Default Opening day in NH

Well Turkey season was over for me at 5:50 this morning
Most exciting hunt I have ever had
almost Scored a Triple although we did get 3 birds My Brother In-law, My best Friend & I were done in less then an hour Shot mine at 5:39 My Newbies (First Bird for both, First season for my best friend & second for my In-Law) they shot their's at 5:50 & 5:50 & 30 sec.
I was worn out doing all the calling switching from the slate to the box to the Diaphragm but the Turkey's kept coming none were anything to write home about but the excitement of this hunt & the joy in their eyes were This is why I hunt not the Kill but the joy of friendship, bonding & to see the excitement of a new hunter that didn't know what to expect.
We do not have a ton of birds in my area so this was extra special & now they think I am the world's best caller. I told them if they want a Turkey next year they are going to have to Pay a guide fee anyone know how much a guide makes
Just thought I would share a quick version of the hunt & My most memorable hunt to date
