The Fruits of Neverland

The first fruit of Neverland

Last Monday, "Star Wars Days" (May the fourth), Neverland beared its first fruit in the form of a twenty pound gobbler with a nice long beard that was harvested by my friend Del Whitman from the Cedar Clump.

Since I was not present at the event (due to work, which many times gets in the way of my hunting, but in the other hand really pays for my hobbies and everything else), I will ask Del to eventually provide the details, but knowing Del he probably used a 3 1/2" 12 gauge shell with a payload equivalent to a WWI Shrapnel 60 pound grenade.

While the turkeys like Del, they clearly don't love me. On Monday evening and yesterday (Saturday) morning I spent several desolated hours waiting for Mr. Meleagris gallopavo but ended both days literally empty handed.

Let's see what next weekend reserves to me!
