Very proud to show you guys Kristin's CA opening day gobbler. She made a great 18 yard quartering away shot on him, he didn't make it 30 yards before being down for the count. Shot with a 75 grain 3 blade Muzzy. Not only was this her first turkey, but also her first archery kill. It was awesome to see her excitement... hands shaking and her heart pounding out of her chest. It was really cool. I also got a bird a little while later on. Kristin's tom had a 9" beard, and mine had an 8 3/4 incher on him.

Congrats to you and your girlfriend Todd!

Apparently there was a lot of that going on this weekend as my girlfriend Kim knocked her first bird down as well.

Good stuff. Congrats! I bet they both have the fever now! It's cool when you get to experience a hunt together. Nothing better IMO.

Nice DW! Spring is in the air my friend. What decoys are those? They look way better than my flock.
