I've always wanted to take a picture with a turkey on those rocks. It's out at me and cotty's sportsmans club. I have also been trying to teach my dad how to take good harvest pics. Not showing too much above the head, removing the weeds from the picture, cool backgrounds, and taking lower angle photos. I think I may make an outdoor photographer out of him after all. It definitely doesn't look like Ohio except for the powerline and the big rolling hill.

Checking in for Team 9. Youth bonus points for my son, killed this 22lb bird on April 21.

Sorry about the crappy pictures....camera is shit. The white thing around the neck is the paper tag.
