  • Spring Turkey - Kansas

    Earlier this Spring fellow Posse member Scott Carpenter asked if I would be interested in joining him on a trip to the Midwest for turkeys and some shed hunting. I worked out the details and it was time to leave before I knew it. Scott picked me up after work and we were on our way with 19 hours of driving ahead of us. After driving all night and most of the next day, we pulled in at Scott’s… read more »

Toby & Ken had us out there a few years ago and we had a blast! That was the year we had a pile of Jakes molesting our decoys and I shot one off of the hen decoy (Hazel) with my shotgun!! Well, since then I have still been trying to finish my turkey… read more »
