Here too. Ed hunts every season, turkey and deer. He is a bow hunter. We 
have quite a few deer killed on the highways year-round. It is so sad. I 
read a Dear Abbey column once from a husband who took his wife turkey 
hunting after going only with his friends for years. He outfitted her with 
clothes and gun. She got up early, was excited to go, etc. They put her in 
a blind and went to their blinds. After sitting there for a couple hours, a 
large flock came into view, with everyone waiting for the right time to 
shoot. All of a sudden, the wife jumped up and started waving her arms, 
yelling: RUN TURKEYS RUN!!!! I laughed so hard when I read that! Sounds 
like something I would do!
