    <P>We made our anual turkey trip down to southern Ohio again this year. The youth hunts were the highlight of our trip. My brother's 8 yr old son took a jake on the first morning of the youth hunt. My son and I didn't even get close to any gobbles that morning. We decided to hunt a different hill for the afternoon hunt. At our second set-up Ty said he could hear something rustling the leaves, then he saw 2 turks working up the hillside. They stopped a little short, so one more yelp brought both jakes right into the decoys. After what seemed like an hour, Ty had a clear shot and cleanly killed the larger of the 2. Ended up being 14 lbs with a 4 inch beard. <IMG src="http://www.websitetoolbox.com/images/boards/smilies/thumb.gif" align=absMiddle border=0><IMG src="http://www.websitetoolbox.com/images/boards/smilies/biggrin.gif" align=absMiddle border=0><IMG src="http://www.websitetoolbox.com/images/boards/smilies/biggrin.gif" align=absMiddle border=0><IMG src="http://www.websitetoolbox.com/images/boards/smilies/biggrin.gif" align=absMiddle border=0></P>

    <P>Love to hear about young ones getting in on the action. Nothing like the satisfaction of a&nbsp;great harvest&nbsp;as a young boy.</P>
