    22 pounds. 7/8 spurs. 9 inch beard. 1 inch second beard. I have another tag so I'll wait to report for contest in case I would get a bigger bird.

    Nice bird scarps. I went out this morning to do some scouting to pinpoint exactly were the turkeys were and I heard at least 10. Season here in Missouri opens tomorrow morning so hopefully I can bag one of them birds.

    Very nice scraps. I head out to Western Nebraska for a 4 day hunt this weekend so hopefully I can bring something back with me.

    Called one in for a buddy last night. He was waiting for the gobbler to stop and didn't get a shot with his bow. Pretty fun.

    I've spent the last three days taking other guys out, killed four birds in three days. I finally get a chance to hunt tomorrow morning. Hopefully my luck continues.

    Got thunderstormed out Sunday morning before shooting light, made for an interesting run for the truck. I was directly under two roosted birds gobbling their fool heads off too. Oh well they got pardoned for a week. lol

    How it going for everyone? Any luck or still waiting to get out there?

    My season got cut short at the last minute because I finally got the call that I got the job at gander mountain! So training starts this week and is during most of the time i would've hunted. I will still get out for a day, so how hopefully that's all I need. I will do my best to put one down for you guys.

    Out right now. No birds yet. Went out yesterday morning. Only saw one hen and a deer. I hunt out of a stationary box blind so sometimes they are around you and sometimes not. Might get out a few more times, but motels should be popping here this week and I'm looking forward to that.

    I added my bird to scorecard. Might take the shotgun out to be more mobile rest of the year.

    Also moving this week so might not get out much more. Morels are also on my brain too much right now. Good luck out there.

    Close call Saturday, had a dandy and 2 hens at 10 yds I wasn't in a blind though and they showed up before I could even get settled. So I was stuck there eye to eye and couldn't get my bow drawn. lol Sunday morning I never even heard a bird (was windy though) One hen showed.... i gave up and took the kids fishin lol

    Got in the blind early this morning. I have one day to get it done. Already have a couple different gobblers around us, just need one to come in close.

    I managed to get a couple of shotgun kills for a couple of new hunters so that was a good thing because they are hooked. Every time I went out by myself I didn't have any luck. I have this weekend left to hunt so hopefully I can get lucky and put one down.
