    Nice turkey!! He must have a good eye!! Are you going to have the tail mounted? My son had my grandson's mounted and it is gorgeous. They fan it out and it looks kinda like a peacock's fan only in browns and blacks and creams. Almost looks like a quilt project!

    How many can he shoot in your state? My son is an avid hunter and his daughter is also but she's pregnant right now so I don't know if she will go this year or not. She left her boyfriend standing at the door with a sorry honey it is deer season and she went hunting with her dad! She's almost 19 now and engaged so ...

    How old is your son? Does he deer hunt or anything else also?

    My son just turned 13 and this was his first hunt. He can get two turkeys. The season opened today for JR hunters. He is mounting the tail. His Uncle took him out and he got this Tom within the first hour he was out.

    He isn't old enough to hunt deer but he will once he hits the age.

    We are having turkey for supper.

    Hubby is an avid hunter so I know how hard it is to get a turkey. They out smart most all hunters. :D I grew up with turkey and duck callers practicing year round. To hunters, new callers are like new quilting notions to us.

    Nice Turkey! It is Turkey season here also. We owned a country store for 26 years and we were the check in station for all hunting seasons. I miss the hunters and campers. don't miss the hours. Bird hunting is the hardest. If He can get a Turkey, a deer will be no problem when he is older.

    This may be an 'old' post, but congrats to your boy.

    How did the the turkey taste for dinner? How does the tail feather look mounted and where did you hang it?

    Deer season starts here I believe next Monday. Lots of gunfire in the woods already as they sight-in. All the wild turkeys have fled for awhile. Most of the bucks are hiding, too.

    Nice shoot!
