First Turkey

If you miss, and miss, and miss, you still have a chance as did FS Member bone’s daughter as she bagged her first turkey of the season on a WMA during a youth hunt. I asked "Is he still there? My daughter says he’s not going anywhere. I peek out the slit and the gobbler is beating the hell out of the decoy. I find another shell and slowly load it and tell her "last chance. Aim lower and bring the gun up to your face." She shoots and kills him clean. It's 7:05.
