Hey Guys:

New to the forum. Our families first pup (PP) will be coming home in early July. I've done some bird hunting as a youngster, but pretty new to training a pointer. I've been reading through the posts and tons of great info here, looking forward to learning more. Saw this thread as a place to introduce myself.

My oldest boy (8) Joey killed his first Turk here in Northwest PA this year. We did not seal the deal on the youth day, but were able to make it happen on the regular first day April 27th. Was an awesome hunt with birds roosted all around us, they pitched down right in front and put on a show. Ended up not being able to get a shot until they moved off to our right. Was able to re-position our sitting direction without getting picked off and Joey shot this jake at 35 yds with the 870 youth 20 ga. The Federal TSS #9 turkey ammo is pretty awesome stuff.

Thanks ahead for having us on the forum.

Tony

We appreciate all the kind words guys.

It's a really neat thing that PA has done with the youth hunting program.

Feel very lucky that we have the opportunities that we do.

We are very excited about the new pup and we'll keep you guys posted when he comes.

Thanks again the comments and for the welcome.

I almost had an English setter fly out the window of the Ford yesterday when driving through the backcountry. Tom strutting and gobbling in a clearing. Jake hanging on the outskirts. Misty the setter tried her best to fly out the rolled down window until I caught her tail.
