First of all, Happy Mother’s Day to all you moms out there!

My youngest son and I got up at 3:45 this morning and headed over to a friend’s farm for some turkey hunting.

Here’s my son Jonpatrick with a big Tom that our friend shot from the same blind we were in at about 9 this morning (meaning that we could have slept until 7:30 after all — we’d been in the blind since 5:45 a.m.)

We saw plenty of hens before that, but this was the first male that came along (that my son could get in close to the decoys with the turkey call). And we were even back home in time to make a Mother’s Day brunch!

I think I need a nap though.

Again, Happy Mothers Day, moms!
