Arizona Youth Turkey Hunt
Christian (12) and James (10) Broadus tagged these 2 nice toms on the second day of their turkey hunt. We started out Friday morning and spent the day trying to locate a tom without any success. Saturday we went out knowing we only had a couple of hours as one of the boys had a baseball game that afternoon. Not really expecting much, we walked up a hill with the idea of just sitting for few hours. Without giving a locater call a tom gobbled about 200 yards out, we moved into the tree line and set up the decoys. We could see the turkeys way out. On the first call they turned and came trotting to us. The boys had not been able to sit still the day before (their first real hunt) but now with turkeys in sight they were frozen. It took about 15 minutes for the birds to get to us. They came in perfect for a double shot from the 20 ga. shotguns. They had their turkeys and a great story.
