    Awesome. Unfortuntly another season has escaped us without my 9 year old dtr getting a turkey. She jas been goin with me since she was 5 and been carring a gun weapon for two years now. Year before this seadon had a nice one at 7 steps and we couldnt pull it off. This season 55 yards was as close as i could get her. Oh well maybe next year wjen shes 10.

    Sweet girl (both of them) and a great turkey, almost as big as she is :D

    Just wondering, is there a legal minimum age for hunting with bow or gun in the USA? In my country (Holland) you have to be at least 18 years old to hunt with a gun (crossbows are not permitted), but here hunting is not such a popular and accepted passtime as it is in the USA. Also, because our county is so small and densely populated, the safety regulations for hunting are very strict.
