From deer to wild turkeys, Rynestad family has a western North Dakota hunting trip to remember
A combination deer and turkey hunting trip to western North Dakota turned out well for Bob Rynestad; his son, David Rynestad; and grandson, Wythe Rynestad, all of Grand Forks.
“We hunted deer Nov. 9, and Wythe shot a 3x3 mulie (his first deer) -- he is 16,” Bob Rynestad writes.
Hunting in Unit 4C west of Grassy Butte, N.D., Bob and David Rynestad also filled their deer and turkey tags.
“We then hunted turkeys on Nov. 10, and on Nov. 11, we got lucky and got our turkeys," Bob Rynestad writes. “We stalked them about a mile and caught them in a Badlands ravine. We feel very lucky, because success rate on turkeys is 39 percent.
“David and I then hunted deer on Monday, Nov. 12, and both shot nice mulie does,” he adds. “We got the deer and turkeys in same area.”
