    I am a turkey hunting fanatic, have been for years. Naturally, I wanted to introduce turkey hunting to my girls as soon as I thought they were ready. This morning I took my youngest daughter, Amber (7 years old), out for the Indiana Youth Turkey Hunting Season for her first turkey hunt. She has been asking to go turkey hunting ever since I started taking my oldest daughter 4 years ago. At 8:20 this morning she killed her first turkey at 18 steps! 20 lbs. with a 9 inch beard.
    My Dad took my oldest daughter, Katrina (10 years old) for their first hunt together. This is her fourth turkey season. She killed her third turkey at 7:00 this morning with her grandpa. 24 lbs. with a 10 inch beard.
    I couldn't be prouder of my girls!!!!:grin:

    SKIN WHAT YOU KILL :grin:

    No helping on the skinning, dad. :grin:

    Two beautiful ladies learning what family really means. Good for you and Grandpa.

    And congrats to them. A great accomplishment for them both.

    Great job girls. Nothing better than spending time with the kiddos outdoors.

    Congrats and good shooting.

    Fantastic!!

    Those lovely girls of yours will benefit from the experience in ways that you can’t begin to imagine. Priceless – one of the best investments you can make. Well done.

    My oldest son (now 27) started hunting with me (more outdoor adventure than hunting) when he was 6. To this day he recalls every small detail of those early hunts and gets away to “the bush” with his young family every chance he gets – he uses a camera not a rifle now.:thumbsup:

    This is my oldest daughter, Katrina, taken last year. A week ago she took a sting to the lip. To my surprise, she didn't cry. She brushed it off and was like, "Dangit Dad, I just got stung on the lip! But maybe it was God was trying to help me with my chapped lips." What a girl!:thumbsup:

    Excellent! Co-worker here takes his daughters out too..they got one yesterday also. I think they hunted Switzerland county. You have inspired me to go ahead and buy the smaller bee jacket for my daughters. Sounds like your raising them to be strong independent gals. Our girls are ladies but we're raising them to take care of themselves also.

    Great photo's Dave! You can't beat time spent in the field with your kids, especially when they can put food on the table! :thumbsup:

    Great pictures, memories of hunting with father and grandfather will last forever.
    Looks like Dave is doing a great job raising a new generation of huntresses/beekeepers.
    Congratulations :thumbsup:
