Opinions are like......elbows-everybody has a couple. Mine are certainly worth no more than anybody elses.

But, for some of the newbies that haven't been through some of the TNDeer pissing contests, when Setterman talks turkey-I listen and learn. I've had enough offline conversations with him to know that he knows a heck of a lot more about those birds (and especially hunting them) than I do.

Some that have been around likely remember some of the online battles I had with Setterman in former TNDeer lives. To his credit he took a step back and publically said that he realized TWRA wasn't the enenemy. While he and I may not agree on everything, we have learned to agree to disagree. I have found him to be knowledgeable across the board on wildlife issues.

We have a number of folks on here that have wildlife degrees and wildlife backgrounds that don't work for a state agency. That certainly doesn't mean they don't know what they are talking about. I listen when they speak.

If you'll continue to talk turkey with us, Jim, I'll continue to listen. The picture was great and confirmed what I am hearing from several hunters about very early breeding this year (and some VERY late nesting last year).

Being educated on a subject does not make being a complete a-hole ok! I dont care if you know everything there is to know about something, acting like your better than everyone else is pure ignorance any way you cut it! Especially when you just proved yourself wrong and still wont admit you acted like an idiot!

No better words have ever been spoken.

If you think that was being an a hole, than I would hate to actually be an a hole. It might stun some folks, and cause some amazing reactions.

I certainly don't think I am better than anyone, and do not conduct myself in that manner on a daily basis.

I personally think some on here are just extremely sensitive, and cannot handle someone that disagrees with them, or might have a very broad base of knowledge on a subject. I have seen this same reaction to BSK and others who are very knowledgable, so I take it with a grain of salt.

The jury is still out on what/when occurred this past breeding period. Sure some hens did in fact breed early, but did all? Who knows at this point, and we won't know for a few weeks or even months.

I am most certainly not the only one who came to the table with this opinion, and most certainly was not the most outspoken when it came to this issue earlier this spring. If you think my words were a-holish than I would enjoy the reactions to some others who are more blunt than myself.

Go take a look at the musings of one of my classmates who posts under the heading of hitch on the ky hunting forum. He makes me look tame, and makes my knowledge base look trivial.

IMO, throwing around personal insults and attacks is the work of an insecure individual, and a person who bases their knowledge on knee jerk reactions or what they experience in their own microcosm.

Andy, I'm not sure we didn't have some bird nest even later than that. I have heard of some birds seen this season that were the size of a late summer poult. The floods definately changed some things around down this way.

Thanks for the neat picture!

I thought hitch and setter were one in the same too...

Interesting year that is for sure.

Very few people like the taste of crow. Some deal with the eating of it better than others

We got to know each other during school, and work together now, hunt together back home, and talk daily. He's a good cat, just intolerant of what he refers to as redneck idiocy. Which is quite a statement for someone from extreme southern miss, and who grew up in a trailer. We come from much different childhoods.
