5/1/2019 Turkey Hunt

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Hunting

One of the best days at Kemp Lake ever! Dane Horine kicked some stuff by shooting TWO turkeys in one shot after his guide, Derick McCulloch, called them up. Dane has been trying for 3 years – and twice at Kemp Lake this year – to get a gobbler and finally succeeded bigtime! Dane has been dealing with muscular dystrophy for over 10 years in addition to the three-year dry spell, so this hunt was particularly satisfying. Two at once! Wow!

All smiles! Dane Horine & Guide Derick McCulloch – 2 birds in one shot!

14 participants and 5 caregivers descended on Kemp Lake on Friday, April 19th. After eating lunch and watching videos, some fished, some went on a birdwatching excursion and some just hung out on a cold April day!

Birdwatching Trip – “Turkey” Tom Parmeter – resident birdwatching guide – along with Craig Dillow, took a number of participants around the Kemp Lake grounds. An owl and a pileated woodpecker were among the number of birds seen. Also, an osprey dove into the water at one of the fish feeders and grabbed an unsuspecting fish!

Organizer Crystal Barton set up the fishing. Despite the colder day, some 14 or 15 fish were caught.

All smiles – the guy holding up the bass said he had caught 8 fish total!

Chris Rose, his brother, Bill, and son Keith on a typical turkey hunt – except when you discover Chris is blind and Bill is a stroke survivor! Keith is Chris’ “eyes” and work together extremely well. For deer hunting, Chris has a special scope that allows for his son to assist in aiming his rifle on an iPad. For turkey hunting, Keith stands behind his Dad and aligns with the barrel of the shotgun to call out aiming corrections.

Didn’t get a turkey, but maybe next year!
