    Whats up all.. Long story short lol. Me and my dad have never turkey hunted until yesterday. I ordered some decoys and been trying to learn how to call off of youtube and reading. I actually never expected to see anything the first day moreless get one. So after it stopped raining we got set up about 830. I told dad if one came out he gets the first shot and if there was two then I would take a shoot after him. Im thinking were never going to see anything cause I dont no what Im doing lol. So I called just a little bit and less than an hr later 3 ran out up to the decoys strutting and gobbling and going crazy. It was the coolest thing I have ever seen in the woods. Of course it takes dad forever to shoot. Im going crazy waiting on him lol. On 2 shoots he had one down and I fired twice at one flying away. Mine didnt fall but I wasnt sure if I hit him or not. So I walked the road attaching the 2 fields and he took off running threw the woods. Sadly enough he didnt run fast enough lol. So the first day for the both of us and we had 2 thunder chickens down in an hour...And Iv heard it was hard lol. I will take beginners luck anyday. Anyways being there with dad and seeing how excited and happy he was, was the best thing in the world. His was 21 lbs with a 7inch beard and mine was 16 lbs with a 5inch beard. Im hooked for life to say the least. I guess I didnt make it a short story. lol sorry

    You never know
    You never know what might happen in the woods until you go. I started turkey hunting with my oldest daughter just six years ago and have been hooked ever since. Have been fortunate enough to get at least one every year. It's great that you were able to share it with your dad.
