Story Summary

Best friends Cotton and Rooster join their Uncle Jake for a spring turkey hunt accompanied by Uncle Jake's old hound Bogus. When they sight a turkey, Rooster grabs hold of Bogus' collar so he won't scare the bird but when the shot rings out, Bogus takes off after the fallen gobbler over bushes and ledge with Rooster in tow.
