April 27: Forrest Bonin

When I checked the draw results for Iowa nonresident spring turkey this year and saw that I was successful, I couldn't have been more excited! Terry and I made the trip up to Mark's a few days ago and I was lucky enough to be up to bat first.

Our first morning there we woke up to heavy fog, so we waited for it to lift and headed out. We soon found 5 big gobblers strutting on a hill. After making a big loop around them, we were able to use some fans to crawl across a big open field and get close. With Wade and Perry filming and Mark calling, a longboard soon broke off from the flock and came rolling right to us.

After letting Mark get him to gobble in our face one last time I put the Winchester SX4/Longbeard XR combo to work and the celebration was on. Having a big group of great friends there for the whole experience made it just that much better! Im already looking forward to the next time the crew is together in a hunting camp!!
