Patrick Reese, 14, of Roswell, enjoyed an epic hunt on March 16 with his father and guide Paul Brown. Four gobblers were henned up in a field 300 yards away, but the expert calling kept the birds interested. Finally after over an hour, the birds sprinted toward the decoys and began attacking them. Patrick calmed his nerves while he waited for the birds to move far enough away to avoid shooting the decoys. Then he proved his marksmanship skill with an excellent shot on a 20-pounder to harvest his first turkey.
Riley Howard, 13, of Rutledge, took advantage of the youth season and killed this Walton County tom.
