As most of you remember last year Ryan came out and scored big here in Cali... well here is his Cali trip and hunt with joe and I for you to enjoy. Big thanks to Brent (passthru) for editing this. In less then two days we'll be doing the same for halfpint on another junior hunt. Hope you all like it!

Awesome job Ryan! Man that bird was a dinosaur! Love it! Kia and I are sitting in the airport in Dallas now on our way! Great video Chris and Joe! Hopefully the next future of hunting does as well as Ryan:)

Great video and even better shot on your bird Ryan! What a bird, too!

I would have liked to have seen all of you guys crawling out of that blind. It probably looked like one of those clown cars at the circus!

16-Mar-17
Good lord! That bird was walking around with knifes! Great video.

t-roy... I was thinking the same thing. That's a lot of folks smashed in one blind. lol

Great memories. Let's do this again in 2 days shall we :)

From: Rut Nut

Wow! Great job to all involved! : ) And GREAT shot!

I was surprised at how that arrow seemed to bounce off the neck! Evidently did a great job! Just didn't expect it to react that way.

Rut nut, it sliced the birds jugular wide open and he bled out fairly quickly. Thanks everyone!

Joe and Chris, you guys are doing an awesome thing in putting this on. congrats to all that are involved. Giving of yourself for others, what better is there! Really looking forward to this year's updates and Kia's adventure! Best of luck to all!

From: Scoot

Huge props is right John! What an amazing opportunity the guys provided for a young boy. Most importantly to me it was MY young boy. :)

I can't say how appreciative we are still. I'm sure Justin and Kia will have a similar wonderful experience with Chris and Joe. Ryan and I are excited to get a text on Saturday sometime with some more good news.

Thanks again Chris and Joe. Thanks very much to Brent for his great work in the video too. Memories we'll have with us for the rest of our lives.

That's awesome!! Great shot Ryan! What a great thing you guys are doing for young hunters! Scott...I guess you are an OK Dad... ;)

Great video and hunt. Ryan hit him right on the button. That is one of those instances with a Bullhead in if his shot was 1" left or right it would have been even more devastating as it would have been all blade hitting the bird.

Awesome job guys! Ryan is a killer!

From: Scoot
16-Mar-17
Rut Nut, Bowfreak and Chris nailed it regarding the shot. His left-right aim was absolutely perfect. Almost too good as the "button" in the center of the bullhead centerpunched his neck and it stopped the shot dead. With more pounds behind the shot it probably wouldn't have done that. He also hit towards the base of the neck rather than up higher and I'm sure that was part of the final equation too.

Bullheaded...wow! Excellent job, Ryan...nice video guys!

Best of Luck, Jeff

Congrats! What an awesome experience for a young hunter & dad.

Awesome work to the young man! Kudos to the guys and dad who put this hunt together for him. You guys rock.

Lastly.... that ranch setting for a turkey hunt is beautiful!! The rolling hills with cows in the pasture reminds me of home. Hunting with decoys and curious cows in the area can sometimes be a pain in the butt, though none the less entertaining.
