Growing up hunting has taught me many life qualities, such as patients, determination, vigor, and even humility. Hunting is something that gets into your blood and will never come out, but for me it is more than that.

Spring Brings Us Together

Zac Geith & Collin Mann

In the Mann family the winter gets very busy. Through the long, yet seamlessly short deer season, the time gets rather hectic. Once things start settling down with the holidays and the whitetail season ending, and then it is time to part ways yet again. Brothers all separate whether to go to school or back home to start the year, they once again are apart.

Through the next few months it is hit or miss on whether the weekends can match up to head home together. Though we seem to have crazy schedules, we still keep in touch and plan a few shed hunting adventures while waiting on the turkey season to come.

Prepping for Spring Turkey Season is always an exciting time. The weather is changing and becoming warmer, the animals seem to be out and moving, and everyone seems to have higher spirits. Scouting for the turkeys is a little fun we have before opening day. This allows us to get out and look for the birds while spending valuable time together. Placing blinds, game planning for paths, even fighting over who gets to hunt where are all rituals that come year after year.

My mother is one of the most motivated hunters I have ever met. We have all hunted together for many years and I do not see this changing anytime soon. It is very different then deer season, when you can over hunt a spot and have too many people together and so on. Turkey hunting for us is more of a family time. Beats are always being placed, buttons being pushed, even wrestling matched being performed. This is all something that I would never want to live without.

I challenge you to have memories like these. I challenge you to bring people that you love hunting. Mostly I challenge you to fall in love with the outdoors.
