Anybody getting ready to start turkey hunting? I think me and my brother are going to go to a place with about 6 toms on opening morning. Been in the same exact spot for the last week.

What a crazy weekend. So we've had this spot picked out for a little over a month now. Scouted it out, found out where they are roosting and where they come out of the woods to feed in this wheat field. I snuck out in the afternoon and built a blind using chicken wire stretched between two round bales and put some grass in it. We went up on Saturday to make sure the blind was still up and we discovered that all the grass and surrounding woodlands had been burned. Don't know if it was controlled or not. But our haybales are now two large smoldering coals. We were on our way up the next morning to determine if we could still hear some gobbling in what was left of the woods and we almost ran into another flock much closer to home and in a more ideal situation. Guess it wasnt so bad after all.

I am back for good almost. Got a job with the Emporia Kansas Fire Dept. and I am gonna try to work part time for US Fish and Wildlife. Shot a nice gobbler in Linn County. 10.5 in beard, 24 pounds, 3/4 in spur and 7/8 in spur. He was on a dang near inaccessible hillside. Heard him gobble in the morning, and ewnt back and sat for 3 hours in the evening. Well worth it. By far my heaviest turkey ever.

CONGRATS on the bird. I have already finished my turkey season three weeks ago. Got three longbeards in 2 weeks. By the way was that a rio that you shot? That is a bird that is on my list to get.
