We're ready for turkey time - are you?
Thanks to our own Anthony Dickson and Steve Shore of the Hitmen “Brotherhood of the Hunt” TV show, our first Seminar, “The Finer Points of Turkey Hunting” was a great success. More than 35 hunters and future hunters attended and picked up some excellent advice from the experts. I think they also enjoyed the goodies from the Burford Bakeshop!!!
Turkey hunting in the spring requires learning to call birds on several different devices. This time of year, the store is alive with the sounds of turkey calls! Gunner, Kate, and the Chihuahuas have gotten so used to the sounds of calling turkeys that they don’t even bother to bark. Coaching is always our pleasure and whatever type of call, decoy, or blind you want to use, we can help you get the most from them for your successful hunt.
This is the time of year when I get up earlier than usual to put the scale out front of the store by 9 am and be ready to weigh the first bird of the morning. It is always exciting but especially so for someone bringing in their first wild turkey to be entered into the Triggers and Bows Wild Turkey Contest. Each year we take photos of every contestant, this year the photos can be viewed on our website and Facebook page! Use it to show off your turkey!
The rules haven’t changed in 10 or 11 years. The prizes have! This year first prize for the highest scored bird is a $500.00 gift card. Second prize of a $250.00 gift card is for the lowest scored bird and third prize, also a $250.00 gift card, is a random draw and all entrants have a chance to win whether or not they harvested a wild turkey. These gift cards can be used on anything sold in our store including range memberships.
As usual we will have weekly prizes but all that info is already on our website. Here in the store we just look forward to seeing which hunters will come in and what the largest and smallest scoring bird will be each day.
The end of April and all of May are exciting times at Triggers and Bows and we are all looking forward to seeing what your hunt will produce and who will win the Grand Prize of $500.00 gift card.
Good luck and great hunting from all of us here.
