    This is my oldest...and my best huntin buddy. He has tagged along with me on turkey hunts since he was 3. He turns 9 this month. We have tried since he was 5 to get him on a bird..just hasnt worked out..until this morning! Called this one along with 3 others and some hens. This was without a doubt the sub ordinate bird in the group..but he showed up in range first. We heard these birds gobble probably 200+ times, seen 4 coyotes, and got a good show of the other birds whooping up on his after he shot. To say we are excited is an understatemen .
    This lil feller has stayed with it all these years with no harvest..but hasnt once quit or give up. Im beyond thankful that it all came together this morning.
