Camera Corner: Terrific Turkey Hunting Snapshots

Game & Fish's popular Camera Corner is where readers share their photos from successful trips in the field or on the water.

With wild turkey hunting opening this month in many states in the country, it seems like a good time to share some reader-submitted photos of successful trips into the woods (information supplied by readers):

Father-Son Turkeys

I have never hunted turkeys before but my 12 year old son now has his hunting license and i thought it would be a fun adventure for us to go on a turkey hunt together. We both got our first ever turkey on the same morning! I have never had so much fun as Indid hunting with my son. Oh, and Tommy's bird was bigger than dad's!

Turkey Double

I went with my son opening day of turkey season 2016 to call for him from my Double Bull Blind. These two Toms landed on the other end of the field we had set up on. When they both came to my calling and decoys, my son suggested we both try to shoot. We shot simultaneously got them both. They both they 10 inch beards. Don't think I will ever have a more exciting Turkey harvest!
