It's Turkey Time!!!

Holy busy life it has been.  This is my disclaimer as to why I have been absent lately on the blog.  There has been so much going on out there in the Ag world and so much to talk about such as the huge debacle on Lean Finely Texture Beef that the media likes to refer to as "pink slime" and last weekend was Michigan Beef Expo.  So Monday you will get to hear my rant on LFTB and I'm sure that all of you are BEYOND excited....I can tell!  But until then.........

It's that time of year again....no not Thanksgiving but opening day of Turkey Season!!  I am about to go on my first turkey hunt and I am beyond excited!!!  I want nothing more than for that huge tom to come walking in front of me and you better believe I'm gonna get that baby mounted.

So this past weekend we went out practicing shooting and learning all the aspects of the hunt.  So I was given a Benelli 12 gauge semi auto to shoot and was only told it may have a LITTLE kick.....ha! No it had a MAJOR kick.  Pretty sure I thought it broke my shoulder, jaw, and eardrum all at the same time.  But after a couple shots it didn't hurt that bad.  So not to brag but my first two shots nailed the bird...

So after that they taught me how to call a turkey.  This is quite different then I ever imagined.  I've been goose hunting and so I thought you would have a turkey call like how you call geese.  Negative you use this pencil looking thing on a slate.  It was quite intriguing to learn.

So that was my weekend and April 23 can't come soon enough!!!
