2018 Spring Turkey
Idaho Youth Controlled Hunt 9004

My 14 y/o daughter got her first Turkey! We are turkey hunting newbs so with a little luck, some poor calling, gracious land owners and some willing turkeys we got the job done. My daughter wanted to shoot her turkey with her bow, but after a couple close calls and realizing how difficult it was going to be to get one of these keen eyed, jumpy turkeys into under 10 yards, draw her bow, and get a shot off, we decided that the shotgun was our best bet this year. We spent several hours over 6 days sitting in the blind waiting for just the right opportunity. I'm so proud of the patience and perseverance my daughter showed throughout, never complaining, and always willing to give it her all. He isn't the biggest turkey that was in the field that evening, but he was the perfect first turkey for us. We can't wait to do it again.

Here's a link to the video:
