    Now that were getting close be sure to take another look at the rules. Would hate for one of us to take down a big ol gobbler and not have it count cause we don't have a pic.

    "Only bow kills will be accepted. The hunter must provide a picture of the full turkey, hunter and bow all in the same frame. No exceptions will be taken."

    Good luck Steve. It's getting close for me. Hopefully the weather improves here in IL. It's cold and supposed to rain for the next week. Hard to get great film when it's pouring rain so I really need things to improve by the weekend of the 20th.

    Swing and a miss boys. Would like to throw all the excuses out there possible but simply mid-judged the distance an gave the bird a belly rub. Still have this upcoming weekend and the birds are around just not responding to calls much. I'm hoping to have a better update by this coming Sunday...

    Played hooky and went out on opening day which was Monday for me. Set up a blind on Sunday that was pretty promising but in the morning it didnt produce. Went out and found a flock in the afternoon and couldnt get em to respond but got some good ones spotted and hoping to make it happen this weekend before my short season ends...

    Well boys I've been after them for the past 5 days and I've had some great encounters. The birds have been completely call shy and have not closed into shooting range yet. Still have 2 more tags available, so I'm hoping something changes.

    My seasons over and I just couldnt connect. Birds were call shy and just way to jumpy. Had 2 good toms and a jake coming in when a fox busted me and had a few other chances but just couldnt make it happen
