Turkey anyone?

Well the day started off cold and we can not say he did not have a chance early on but he missed the shot and the Birds dissappeared for most of the rest of the day but that night he got a second chance and connected this beauty. Yes that is a 20 gauge sidebyside, and no he was not using shells that cost $2.00 each. Just some good old home loads of #5's pushed by bluedot.

A few more photos

You can see by the grin on his face that he was happy. If you could see dad's face you'd know how proud he is.

Kirkned, The grin says it all. He will always remember the hunt with you. Is that a Black Hills bird?
