Saw this picture today and had to share it. I encourage all of you to take a kid or even an adult that has never hunted before out turkey hunting. The rewards are so amazing. I started a Learn To Hunt event 5 years ago and we have gotten a lot of new hunters hooked. The fact is they don't even have to shoot anything to make it a memory of a lifetime! I had a single mother and her son do it one year and neither one shot a turkey, it happened to be Easter weekend, and they said it was the best Easter they had ever had. They both saw birds, heard lots of gobbling, and the mother missed a nice gobbler.
Just remember, beginners make mistakes, as we all do, but that is part of the learning process. Don't get frustrated, and if they do harvest a bird, sit back, look at the smile on their face, and listen to them tell the story over and over again to anyone that will listen!!
