I’m leaving Friday morning for an adventure I’ve wanted to do for years. Georgia to OK to KS to NE to SD and close it out in WY. Hoping to kill a Rio and Merriam toward my slam attempt. I have Easterns. For those who are Believers I would appreciate a prayer or two. I have PTSD and have been so off kilter mentally that I had called it off as recently as a week ago. Doc has changed my meds and I’m feeling good enough to give it a go....determined that Satan isn’t going to steal my joy! I’ll keep y’all posted. Retired from DOD 6 weeks ago and have dubbed it the Retirement Turkey Tour, lol. Thanks and God bless! Chief ~

Jasper! Prayers for peace in your mind and in your soul. That you will enjoy this tour and find peace and joy at the end of it.

Perhaps tying into those here that are truly pulling for you by posting regular updates will help maintain focus and keep the bad man at bay. Consider us your emotional support animals. lol

Post pics and notes from the tour. We're with you

Good for you! Retirement ISN'T overrated. Hopefully the weather in WY will cooperate for you in May. I've encountered 14" of snow on a turkey hunt then. Be safe!

Might I suggest naming it the "Retirement turkey hunting tour" lest some get the individual retiring confused with the goal of the hunt

Good luck man ,sounds like a great time, you should be dialed in pretty good with that much turkey hunting.The different landscapes and terrains will be cool to see, the diversity and changing scenery will be a challenge too. Post pics if you get time.

Go get them well you can. I did the same thing a few years ago when I retired. Florida, Georgia. Alabama, Texas, New Mexico, Then the next year Michigan, Kansas, Kentucky,Iowa, Nebraska, South Dakota, Wyoming and Montana . What a blast. Glad I did because now the pandemic hit , diagnosed with cancer and several ops and radition now finally starting to feel better but border still closed so can't go . So like I said go for it now as you never know what the future holds !!

Jon, congrats on a great Rio. I am silently watching your adventure on FB while locked away in FB JAIL (cry baby libs).

Whgen you get to WY let me know. I will drive across the state to help you out if needed. I am not going to get much turkey hunting in this year, which is making me sad. This weekend is 4H and Baseball, Next weekend is 4h and Shed hunting, etc.

There are no turkeys by my place in Lander, but if need a layover, hot meal or shower we have room. Heck maybe you tag out early and we can go shed hunt a few days...

Good luck and enjoy the much deserved time away...
