2019 The Year of the Huntress

My 13-year-old daughter, Abby, loves to hunt! She has diligently hunted since she was 10 years of age. Abby has had some successful seasons where she has filled her deer tags. Yet she has never been successful hunting turkeys. Early in 2019, Abby told me she really wanted to harvest a turkey. This would be her first goal for the 2019 season.

The 2019 Youth Turkey hunt was quickly approaching when I received a call from Dan Kuzma. Dan wanted to invite Abby to his house to hunt turkeys. He had been seeing gobblers almost every day and he asked if she wanted to try her luck on a PA Longbeard. Abby was excited so we planned on heading to Dan's for the Saturday opener.
