Wish the had youth waders when my boys were young.
Her 5th trip... She said, "I don't know if I will go again, after I get one, but I am going to get one this season Dad... I have too much time invested. The morning in question, no birds on the roost near us... Hens were quiet... Then all hell broke loose after a bit of subtle calling. Had birds coming in from behind, birds coming in from the left, and a trio of toms headed right at us... All gobbling. The two behind us were close, but behind a barrier... Three coming right at us booked as the two from behind us showed themselves in good range.
Me: Kierra, shoot when you can.
As the birdst start to walk off
Kierra: which one?
Me THE CLOSEST ONE!
Kierra :"BAM! and done goes a bird!
Me; lays back and starts to breath, before getting my whitts and running to the down bird. They were at 20 when I initially encourage her to shoot, and she killed that bird at 35... I'll have take heart medication when I take the younger Saidee on her first trip.

Won't be long and these will be doing the shooting.
What a pleasure and great change of pace for me to be introducing them . All the questions and wonder of what's happening , cheering the dog on and helping with the work.
It's rejuvenated me , used to feel like work at times , not this year!
I'm going to have to spend some time going back through this thread, thanks to all for getting them out .
Sorry it likes like double posted a couple.
