John Ross Shoots First Turkey with Dad

Bob Thompson is an avid bird hunter, he sent in this great hunting story about an exciting turkey hunt with his 14 year old son, John Ross. Congrats to John Ross on taking his first turkey!

We called in 13 birds all together, they came to our decoys across an open grass filed about 300 yards away. Seven jakes and 6 hens. I wish I would of videotaped the hunt. John Ross shot his at 7:45 am and several birds flew and ran, but 5 jakes stood around and within two minutes I was able to take my shot. I was not worried about killing a double, but I told John Ross before they got to us to hold still after he shot so that if they did not run off I would go ahead and take one as well. I shot one last year and had three birds come in together. After I shot my bird, I watched the other two and started making mouth calls to see their reaction. They came back to the decoy and dead turkey and started gobbling again. It’s great when a plan comes together!
