My dad and I took my 8 year old and 6 year old hunting for deer and turkey. Unfortunately, this is the first time in at least 5 years we haven't seen any deer in the morning. Not even a mule deer doe. Must be some kind of conspiracy. However, the big boy got his third turkey and the first for this year. Here are a few pics.

Here are the two predators when we first woke them up.

After the shot. Can you see the turkey?

It's almost as big as he is. Probably 20 pounds live weight.

My 6 year old wanted to get in on the action.

Carrying it back to a spot with shorter grass so we can take some more pics.

The predator, his weapon, and his prey.

Hamming it up a little.

That smile is what it's all about.

We are going back in a day or so to let these boys finish filling our freezer with venison.

Camo, what camo?

They were wearing Dad's and Grandpa's extra jackets. In one pic you can see the younger one still wearing what looks like a camo trench coat.
