Youth Turkey Hunting

Yesterday I took my oldest daughter, Raleigh (11), turkey hunting after church.  It was really important to me that she be able to harvest her first turkey.  Her patience paid off, she had a clean kill at 19 yards.  Raleigh used a 20 gauge shotgun loaded with 7 ½ shot.  (I like these lighter loads when taking a youth hunting so they don’t become fearful of the recoil.)
