Turkey Thumpers: Gabbie’s Georgia Bird – Season 2 – Webisode 10

Monday, April 30th, 2012

This is the last in a 3 part series where Ms. Gabbie Campbell has been proving how good a turkey thumpers she is becoming. They returned from Kansas and decided to give Georgia another try. They had a score to settle with these GA gobblers. Chuck roosted a gobbler and they sneaked back in the field at 10:00 pm to put a tent up. Then the next morning, the gobbler came from behind the tent following a hen. Not the best video due to how the hunt unfolded, but still a good hunt and great shot by Gabbie. Watch this webisode to see for yourself.

Chuck and his 12 year old daughter, Gabbie, have been hunting hard in both Florida and Georgia but were coming up short.

Turkey Thumpers: Bill V and the Stuck Up Gobbler – Season 2 – Webisode 7

Monday, April 16th, 2012

Now every year I enjoy hunting with my good friend Bill Vincent. I took him 2 years ago to get his first turkey and we have been going ever since. You can watch that hunt here. This year he came up and we had a hard time getting a mature bird in gun range during the first few days. I always joke with him that the years he kills a nice buck, he normally gets a turkey. Last year he did not get a buck, plus the weather was bad during turkey season and the gobblers were all henned up.

Turkey Thumpers: Before the Rain – Season 2 – Webisode 6

Thursday, April 12th, 2012

Everyone had gone home from our lease in Georgia but me, and I thought I would try to hunt these gobblers that have been giving us a hard time. We knew where they were traveling before roosting and put a tent there. I was sitting in the tent watching a rain storm coming in on the radar on my cell phone and trying to decide when I needed to get out so not to get wet. Then a neighbor shot a rifle and I heard a turkey gobble. I immediately started calling to him (which turned out to be 3 gobblers). Watch the video to see what happened next.

Turkey Thumpers: Double Me Darn – Season 2 – Webisode 5

Monday, April 9th, 2012

Well, this is quite a story. I wanted my father and myself to get a double turkey kill if we had the opportunity. This opportunity did present itself, but due to some miscommunication it went from a control organized 2 hunters 2 shots 2 kills, to instead a reenactment of the shoot out at the OK Corral. Watch this video and see how it unfolds and listen closely to the communication between us.

Turkey Thumpers: The Stare Gobbler – Season 2 – Webisode 4

Thursday, April 5th, 2012

Now we hunted a whole week in Mississippi and had no luck. The birds were henned up and we even had a turkey shot out from us on a neighbor’s properties. So when we got to Georgia we had a lot of pent up energy when this gobbler came in. He never got excited at the decoys but instead just stared at our Hazel Creek Jake decoys. I can not say the same for my father. He got excited and rushed his shot, as you can see in this video. He still got enough load into the gobbler were we could get him. Watch this video to see what happens.

Turkey Thumpers: Jake Comedy – Season 2 – Webisode 3

Monday, April 2nd, 2012

While turkey hunting on our lease in Georgia, we had 2 separate encounters with Jakes and our Hazel Creek decoys. Both of these encounters were funny and I thought I would upload the video for you guys to enjoy.
