She is a very happy 8 year old

What a wonderful day. Started out with one hen walking right passed us at 6:30. Then at 7:00 Had a mature bird sneak in and she could not get a good shot. About 7:30 a couple jakes and a nice long beard came in. They decided to sneak off with no shot, but when I called I had a hen answer and she came right in followed by the gobblers. Then one of them saw something and I told her to shoot when she is ready since they where in range. She told me to quit shaking, I think i was just excited as her. B<span style="font-weight: bold">OOM</span> she starts screaming and said "wow that hurt a little (first time with the 3" Magnums, but not that bad because <span style="font-weight: bold">I just shot a turkey</span>!! She was extatic the whole walk out and ride home. All the practice shooting she has done the last couple years payed off with her first bird.
