Congratulations, 4!

Well, and sorry about the battle wounds.

This is a great reminder to all of us.

It's not like I've killed a ton of birds, but I know dern well to watch out for spurs. Nonetheless, I got spurred pretty good just a few years ago.

I get so excited that I can't think straight. Sort of like folks shooting a deer and walking straight out of their deer stand into mid-air or chasing a downed turkey with a loaded shotgun (safety off).

We all need to make a conscious effort to keep the dingleberry factor at bay.

A good idea. However, like Gil says, if we could just think we would never have a problem. However, with me, at any rate, that ain't never gonna happen. lol
Besides,I have been fairly lucky by hunting pasture edges, particularly this late in the season when they are wearing the bugs out. So, I normally just drive my vehicle to the bird and load him in. However, the rains this week have washed out my first culvert which means, until I can repair it, its walk, carry, or don't hunt.
