Idaho turkey

Gobble gobble
Spring season starts today.
I will however not get a chance tell Friday.
This year will be my first bird hunt with my new English fowler that I posted in the black powder section
I JUST CAN’T SLEEP!!!!!!
Well anyway there’s 6 going right now in our camp and 3 lodges .We are trying to have a primitive BP hunt but a couple of the new guys aren’t quite up to par yet so we are letting them come with regular shotguns, but having some of the pre1840 outfit is a must, well ok we would like you to bring LOL
The invitation is open to all who read this and if you wish to come we would love to have ya
Directions will be given if you ask.
OH we will be hunting on the Idaho /Oregon boarder just north of weiser Idaho which is 70 miles north of Boise. I would really like to meet any of you folks who might be able to make it.

Idaho turkey

Whelp!
I just got back and it was a BLAST!!!!! We had rain, snow, sun, wind and we hunted them hard, every morning they would be back just above camp.
We chased birds all 3 days and filled 3 tags out of 9 guys that showed up. 2 birds where taken with 62 cal smooth bore flintlocks and one with a 12-gage center fire. I think I will have to make a green hunting frock; I could get the hens into range but not the toms.
This morning I had 5 set-ups in less the 3 hours there was birds everywhere
Almost as fun as elk hunting .................... Almost
