Camp Chef Snapshot of the Week – 4/27/2013

[CG :2 LinePaul Salin”Hunting buddy for life”]
We kick it off with a successful turkey hunt for Paul and his son Scott. Paul tells us that they had to belly crawl for 100 feet to close the distance on 15 turkeys to get a shot. Paul’s persistent calling finally got this tom to stick his head around a bush and Scott did the rest. Paul says Scott has never been to excited about hunting, but because of this experience, Paul now has a hunting buddy for life.

Steve got a call ten days before the hunt telling him that someone had turned in their tag and he was next in line. So with never hunting turkey before he decided to give it a shot! Steve says he decoyed this tom to within 15 yards, it turned out to be one of the best hunting experiences he’s ever had.
