Here is our video from last spring in Northern California. Alot of you followed our thread and read the stories and saw pics. Well here is how those hunts unfolded. We sure had a lot of fun making this video. Can't wait til our season opens. Couple more weeks for us. Hope you guys enjoy the video and good luck to everyone this spring!
Last year like every year was a blast and had its own special times in the turkey woods with old friends and new. Me personally I enjoy calling in birds for my buddies and family members more than for myself as you saw. To be apart of a successful hunt and involved for me is what drives me, especially with the kids. In a couple weeks again I'll be taking a junior, Ryan out and can't wait to spend time in the woods with him and his father Scott (Scoot). Speaking the (turkey) language is something that I take pride in and enjoy with turkeys and other game that's callable as well. I also love the challenge of hunting without a blind. It's very addicting once I figured it out and what's required. This year again will be great and until then I'll be prepping and dreaming of big Cali longbeards. A special thanks to my buddy Brent (Passthru) for editing this video for us. As you saw his caribou video, which was recently posted was awesome as well. Good luck to everyone this spring and hope everyone enjoys the video!
Ironbow, I thought that was great too! I also loved the footage of Joe's head shot-- too cool! No bullhead there, just a spot on shot from pretty close range! Remarkably great footage!
Ryan and I were pumped up about coming out there before this video, but that is jacked up a few notches now! We fly out a week from today and we're super pumped to get out there. Should be a blast and it'll be a great way to get our spring season started for sure! Ryan can't wait to hunt and hang out with you guys and Morgan, my daughter, looks forward to meeting you guys too.
OTCWill is right-- videos don't any better. Really well done!
Thanks, Chris, looked like a wooden striker, which is about all I can get to really work on metal.
Back in the early 80s, when I hunted with Ray Eye deep in the Missouri Ozarks, we used to stop at a true General Store and get chocolate milk and a Hostess fruit pie during or after hunts. Quite the ritual at the time.
When the seasons get rolling, I might start a thread on such rituals turkey hunters go through...
Woohoo! Ryan and I can't wait! We watched the video and Ryan is super jacked! Really looking forward to the trip out there and that video was the nail in the coffin for us to get really twitchy to leave!
Chris...do you have a special youth and/or archery season, or is that when the regular season opens.
We tried to get a late March opener, but the biologist told us the weather is too cold (like that's predictable in Kansas) and that it would be too early work turkeys. (Insert sigh, and slow, horizontal head shakes.)
