Another First for Brett

My son-in-law, Brett has had several firsts during the last few hunting seasons. First duck, first deer and now first gobbler.

It was the day before Easter when Rob and I took Brett up to the ranch to see if we could find him a mature tom turkey. We were lucky.

As we entered our property we could see a gobbler strutting for hens a couple hundred yards from the road.

After a careful approach and thoughtful setup, the bird came to Rob’s calling and Brett knocked him down.

“He came in so easy that I figured you’d tell me I couldn’t shoot him,” said Brett, comparing the turkey hunt to other hunts where we wouldn’t make it easy for him.

In this case we couldn’t pass up the big tom as he strutted in front of the jake decoy only 25 yards away.
