    I had scouted turkeys for a week in hopes that my son, daughter and I could score a triple on a nearby private parcel we had permission to hunt.

    There were several hens and nine jakes passing through daily. But...sometimes they showed up at 9am, sometimes noonish, other times not until mid to late afternoon.

    Yesterday was the day to try. Taking no chances, we were set up at 5:45am.

    Unfortunately, my 12 year old daughter got cold and bored by 8:30am and bailed to the truck to call mom for an extraction.

    Understanding we might be in for a long sit, my son passed the time by napping.

    The birds showed up at about 10:30am. Four hens and a gang of jakes. The boss hen gave our DSD lookout hen a good thrashing as a couple jakes strutted nearby. Meanwhile my son and I picked a out couple shortbeards to aim at. The countdown commenced...3, 2, 1, boom! I guess a double will have to do.

    Turkey noodle soup for dinner tonight.
