Seniors this year have missed out on so much, but one Monroe City Senior was able to harvest his first turkey. Thaddaeus Ferguson was accompanied by Greg Beaver on his maiden hunt. Beaver stated, “I would like to thank Tim Powers, Tina Blair Powers and Thaddaeus Ferguson for letting me be part of this young man’s first turkey harvest. I think I was more excited than he was. It was a great time... killed by 6:20 a.m.” Beaver also thanked Steve Fahle for teaching him years ago the patience needed to hunt turkeys and how to call in a bird.
It takes a community to come together and allow others to learn and thrive in a new environment. This may be Ferguson’s first turkey, but you can bet it won't be his last.
