I still remember the first photo I ever saw of someone in Louisiana with a wild turkey gobbler. Thirty years or so ago, north Louisiana had few wild turkeys with a short season and areas open to hunting few and far between. Anyone who could bag a gobbler under these conditions had something special going for him. He had to be either extremely lucky, or he was a darn good turkey hunter.

I wasn’t sure how the boys ages 12 and 13 would do on first acquaintance, That seems like an awkward age, but they did super fine. It was too cool for them to spend time in the pool as was planned, but Cade had a new drone Jonathan had bought him with a camera on it , and Russell had some other fancy mechanical gadget, so that kept them busy, plus their huge backyard was a great place for them to ride around in the 4-wheeler.
