My guide Lance, my new hunting partner Jim Connolly, and I hit the field bright and early.
Watching dawn break over the Badlands of Pine Ridge Indian Reservation while hunting for turkey was a sight to behold.
What the hell are you looking at?!
I tell ya', prairie rats are cute until you see several hundred of them together.
Then it's just creepy.
Success came early with my taking this gorgeous Merriam.
I couldn't have done it without my borrowed Stoeger Industries M3500 Shotgun!
That was a plug!
Jim nailed two birds that morning.
The above are just two of the reasons he has been hunting Pine Ridge Indian Reservation for more than a decade!
I'm not sure how Jim took two Toms without using a superior Stoeger Industries M3500 Shotgun!
That was another plug.
Wait a minute...
Why didn't anybody tell me I'd been hunting a former bomb area?!
My hunt was over...
But more Badlands adventure awaits!
