My step dad and I got our first “double”. After spending 5 LOOONNGGG days in Alabama and only hearing one gobbler, we decided to try our luck in Tennessee. We battled some wet weather but it finally quit long enough for us to get some hunting in. We got on three birds at about 3pm. They put on a great show and gobbled several times for us.

I’ve shot a few jakes and I’ve passes on a few, but since my wife is 8 months pregnant and I’m not sure if I’ll get to do any hunting here in Arkansas this year,…..well I decided to shoot one while I had the chance. My step dad shot one of the other ones and we got our first double. It was a great hunt and another great memory.

BTW, I had fried turkey breast, biscuits and gravy…. twice last week. :wink:

It doesn't get any better'n that....my dad passed away in1971, the year after I came home from Nam...we never went Turkey hunting. But my father-in-law became a friend to me....like a father, and we have made doubles like this, three times, and we always grin at each other like a couple of turkey hunting fools, while having a huge handshake! He's 90 now and probly wont go with me anymore, but it won't be because I didn't ask! Great experience, thanks for the pics, give your Dad a big hug:wink: .......~john:thumb:
