Turkey Hunt

I have to brag a little….Our 10-year-old grandson shot a 22-pound turkey with a 9.5-inch beard during Youth season. It was his first shot with a shotgun! Everyone was happy. I think I may have been happier than him!!

Due to one group needs to change their dates I have the last two weekends in April open!! Get together with your group/family/friends and book a fun trip to LINGERS GUIDE SERVICE & FISHING LODGE…..Water levels are great and the fish biting very well…..spinning, fly rod your choice….fishing has been great!

Youth Turkey Season

IMG_2334It was Youth Turkey Season, and we had a couple of warriors! One you can see never left camp and the other warrior took a little nap while I was calling. Guess my calling was pretty boring.

NancyMy youth bride Nancy sat quietly by as I tried to trick the Wiley gobbler down the hill but to no avail! We are back to a robust schedule of fishing, and they are biting!! Caught 27 in an hour and 50 minutes yesterday!! Enjoy the fun at lingers guide service & fishing lodge, don’t wait, contact me today and book some Summer fun in the Arkansas Ozarks!!



This was definitely the best Turkey hunting experience my wife Nancy and I have ever had.  wowsliderFor a change, my turkey calling seemed to actually mean something to the turkeys and they responded very well. My friend, Mark Becker and I “doubled” on Friday thanks to the YELLOW YELPER call!!.

Nancy got her first one early Saturday morning and she got her second one early Sunday morning. The time spent in the woods with her and coaxing those reluctant turkeys to within shotgun range  will be something she and I will remember/share for a lifetime . . . topping  it all off it was our 35th anniversary!!

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY NANCY!! We do more than just fish here at LINGER’S GUIDE SERVICE & FISHING LODGE. Book a trip and come share some stories!

How much fun is it to see a young folk get their first Turkey?! The Missouri Youth Turkey Season was last weekend and we were fortunate enough to have a successful hunter.

Jarret is his name and he is from Springfield. He was front and center on opening morning and with a little help from a relative he was able to get his .20 gauge on target and score his first Turkey. Hopefully this is just the beginning of a long relationship with the outdoors and all the fun and excitement that comes with it!

We are very lucky to have had a hunting lease for 16 or 17 years and it is experiences like Jarret’s that motivate us to continue keeping the dream alive for us adults as well as our children and grand children.
