    Saw a few gobblers today but couldn't get any into bow range. It was a windy/rainy day so i'm not too worried about it. Tomorrow is supposed to be nice so i've got my fingers crossed that tomorrow is the day! Hope everyone has a good weekend!

    Well fellas...Il season is over for me...had one bird gobblin like crazy yesterday right up till 1 pm when you have to stop hunting here. Snuck out when he went behind a small timber line in the pasture in his strut zone. Woke up to wind and rain today and decided to set up as early as possible on him and got out there plenty early! Hung till the end at 1 and only saw one hen. No gobbles anywhere, no other birds. Hopefully I can make it back to Kansas for one more hunt before the season is over and get some points on the board....Good luck everybody!

    I got it done this morning! Had 4 big gobblers come in to about 25 yards and I made a good shot on one of them. He wasn't the biggest of the group but he's still a great bird. He actually has two beards, which is very common around the area that we hunt. They measure 11" and 6". Only 7/8" spurs which is pretty average around here. I'll have pictures and his final score up tonight!! Happy Hunting!

    The bird on the far left is the bird I shot, you can tell by the white in his tail feathers!

    Congrats Mitch! I finally got out this morning for the first time this year. I had two gobblers coming and a pair of coyotes ran them off. Heard a lot of gobbling and worked a couple more birds until about 9am but they still had hens with them. I needed to get to work so I left them still gobbling.

    Alright fella's haven't been able to get on here in a few days. So here is the one I took Monday night when we finally got some rain and made'em come out in the fields. Pics are kinda blurry since it was raining but took some more in the garage when I got home. Here is the score from NWTF.
    Your score is 22.5 + 13.4 + 13.4 + 22 = 71.3
