Complete Newbie here!

Postby Tom21inNM » April 25th, 2011, 5:18 am

I am actually going on my First Turkey hunt this weekend, yeah little late in the season but the Bro in Law and I have been shooting a lot at the range lately and have got the Hankering to go out and try our luck. I have to say the advice you all give out here has been a huge help in our prep. I really enjoy the sight.

A little background on why this year. Last year on an Elk hunt, coming up dry we decided to hop in the truck mid-day and explore, rounding a bend and a little above a stock pond we spotted a few hens head towards the tree line. At the lead was the Biggest Tom I may have ever seen, right then I was telling myself I found a new hobby. Ive seen dozens of Turkey in the wild and this big boy made an impression on me. Thanks again all, good luck and good hunting.

Thanks, I am DEFINATELY looking forward to it, first hunt. I figure if I can even get one to come in close enough to see it'll be a small victory. Bagging one will have me planning my next trip already!

Only a couple more days, its bit both me on the Bro in law bad, so bad in fact I have an order from cabelas coming today with more gear, and he went out and stocked up with more gear at lunch today. The weather is suppose to cool off and possibly snow late Saturday early Sunday but no chance it stops us.
