    Well I went to another Turkey Shoot. Even took my youngest son (17yrs.old) with me. There was about 40 contestants at this particular Turkey Shoot. Normal rules nothing fancy. The target is a gray area inside a turkey's head & neck. Most pellet holes in the gray area wins that match, 10 matches total. Winners of a match enters the trophy match. My son & I are sharing my Ol' Faithful 870 Remington. My son wins the first match. :) I win the third match. My son & I played in a 10 matches. My son also wins the 10th match. So we're both in the trophy match with 5 other shooters, 7 altogether. Well, the picture of my son below shows the final results.

    The man to the left of my son is the range owner/ organizer of the turkey shoot. Ironic that this is my son's first Turkey Shoot. So, we're driving home and my son asks, "Dad can you bring me to the next Turkey Shoot?" I say, "NO WAY!! you make the competition too stiff." :p

    Days like this makes life all seem worth while.
    What's better than me winning a Turkey Shoot is when my son wins it.
    This has been the best Turkey Shoot I've been to ever...and I have been to a lot of fun, good times turkey shoots.

    Well pass along a hearty "CONGRATULATIONS!" to that young man for me. :)

    Now you just need to tell him -- "From here on out, it's your responsibility to bring home the bacon!" ;)

    No pressure...... :D

    Congratulations to your son, job well done!

    ...and I know that stinging feeling of being bested by your son. My eleven year old does it to me pretty often lately. I'd like to think it's because I taught him well, but end up admitting he's just better than I am.
