Made a mistake lately?
As I mentioned yesterday, I was born with a head full of wonderfully curly hair and I was often compared to Shirley Temple as a child. I had no idea who Shirley Temple was since I was a toddler, but I always said “thank you” as my mother taught me. One day, my dad and I were shopping together and I saw a display of Shirley Temple videos. I got all excited and ran up to the videos and grabbed one. I turned around and yelled out to my dad in my loud two-year-old voice, “Look, Daddy! They made a movie about me!” He bought me three of them because I was so adorable.

One of the most enjoyable parts of turkey hunting is just watching the action. It’s not unusual for a gobbler and a few hens to be out of reach for a well-placed shotgun shot but well within a comfortable eyeshot. Not only do you get to see a big tom as he struts and sways but you get to also watch all of the subplots that surround the main story. One of the most entertaining shows happens when the jakes show up. These teenage males gain confidence when they’re with other jakes and they will gang up on an older bird but when by themselves they know they had better keep well away from the action.
