Gavin Rhodes, 5/29/16
This week's Pic of the Week is 8 year old Gavin Rhodes. Gavin is pictured here with his 18.6 pound tom, with a 10 inch beard and 1 inch spurs. Gavin had just completed his hunter's safety course a week and a half before the Vermont youth turkey weekend. His Dad, Josh, had pre-scouted and after no luck early, they moved to a spot where he had seen birds mid morning. Gavin held it together as he had to wait until a jake and hen separated from his tom. He then made the perfect shot with his Mossberg 20 gauge. Josh couldn't be more proud, and we also share in your excitement for Gavin! For sharing your photo we'll be sending Gavin a fluorescent orange lighted cap, courtesy of The Hunter's Smart Seat®.
