I thought I'd post one last update on this since the turkey hunt has ended.
I took the 12 year old out for one last weekend. In short we had a good weekend. We went out and did quite a bit of hiking to see if we could figure out what elevation/area the birds were hanging out at. I got out the crow and owl calls along with the turkey calls but we never saw a bird all weekend. We saw some elk and deer and along with some beuatiful country. I noticed the daughter was getting more and more inquisitive about her surroundings and I was all too happy to teach her what ever she was willing to absorb about the outdoors.
In short it was a good weekend but the 2010 Utah general turkey hunt ended without a bird for the daughter or myself. Next year we'll put in for a limited entry tag and make another run at it.
For most on here there is a dream trip floating up around in their heads but there is a question of how to pay for it. This has been a problem for all hunters that wish for that elusive moose, bear, goat, sheep, elk, deer, or any other hunt where you are required to hire a guide or you choose to hire one for that hunt of a lifetime.
First off I am not a financial planner I am just a hunter that learned a long time ago that even with a great job there are going to be some...
