Turkey of The Month "April 2012"

    I'm running really behind this month. We have been really busy and have been in Florida with the kids for spring break. We were able to hunt a couple of days while there and my son was able to take his first Osceola. He has now killed every turkey but his Gould. We have a Gould hunt lined up for later this month and if he is successful he will be the youngest person to ever kill a world slam. We have been very lucky so far and for all of you that have taken kids hunting you know how difficult it can be to make it happen. He has missed a few along the way but as of this past weekend he has managed to kill 12 turkeys unassisted. He has killed every species including his oscillated and all he lacks is the Gould. This past week he killed two Osceolas one with 1 3/4 spurs and one with 1" spurs then we came home and he killed a red phase eastern that is absolutely beautiful. Hopefully by the end of the month he will have his world slam. I have included a couple of pictures and if you guys get a Chance say a little prayer for him. He doesnt realize how lucky he is right now but maybe one day he will. I told him that I would take him as much as I could and when I get old he would have to take me. He seemed to be okay with that. I want to thank everyone for posting picture of birds and hopefully all of you will have as much success hunting as Drake has had this year. Sorry again for being late with the post and hopefully I will be on time next month.

    If anyone of you need help with turkeys or have any questions please give me a call

    I hope you all have great season and take in several birds
