I thought it would be a fun weekend especially getting to hunt with other women. I took my turkey the day before the group was to arrive so my mission was to see some other ladies harvest birds. Though all three are skilled hunters none of them had harvested a turkey before.
Turkey hunting can be tedious and tricky. Most of our set ups are on the ground with out a blind, which means that movements have to be kept to a minimum and camouflage is head to toe. That was no problem for us, we looked like walking ads for Hercamoshop.com / Prois.

Stacy was the first to strike feathered gold with a nice jake Saturday morning. As a bonus to her hunt Sarah and I got some footage in the same field of a big boss Tom mating a hen, it was like National Geographic!!
The afternoon hunt produced a bird for Sarah. I took Sarah out to a farm that had yet to produce a turkey harvest this season. I was sure we would get birds in as the day waned. Sure enough, three jakes came in to our Zink Avian X decoy affectionately named 'Rosie'. We got two of the jakes mounting Rosie on film and Sarah took out the biggest of the decoy assaulters.
