One of the great perks about my job is the people I meet. I received a call several weeks ago from a young man named Ben. He was referred to us by someone who saw our booth at the Louisiana Sportsman’s Show in Gonzales.
Ben is a man on a mission. He wants to harvest a turkey in every state in America, and having already having sixteen states down; Louisiana was next on his list. As fate would have it, we found another hunter, Randy, who had already accomplished that feat. He bent over backwards to help Ben complete this part of his quest. I was lucky enough to be in the blind with Ben to video his hunt. As the sun was starting to rise we heard several birds gobble and in less than an hour Ben took a very nice turkey. We will have the hunt on a future episode of Redneck Adventures with Jim Bob Allgood.
We hope to help Ben with other hunts in the future as he continues his quest. Thanks Ben for letting us is a part of your hunt. A special thanks to Randy for putting us on the birds, especially since he had experienced the loss of a family member the day before. Some of the best people in the world are Louisiana sportsmen.
