My pal Kasidy Manhart, an Idaho native and avid elk hunter, has spent the past week hunting whitetails and fall turkeys with me here in the Mid-South. Kasidy had never taken a whitetail or turkey prior to this trip, but he wrapped things up in grand fashion, arrowing his first whitetail, a button buck, yesterday evening, followed up by a fat forkhorn this morning. He shot a jake Tuesday afternoon. Though he won't be going home with a set of Pope and Young antlers, he will have a cooler of meat so heavy it'll be slapped with oversize baggage fees at the airport. I'd call that a pretty good trip.
