I've been out twice so far (Tuesday and Wednesday) couldn't get any birds to work for me, but it's tough because I was only hunting about 20 acres. The storms yesterday cancelled a hunt yesterday morning, but I'm leaving tonight to head up to Northeast, MO for a Sat and Sun hunt. The only thing that sucks is how cold it's supposed to get. Hopefully I'll have some pictures of my bird and some of the other guys birds I'm going with. If it all goes good, I may find some mushrooms too!

Good Luck to anybody going out this weekend.

Hopefully we can all post up some pictures of birds. Me and Will are going to the quarry Saturday and Sunday. The only thing that sucks is that the quarry is going to be open on Saturday which it might be hard to hear the birds gobbling with all the trucks going down the roads.
They make those?

Congrats JP. Nothing like those short hunts.

I should have had one of those last Sunday. I was set up about 75 yards away from a bird on roost. All the sudden right at light, cows show up and start licking my decoy. I move a little ways and the bull run a group of cows right down in front of me again, and then deer come running through the field I was in and go right into the woods where the tom should've come out. Needless to say he stopped gobbling and wasn't comin my way.

It couldn't have got much worse.

WHOOPEEEEE! Finally got one this morning at Stockton Lake. Riding around in the boat and listening to the toms is how we've been doing it. The hunting this year has been horrible. My buddy, the caller, and I got a double together! Pretty cool! We had three toms and a hen come in at 9:40 a.m. this morning. It's tough trying to get two people sitting side by side on two birds 15 yards apart. We kiiled the two subordinate toms. The BIG gobbler stayed hidden at 40 yards in some really thick stuff. You should of heard him spittin' and drummin'. Mine was only 17 lbs., 10 inch beard, and 1 inch spurs. He tore his wing feathers apart from struttin and fighting and his breast was bare from breeding. My buddys was 20 lbs., 10 1/2 beard and 1 inch spurs. I'll try and get pics up. They are a very light buff copper color with lots of green and purple. Beutiful birds.
