    tk1.jpg tk2.jpg tk3.jpg tk4.jpg tk5.jpg tk6.jpg tk7.jpg tk23.jpg Our last youth season. Hit camp for a much needed change of pace over the weekend for youth season. Potroast was hunting this weekend with a Knight TK2000 muzzleloading shotgun. Saturday was quiet, one of our slowest days in a long time. No gobbles, only heard hens at flydown. We hunted most of the day without results. Hit em again Sunday morning and got a few gobbles on roost, but nothing close. About 8:30, we heard a spit and drum coming from our left and PR looked up to see a nice tom standing 25 yards to the left of our blind. He eased the barrel around and the rest is history.
    A great overall weekend. Lots of good food, a little fishing, lots of relaxing.

    Side by side pic is Potroast with his first youth season bird way back in 2011 and his last on Sunday. Rest are just a few shots of our weekend.
