My wife killed her first turkey on the OTC hunt last year, so that was cool. We never could get the big tom we named "Turkzilla!" Killed a couple with the scattergun, but I'm gonna try to get it done with a bow for the first time this year.
For what unit? We drew southern region with no points.

The only people who didn't draw with 4 points last year were those applying for the CWMU hunt (must be a dang good one, by the way, to be drawing at 10 points). Either that, or they applied as a group with hunters who had fewer points.

While turkeys really do make a fun spring hunt,
They are no were close to what the big game hunts offer.
Or even the spring bear hunts running at the same time,

This year, The boys and I all drew Southern LE turkey permits,
and the kids absolutely love hunting them, so we'll go. have fun.
But part of me wishes we were spring bear hunting this year instead .

I've never been bear hunting but it does interest me, I don't want to put in for a tag in Utah/spend the money to travel and kill them. I'm with you I've killed/been apart of killing 30 or so turkeys. Some of my friends get really excited for turkey camp, but the last couple years I've been more excited to help friends kill there first bird etc, and with turkeys it's not if you'll kill one it's when, they're smart but at the end of the day they are still just an oversized chicken, there habits and there lack of sense of smell, will get themselves killed. But they are a good cure for cabin fever! I'm sure your boys are going to stack some toms up this spring! Good Luck!

I'm headed home to hunt Easter weekend. Should be a good warm up for Utah, birds have been on fire back there.

I haven't met a serious turkey hunter out here yet, but I am sure they exist!

What do you mean, I know of at least three other guys right here on this forum alone that are "serious" turkey hunters. And that's not even countin the boys that think hidin in a ground blind is real turkey huntin. I will admit that the numbers are down, six fellers from this forum dropped out this year alone 'cause it's just to boring, and two others quit 'cause they didn't draw for the all important LE tag... but hopefully we can pick up a couple new guys to help take up the slack.
