We're getting set up for a great turkey season and I can't wait.  We will be having a youth hunt, then taking some adults and Wounded Warriors out this season, but our main focus this year is Eric, our good friend from the VA home in Warrensburg that is a quadriplegic.  We were close to getting a deer during deer season, but we're more confident and familiar with the equipment for turkey season, so we've already started to plan our attack on the elusive thunder chickens.  It's always a great privilege to hunt with Eric and any vet or child that we take out on a hunt.

We still have a few spots left for the youth turkey hunt, so come by our shop at 209 S. Ohio and get signed up.  It's a first come first served basis, so don't wait!  I like to get everyone together at least a week prior to the hunt.  That way, if they need to go shoot, the guide can go and get acquainted with the hunter and see what he or she might need.

This weekend is going to be great.  The rodeo will be back in town, and we will be going to the Luke Bryan concert in Columbia.  The Marshall Bowhunters' first shoot of the year will be held Sunday, and it's always a great shoot.  Also, the Missouri Deer Classic in Columbia is coming up.  I will be there with the United Bowhunters of Missouri helping out, playing some of our videos and showing off some of our equipment that we use for the visually impaired.  If you want to see what's up in the outdoors world, it's truly a great show.  You can take your deer and get them scored.  They'll have everything from archery, guns, knives, trips, you name it, it's all there.

Keep checking the website and tune in to our show, because the Mid-Mo Outlaws' season is just around the corner.  You know that if we're doing something in the community, the Mid-Mo Outlaws will be involved.  I can't wait for some high-energy indoor football.  If you haven't been to a game or you aren't into football, I guarantee that if you go to one game that you'll be hooked.  It's probably the best buy for family entertainment on the professional level that you can get.

Seeya next week!
