I pulled into J & J Hideaway in Arlington Iowa with visions of last year's failure to fill my turkey tag in my head. It wasn?t due to the lack of birds on John?s property. No bird numbers are never a problem at J & J but they sure can make a gobbler chaser look silly. This was going to be the year my plan came together. We had hunted extensively at J & J and got fairly familar with certain areas of this wildlife paradise. Not only do they have a plethora of turkeys but many trophy whitetails abound as well. If you fill your tag you can head over to Grannis stream for a little trout action. My heart was pounding out of my chest and I felt like I was shaking as I held the gun steady. It was pointed straight up my shooting lane and that is where he popped his periscope up. I quickly bagged the bird up and headed for the cabin.
"We spent Easter weekend (2010) at your wonderful cabin with our two boys. It was very nice. We had more family out for a campfire and everyone was very impressed with the accomodations and the property. All the kids hiked out to the bluff overlook. We will be back soon!
