My Nephews First Turkey Hunt

Post by Phillyarcher » Thu May 04, 2017 5:21 pm

I signed my nephew up for the NWTF chapter Tri County Longbeards first annual youth hunt in New Jersey. I met a couple of great guys that morning and we went into the field. The hunt was filmed by Main Frame Media. Joe did an excellent job and a Kyle was a awesome caller. We set up twice and the third set up was the charm. Ryan shot his first bird and this was his first time in the Turkey woods. You can check out the video on Main Frame Media site it's called Hooked or on Hooked A Ryan Markee Hunt.and His Gobbler was 17 1/2 pounds 3/4 inch Spurs and 11 inch beard. It's great to get the youth into the sport we love doing and passing on our knowledge. It was a great hunt. I tried down loading a pic but was not able too. I have him out shooting the crossbow and he is doing pretty good.
