Opening day of turkey season was one I won’t forget soon. After calling in a bunch of Jakes for Darrell, we decided to head out and call it a morning. With the weather turning bad, Darrell decided to stay home that evening and not go out. During this time, I get home and I am swarmed by my girls wanting to know how it went. Told them turkeys were there, but no good toms to shoot. In an instant, my two youngest asked if they could go. Without hesitation, I said yep, lets get ready. Two hours later we were on the road heading back to the blind. As we get all our gear in the blind, the excitement level was over the top. Sitting for the first two hours with nothing happening the mood started to change. All of us were getting cold and I looked at them and said we should hang for another 15 minutes and if nothing comes into the field we should leave. They both agreed and the plan was made. I don’t know if it was luck or just destiny, but 5 minutes later, two big toms came into the field. I looked over and both girls eyes were the size of watermelons. The game was on. After a little calling, the birds were coming in on a dime. Jaidyn was saying shoot daddy shoot. I was trying to explain to them both what was happening with the turkeys in front of us, plus trying to run the camera. I don’t believe our eyes ever were off the birds. After about 15 minutes in front of us the time had come to make the shot. As I drew my Hoyt back, both girls held their breath. As the arrow was released and hit its mark I honestly don’t know who was more excited. With cheers of joy we had our turkey on the ground. Both my girls were so excited to get spend time in the blind with me and to have a turkey on the ground to boot. Man what an amazing hunt. They both dove out of the blind and had there hands on him before I could blink and eye. Amazing footage, but even more amazing time with my girls. Thanks Jaidyn and Tailyr for hanging with me and sharing great moments in the field. That is what its about, spending time with your kids in the woods!!
