I'm 22 and I saw my first bird die when I was 11 or 12 I think. Started hunting on my own several years ago but got really serious about it last year. Killed my first and second bird last year. Both were jakes that came in gobbling and strutting. Also called in a bird for my dad the same morning as my second kill last year. Looking forward to adding to my number this season!

I'm 29 years old and I have shot around 24 birds in the past 19 years of hunting. I quit turkey hunting for about 4 years and just now getting the fever back. Shot a triple with one shot when I was 14 and have killed a couple of doubles. I have filmed a grand slam for my uncle and hunted with some old timers that taught me a lot. Grew up 2 miles from the Ft. Stewart boundary and have had a many successful hunt on the river.

Pretty new to turkey hunting.

32yrs old, didn't start turk hunting seriously till 05.

Killed my first bird in 05.

Killed 6 more since.

Called in about as many birds for other folks as I've shot myself.

Don't know what I was thinking starting the turkey hunting game so late in life......................... Well, I do. Largemouth Bass.

I got introduced to turkey hunting by my sister's old boyfriend. He was a turkey nut and wondered why we never hunted them on our Morgan poperty. I was 14. At 15(I think) back in 1996 I killed my first bird. The following year I was taken to Texas for the first time and really really got the bug bad after that trip. Have killed at least one every year but one. I'm somewhere between 30 and 35 birds. The fire has gotten even worse the older I get too.
