Turkey video to get everyone fired up!

Posted (edited)

My son won a national youth turkey contest two years ago (had to submit three pics from a turkey hunt, one being a hero shot of a youth with the turkey that he/she took with bow and arrow) and the grand prize was getting an all expenses paid trip to Northern California to hunt turkeys out there during the youth season.  We went last year in mid-late March and had a wonderful trip.  Below is the video the guys who hosted us put together.  It only shows one small bit of the hunt, but it was intense and fun!  The whole trip was wonderful!  Hope you enjoy the video...

That is so cool Scoot.  What a great tribute to an awesome experience.  I'm sure you'll both remember this for the rest of your lives.

Very Awesome Scoot!  I know it was a heck of a trip, but it is cool to be part of it for a few minutes!  Ryan has such an authentic and awesome smile in that picture at the end.

 

Hopefully it happens again this year.

Awesome hunt and Video!!!....and Wow what a bird, those spurs are quite the hooks. Nothing better than a hunt like that, way to get him outdoors. That will be one his favorite hunts he'll ever have, great composure to boot. Dialed and delivered a perfect shot, not his first rodeo!

    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
    • That's what this Cooper's Hawk was doing, right in the middle of the street. Has a nest in the top of the neighbors birch tree. Watched them all Spring with their young. Was pouring buckets here and this guy sat in the middle of the street for ten minutes flapping and spinning around. Think he was having a good time! First and third shots are while he was fanning wings. Camera didn't want to subject auto-focus  on full zoom with the amount of rain coming down, but figgered I wanted to get the pics. Hawk was half a block away
