    First time I have ever turkey hunted in a Spring Snow. It was pretty neat. Landon killed his first double bearded bird.
    19lb, 10.5" and 5.25" beards, 1-1/4 and 1-1/8 spurs.

    KY BIRD TAG OUT HOLDEN.jpg Well the young hunter tagged out in KY opening day. 18lbs 9.5'' beard 1 1/8'' spurs. He told me on the way home from KY said "Dad, I can't wait!!" "I said for what son?" He replies " OH youth season opens in one week!!!" I say " Good lord son, you just harvested 38lbs 20 3/4'' beard, and 2 1/4'' of spurs in one weeks time in KY!!!" hahahah I said you have done more than most grown men do in a hunting career and not to mention both of your KY birds are on film one being in 2'' of snow!!!! He says, " I know Dad, but its turkey season and it only comes once!" hahahaha I said you got it bad son!!!! the spring thunder has got into your blood!!! he said" Dad , anyone can claim they are a bowhunter over a 5gallon bucket of corn!" he says "dad the real hunters get it done calling turkeys!" hahahahah ooooo did the young boy have me laughing coming home from KY adding even more the last week we just spent together in KY for the opening days of both the youth and adult season!!! memories that will never be forgotten and so fortunate to be able to be a part of a young man upbringing.......not just cause his my son but for any young hunter......we owe it to them and the future of sport to hook these children on the outdoors and away from the demons this world withholds........I did mention to him however, that when the OH season does start his 7yr old brother is up to bat first!! hahaha I said if we can pull of a double great, but if a single bird comes in his 7yr old little brother shoots first.........hahhahaha......he said OK dad I will be the backup gun for a change........great times in KY and hope more to come in OH.......good luck to all hunting KY.........
