkey!

    The guys started out their hunt in Spring Hope,N.C. @ 6:15 a.m. where they had been scouting the week before.They set up an Ameristep ground blind and at first light began to call.After only a few yelps they heard a gobbler in the distance.They continued to call at 15-20 minute intervals and at about 8:00 a.m. two hens responded and that brought the gobbler and the hens their way.The two hens crossed in front of the blind bringing the gobbler with them.A few more yelps from the slate call and Landon was on bead with his Rossi .410 with #5 shot.Landon pulled the trigger and...Boom!...he turned to his PaPa and said...'He's a goner PaPa!!'.Landon is 5 years old. This was his second youth day turkey hunt and this was his first kill.

    Landon's turkey
    Sorry it took so long to respond to your comment.Yesterday was a busy and exciting day for Landon.After taking the pics and showing off his turkey to a few more people we took his turkey to the taxidermist.After that it was on to MONSTER JAM!I was hoping we had posted early enough to win the turkey call.Sorry for not posting the date this turkey was killed but it was killed yesterday,April 7,2012.

    Turkey call
    I know you must be a proud Mom.Congrats to Landon on the beautiful bird.I will see to it that he gets a free call from Gobblintom.He's a great guy and I'm sure he would love to give him one for his accomplishment.I have a feeling we will be seeing a lot more turkey pics from this little guy in the future.

    Fre call to landon
    That's OK landon's mom and Diane is right, I had every intention on getting Young Landon a call but just wanted to be sure it was a 2012 Youth day Gobbler and not just a contest Entry..You know..., to keep the Conflict of interest stuff out of the Way..Heck Taking a turkey with a 410 is worth a call anyway LOL and 5 years Old? WOW!!!...Thanks and email me or Diane your address...Hope you stick around the site...She (Diane) needs some help at times with the Guys LOL...Tell Landon Congrats again and thank so much for sharing his success!!!

    Woo Hooo
    Woo Hoo Landon.....you may not know it now but you have just won a call that is going to rule the Turkey world. Gobblintom is a little slow on accepting fame and reconition. But he is the best Turkey hunter/call maker I know. Heck they are going to have a booth set up at all the Turkey conventions in the near future with his name on it!

    You keep that call in good condition and you might be able to sell it on E-bay for a new car when your 16 years old.....lol!

    Great job Landon! We're gonna start calling you 410ernator!
