This was definitely a group effort with (L-R) Jason Nash, Becky Lou, BIG BIRD, Cristie Gates & Joe Googan. This hunt was filmed in 2011 for an episode of 'Benelli on Assignment" for the Outdoors Channel Turkey Hunt #2.

Sarco Creek Turkey Hunt in Goliad Texas

April 8, 2013 @ 5:00 pm – April 12, 2013 @ 6:00 pm
Writers Hunt @ Sarco Creek Ranch
TX 77963

I am excited to report that I’ve been invited back to the Historical Sarco Creek Ranch April 8-12, 2013.

All I can say is S-W-E-E-T!!

Several men and women will again be joining Joe Coogan of Benelli USA for a writers hunt to tackle the challenge of outwitting those big mature Rio Grande longbeards–this time with Franchi’s new Affinity semiauto in 20 ga.—now available in a compact model. We’ll also be helping Sarco Ranch deal with an overpopulation of hogs, employing various Uberti guns that will include SAA revolvers, 1885 High walls, 1874 Sharps and lever-actions. We’ll be stoking these guns with Federal ammo in a variety of loads, so there’s sure to be some exciting action and great stories to tell once the dust has settled!

My trip to Sarco Creek in 2011 was a very magical trip. The ranch is privately owned and only family and invited guests are allowed on the property. We were treated like Kings and Queens! The food was fabulous! There were two shows filmed during this hunt, I was featured in one along with Julie Golob,(Turkey Hunt #2)  and Karen Lee of Turkey Country Magazine was featured in another along with Pam Zaitz of HotMocs (Turkey Hunt #1) Here is a link to my and Julie’s episode, hopefully to get Karen & Pam’s up online soon!

Being one of only 3 women on the hunt, I am really looking forward to spending more time with the delightful Britney Starr of “Starr & Bodill African Safaris”and WON! What a hoot this girl is! I am also really excited to meet Emily Snyder of NRA for the first time! This is sure to be another magical trip to this beautiful piece of heaven.

    My two grand daughters; 3rd and 2nd grade, want to shoot a gobbler with their bow. They have been shooting their bows regularly at Pro Bass, Katy for about 2 years and are fairly good up to 16 yards. We live in the Katy TX area. Do you have any suggestions where I can take them, their mother wants to tag along, that is not too far from Katy and is not really high priced. They do not care if the bird is a trophy or not. I have the calls and pop blind for all of us to sit in.
