2013 Merriams Spring Turkey Hunt Pics

We had a great spring turkey hunt this weekend on the White Mountain Apache with some good friends.  Our temps in the mornings were 12-20 degrees and highs from 55-70.  The winds were mainly mild making for a great hunt. The gobblers were pretty henned up but were vocal enough to make it very interesting.  I got some good video that I will post soon.  Special thanks to our guide Ricardo Velasquez and our camp boss Josh Parker for all of their hard work.

Parker Colburn's First Turkey

By Darr Colburn

 My oldest son Parker (age 11) drew a juniors turkey tag in Arizona unit 23.  He had the same tag last year and after hunting hard for three days came home without getting a bird.  This year we decided it would be fun to stay at the Marvin Robbins Memorial juniors camp put on by the National Wild Turkey Federation, Arizona Elk Society and the Arizona Game and Fish department.  We got to camp Friday afternoon and set up our tent.  We checked in and talked to some old friends and met some new people.  The camp atmosphere was great with lots of things for the kids to do.  Marvin Robbins was a friend of mine and I attended many of his turkey seminars at the Desert Christian Archers meetings.  He was also great to Parker and gave him a pocket knife and several turkey calls.  I know he was looking down on us on this hunt.  I called Parker's bird into 10 yards and he made a great shot.  Parker told me when the bird popped out and he saw the beard he just had to shoot it.  I would like to give a huge thank you for all the volunteers and groups that helped put this camp on.

Tyler's 2013 CA Turkey Hunt with Jay Scott Outdoors

Check out this awesome hunt with friends Brian and Tyler Davis of Fowl Play Taxidermy.  This is Tyler's first turkey.  My nephews and I have had some great hunts with Craig and Ronell over the years.

Both Tyler and Will's hunts were featured on Cabelas Spring Thunders weekly show.  Their hunts are at about the 9:15 mark.  The host of the show, Aaron Warbritton, is doing a great job with the series.

Moving Bighorn Sheep Video-Unit 22 to Unit 37B Mineral Mtns

This is a great video depicting the AZGFD and their efforts to sustain and relocate desert bighorn sheep. Special thanks to the Arizona Desert Bighorn Sheep Society for all of their contributions and support! These sheep were relocated in October of 2012. I got to see there efforts first hand while scouting in Unit 22 for Ernie's hunt.  Helicopter surveys are extremely valuable to our herds.  These sheep were relocated from Unit 22 and 24B by Canyon Lake to Unit 37B in the Mineral Mountains.

Will's 2013 California Turkey Hunt

Check out my nephew Will's 2013 California turkey hunt.  Will showed great poise letting me get some footage of this good looking bird as he struts up to the Dave Smith Decoys.  Also, I am putting a APB out for a Arizona Unit 9 archery elk tag holder to guide.  I guess I got a little snobby and turned down many other guiding opportunities in other units hoping for the prized jewel of elk tags in Unit 9.  I am available to guide on the archery elk hunt!

2013 Gould's Turkey Hunt with Colburn and Scott Outfitters

Darr and I had a great hunt and adventure this weekend in Sonora, Mexico for Gould's turkeys.  Our hunter, Bill Wohlers, from Iowa harvested two beautiful Gould's and completed his Royal Slam. The birds were not quite completely fired up but both of these birds came in to our calls.  The Gould's are notorious for their white band on their tail feathers.  I don't think there is another turkey that compares in beauty.  We look forward to more Gould's adventures in a couple of weeks.  Congrats to Bill on his Royal Slam!
