It seems like Chasing Spring brings rain and wind with us everywhere we go. I arrived in EL Dorado for the Kansas Governor’s One Shot Turkey hunt in a down pour of rain, hail and high winds. But it didn’t matter. I had plenty of turkeys to hunt and friends to meet, like Bass Pro Shops Redhead team member, Rob Keck.

I always get a hug from Janet Post, someone who never slows down and makes things happen during the One Shot.

Just before 7:00 a.m. and the 60 mph winds and rain, my guide and I connected on a nice Kansas tom.

My new Mossberg, Indian Creek choke tubes and Nikon scope were a little more than this gobbler could take.

I finally killed a turkey for Chasing Spring. I was my own cameraman for this hunt and some how managed to call the bird in and shoot him too.
