As told by Zach himself:

It was the 2nd day of turkey youth in Ohio when I shot my tom. The day before me, Jarod Hawkins, Jarod(my brother), Dad (Ben Rising) and Kenny Bevans went out. My brother shot his bird later that day. You can read his story on here too. Back to my story, Me, dad and Kenny tried to go back after a turkey(the one Jarrod didn't get a shot at) that was roosting behind our house, but ended up he had roosted on another piece of property next to ours that we had permission to hunt. So we jumped on the buggy and drove down the road. When we got over there and started calling we realized that there was atleast 3 birds and they were across a county road!! We called some more and they got all fired up and started heading our way. We hurried up and sat down.

Just a couple of minutes after we sat down a hen went across a path. Once the toms got close they were really fired up. Problem was they were 30yds in front of me with really thick brush so I couldn't see a thing. They gobbled on and off for atleast 20min. Then finally 2 birds came out and I was able to shoot the largest one. The birds that were with him ran away but started gobbling anyway. I would have to say that this hunt wuld be one of the most memorable hunts I've been on except for my first bird which was also while hunting with dad. Thanks for all the great memories Dad!!
