I was finally able to make the trip out west with a group of buddies. We had this trip planned for over a year now. We hunted the pine ridge and I was able to tag this big tom on the second day of our trip!
It's my first Merriams and definitely the most beautiful place I have chased turkeys. One of the other guys also took a bird on the same day. Unfortunately we had to pack up camp early due to bad weather. It was still a great trip and awesome experience!
