  8. last day bird

    Finally made it come together. Last morning at that!!! He wasn't where they normally are, which is across the gravel on another one of the properties we can hunt. Didn't get to him till he flew down but he continued to gobble so I figured he was by himself. Got on the edge of a wood lot, which had a green strip around it. He gobbled and wasn't 70 yards away. Set up the full strutter and a hen decoy. Made a few calls and he answered every call. Got him really fired up and within minutes he was running to the strutter. Had a Mexican standoff for a few but I couldn't take it no more and rolled him at 18 steps. 21.60 lbs, 10 beard, 1" on one side, 7/8 on other. Hunted with my little brother so it was a hunt to remember!!! Had him on the ground at 6:16. Son also got married yesterday so it was a great day!!!

  12. It won't be long!

    Fixing to start breaking ground too. With all the flowers up and trees budding it defiantly wont be long. But I'm betting winters not completely over yet. I hope so, lol.
  13. My 2016 Buck

    Got this guy opening day. Wasn't my biggest by far but he will eat good. Didn't have him on camera and he hadn't started even rutting yet. Tarsals were clean. He came grunting every time a foot hit the ground so he thought he was a big boy. Lot of meat for $17, lol.

    It was hard enough with a summer garden,lol. The stinking bugs basically eat mine up. I sprayed, put out 7 dust but I think they liked it. Terrible year for us.

  19. Counting The Days

    Its defiantly getting time. They have been hollering here in the south. Heard 3 Saturday and my buddy heard 10. They are shutting up pretty quick once they hit the ground but it sure is nice to hear them gobble.
