Re: Backpacking Turkey Success!!!

That's awesome, hawkeye270! Coincidentally, I was talking with a guy this past weekend (after my own unsuccessful hunt - found tracks, but nothing standing in them...) About an area he knows to hold birds, but it is about 3 miles from any road. Got me wondering if anyone has ever "packed in" for a turkey hunt? Imagine my surprise to read your story the next day! Sometimes, if they can't come to the hunt, you have to take the hunt to them! Congrats! Great story and great bird!
