Default Couple of cousins' birds

I posted Turner's first bird of the year on youth weekend. He killed his second of the year this morning with his Dad, and his 15 year old brother, John, killed a double calling them in by himself. He doesn't look 15 since he is already 6'3 and about 190.

Born hunters. But, it helps that their Dad is one of the best or the best turkey hunter that I know.

Do they hunt private ground Timmy? They obviously have a great bird population!

The biggest plus for them is that they get their asses out of bed and go.

It's private but across the river is a WMA.

Hope you're not getting into that whole public land critters are the hardest animals to hunt, and private land animals are like taking candy from a baby.

Not touchy at all. A dead deer or turkey is a dead no matter where it's killed. Just stating that a lot of private land is hunted as hard or harder than public land.

Yep. Was just curious. Lots of public land has more turkeys than private land. That's why folks are hunting it. I kinda lost my fire on turkey hunting after my bud Ed got married. She has 3 grown sons that he takes now to the honey hole in Tennile. I think most my enjoyment of hunting turkeys was doing it with buddies. Sure wish Cody had taken more of a interest in the sport.
