I’d Rather Be Lucky Than Good

An opening day turkey!

Deciding to retire in 2005, to my ranch in Goldthwaite, Texas, had not been the difficult decision that I had expected. The year before my retirement I had planted some peach trees and had just put in this year’s garden, one of my “gifts” being a very green thumb! Spring Turkey season opened on April 2, and not having had the time in the past to indulge in this spring sport and since I was retired, and especially, since my ranch lies in the middle of some fine Turkey country, I decided that I would try my luck.
