Sorry everyone..I didnt know where to put thread? Hunting or Hunting reports?
My dad drove out from New Mexico and we went out to see if would could get him his first long beard. We were very fortunate, and we were able to connect on the only two birds we had opportunities at. Sometimes you just get lucky like that....(actually that was our first time/only time to get this lucky on 2 gobblers in one trip) My dads Tom was just a classic call in. The picture perfect way you want your dads first gobbler to be harvested. 30 minute call in, full strut, about 25 gobbles total, nobody else around to goof it up, and a clutch 48 yard shot by my dad.

The weather was actually quite cool (we got rain, snow, sleet, fog, bad winds, you name it over 4 days) and this seemed to keep the boars a little more active too. This cool looking white/black boar was taken at 208 yards with my .270 Winchester Short Mag. It went about 130 lbs. Pops connected with a smaller all black in the 110 lb range.

We just made the most of our opportunities and had one of our best trips!

That is awesome. Great pics, but it does go in the huntingreports forum as this is a hunting report.

    Thanks Guys. My dad and i both thought it was one of our best trips ever. The best part was just hanging out with my dad and spending time together. We go all out doing quite a bit of research/scouting for all our trips and put alot of effort into all our adventures, but it really doesnt matter if we tag out or not. Its just the process and spending time together.

    Way to go guys.What County did you guys hunt? Those don't look like local birds, may be Merriams or Goulds with all that white on the tips and mid feathers.Very nice.

    We drove up to the central Califonia coastal area, and also spent a day and a half in the mountains east of Fresno.
