My first hunt kill ever!

Postby SoRichfull » May 22nd, 2009, 12:59 pm

Well, I had never hunted before. This 2009 spring season was my first. I had gone out 6 times prior with no luck. I had heard Toms gobbling close by before, but never saw any. My father flew in from Florida to visit his new grandkids and I thought to myself, maybe I'll take my dad hunting. He has never hunted in his life either, so I figured he would at least enjoy hearing or possibly seeing some wildlife. To make a long story short, we went out this morning, heard them gobbling from the car and headed down to the spot. Once I started calling they gobbled back right away. They never stopped gobbling, so I kept calling. 30-45 minutes later I had my first Tom! Dropped his in his tracks with one shot. His beard measured at 9.5 inches. Needless to say, I'm exited and totally hooked. My dad was also super excited and can't wait to hunt again. Hunting is a great sport. Till next season![;)]

Congrats!  It sounds like there are more where that one came from. Nothing like having it work the way it is supposed to.   Looking forward to seeing a picture of your Dad with one too.
Good Luck.

Great story and great bird!  I got my first on my first hunt at the end of last season.  Just warning you - it will eat you up all the way to the start of next season! [;)]  Welcome to the addiction!
