Got to the field a little later than intended.

We were still getting situated in the blind, as I had just put out the dekes.

Worked on getting the shooting stick height just right, which way to turn, etc.

All of a sudden, Ivy pointed, and said, "Turkeys"!

I wish I had had the video camera going, but hadn't had time. After an eternity, we finally got in position, as 3 jakes came to the decoys. The four hens stayed back. Not a longbeard in the bunch.

She had to wait for them to separate, and put the hammer on him when I got him to stick its head up.

Congratulations, and thank you for getting her out there.

I agree that the picture on the old fireplace needs to be blown up and framed. Fantastic picture with a classic mix of the old and the new.
