    I have done the opposite. Been turkey hunting, set my gun against a tree when I started finding mushrooms. Got to hunting mushrooms and before I realized it was about 200 yards from gun, yeah, one gobbled between me and my gun.

    Pro tip: Never walk away from your gun in the woods.

    If you leave a crossbow unattended, it's liable to wipe out all the turks on your farm.

    I'd like to travel to turkey hunt just to much going on that time of year ... Hate to think any crappie would get away while I was gone !

    Hopefully take my mom out again. She killed her first bird last year at age 72! (My avatar pic)
    I will probably take some other family/friends out also

    Kansas, hunt in the morning and catch white bass in the afternoon and locate turkeys while wading the river...

    After shed hunting and scouting a bunch and running cams I should have the birds pinpointed haha. I'm picking up lots of cobblers on my cams lately and got a few named and ready to shoot

    KS, probably Iowa, maybe MO. 6 year old says he wants to shoot one, so if that remains true then my plans don’t really matter and we will plan everything for a solid youth outing or two.

    Start off with my 13 yo son and missouri youth season, head out April 11th for Nebraska youth season with him, adult season opens on that Saturday, then back to Missouri for opener. The last 3 years, it' worked out good. 20170415_162532.jpg
