1st Annual Curves in Camo Ladies Weekend

Boy-I needed that!  Most weekends are welcome but last weekend was a whole lot more than just welcome.  During the long trade show season I arranged for the ladies from -Sarah, Shelly and Stacy- to come up to our farm to hunt long beards.
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 / 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.
All four ladies with Sarah's jake. 
The best part was the stories that night around the fire under the super moon.  We laughed and talked and relaxed, which in the busy world we all live in is a rarity.  We had some deep fried wild turkey and alligator to go with our hunting stories.  The whole weekend was more relaxing than a week at a spa.  I can't wait to host another.
