Great write up and pics as always Hal. Looks like you have having a great year. I am beyond ready to get going here, but still need to wait for a couple weeks.

Had a nice Western hunt this week.

Killed a double ...



And then ended my season with a beautiful UT bird.



Been a great spring for finding eager working birds. Carried a gun eight days and toted six turkeys back to the truck. I'm very thankful for another year of wonderful memories made!
