Who gets the first shot?

So an interesting situation has arose between my father-in-law and I. He introduced to me hunting about 9 months ago for deer season. Now with turkey season coming up, I have secured us some prime real estate on some family land... that I had to convince my uncle to let us hunt. Who gets dibs on the first shot when we go out, him or I?

Re: Who gets the first shot?

If it were me and my honey hole or family ground I might have to just say I get the first shot however depending on how much you like him and how in debted you feel about the introduction to hunting he might get the first shot. Plus I assume you are sharing a bed with his daughter and he has not killed you yet again maybe he get the first shot.

In similar situations I share with friends we usually sit side by side on the same tree and which ever side the turkey comes in on is the shooter.

Rock, Paper, Scissors seems like it is the only fair way.

Good Luck making the right choice!!!!!

Re: Who gets the first shot?

...heres somthing my buddies and i used to do if there was 4 of us.
Morning roost set up----flip of coin..there was usually on 2 of us in the morning.
When we met after morn set up....and were cutting and running...it was whoever got the bird to gobble.....and 9/10..it was me
After 1 weekend in NY...all my buddies had a Quakerboy Mini boat paddle by the following weekend ...just something fun.

...if the FIL really likes you...he'll let you shoot the first one
