Last Friday was the first time for her in the woods this spring.... with the help of our host Hollar Hunter and alot of luck, she scored a good bird.

22lbs, 2ozs on weight
1 3/16" & 1 5/16" spurs
9 7/8" beard



To say we worked for this bird is an understatement!! HH can attest to that.... 2 miles hiking, 250 yards belly crawling in creek bottom between the creek (river after the heavy rain Thursday) and large open field.... having hens within 8 feet and practically walking over us... flushing them across the creek during mid day set-up and then calling two gobblers and a hen back to our side of the creek.... then 20 yards spittin-n-drumin when the safety was clicked off, was all priceless.... 5+ hour ordeal and it was finally over.... She had the best shot as I was facing the other direction... or it could have been a possible double....

Thanks again HH for the hunt of her life!!

No doubt we worked for that bird! Wouldn't have wanted it any other way though. We did and had about everything happen one could think of on a turkey hunt. Than in the end to sweet talk them Toms for an hour that spooked across the river and have to watch them walk and strut that bluff edge FOREVER before finally flying back over to our side. THAN watching them spitting and drumming FOREVER before she could get a shot, it was about all we could take!!!

I had a great time with y'all and looking forward to next time...

Forgot to tell you this... You know that fella that came down on the can-am and was trying to drive out on the bridge with the water over flowing it like it was. Well that next morning he decided he would drive his caterpillar down there and pick up all those trees laying across the bridge. He had one of those brush/tree picker front ends on it kinda like a track how bucket with the thumb. Well the river was still washing over the bridge so he couldn't see the sides and he rolled the caterpillar off the side of the bridge and was completely submerged!!!!!! Oh boy was lucky he got out with his life. It took 2 trackhoes to pick it up and get it out....

Some people just got to learn the hard way..... should have just waited until the water went down to atleast be able to see the bridge outline.
