We didn't have to look too far to get a glimpse of these turkeys...They were looking for snacks in our freshly mowed pasture and walked across our yard, about 20 steps from our front door. In addition to the ones pictured here, there were also four additional adults.
My friend was turkey hunting on our deer lease on Saturday morning. He said around 8 am he heard a sound of an animal drinking some water. He looked to his right and about 10 feet in front of him was a big cat just drinking water out of a mud hole. He estimated it around 130 to 140 lbs. He was sitting on a tree and he said that it never made a sound until he heard it drinking water. He left.... Read More
I had the opportunity this week to make a turkey/hog hunt in south Texas with my close friend and what a blast it was. We hunted a ranch near Crystal City and the gobblers were in full rut. On the first morning hunt I worked a big gobbler for over an hour and videoed him strutting with 4 hens. About 2 hours later I called in 3 big gobblers and took a nice one, He had a 9 3/8” beard and 1 ½”.... Read More
As this year’s annual Turkey Quest is drawing to a close, I can’t help but reflect upon one of the best hunts that I have ever been lucky enough to experience. My turkey hunting partner and I took our kids to a ranch in Goldthwait Texas this year for Texas’ first spring youth only turkey season opener.

I was able to get video footage of an awesome turkey hunt! The field was full of birds to include 9 Toms. I had 3 Toms hang-up just out of range and after about a 10 min. stand-off they finally commit and come in nicely!

This is Brice Crochet (age 14) with his first Turkey. He and his dad (Scotty Crochet) were hunting public land in Mississippi when this Gobbler came in struttin, drummin and gobbling. He was giving them the whole show when Brice took him at 15 yards. Needless to say he is hooked. Congratulations -- take a kid hunting.
Headed up to west Tennessee Monday. My buddy has a great peice of land near Jackson TN. Got bou-cou deer and turkeys. I might try shooting one of them birds. Can I shoot one with a bow? Do I use my broadheads? There are so many turkeys there it's crazy. Seems like it would be too easy to shoot one with a gun. I sat in a ground blind with him and his boys last year and they shot turkeys.... Read More
