This season has been incredibly frustrating for me. I have been on birds all season but they either hang up just out of range, follow hens away, you name it. I could've killed a bunch of jakes, but longbeards eluded me. Today Grizzly Johnson and I hunted all day on public land without hearing a peep. At 2:15 we set up in an area with a ton of sign. At 2:45 I fed this double bearded gobbler a load of Hevi 6's. We didn't shoot him off the roost and we didn't bushwack him. We killed him the old fashioned way: Being persistant and calling him in to the gun. One shot, one kill. Thanks to Grizzly for teaming up for a tough but rewarding day in the woods. Tomorrow we will be back after them.

21 pounds 8 ounces, 10 and 5/8 and 2 and 5/8 inch beards, 1 and 1/16 spurs.

Stir... stir.... \:D



Just kidding..... Had a slow start, plenty of sign.... patience kills more birds than anything. Today was your day and we made it happen.....finally. Sure wish REN could have stayed to share in the accomplishment, but had a great day with friends anyway.

Congrats, glad you got the monkey off your back.

Tomorrow is another day!!! \:\)

Yes sir Griz. I wish REN could've stayed around too. I sure enjoy hunting with him and you. Now let's go get that double we been talking about.

Thanks Catman!
