Whats up guys? Just got added to the team. I'll be hunting Western Maryland beginning April 18th. It will be my first year turkey hunting. I've been hunting deer, small game and waterfowl for around 16 years. I actually went out scouting yesterday, got a good look at 1 nice gobbler, and heard at least 3 others!!

Welcome aboard guys. Speakin' of scouting, I just got off the phone with my brother that does all the farming on the family farm in KS. His cows are calving right now, and he told me that there's been about 200, yip...200 turkeys in the pasture with the cows for the last several mornings. SO, don't think it's going to be too tough finding a tom, or two, this spring. That's my kind of scouting.

5 coyotes called in and killed in one day is a good day any where in the country. And you guys got 3rd? WOw, how many did the 1st and 2nd palce teams get?
I've had a good year out here, got 37 total. 5 of those were in the right spot at the wrong time, not called in![8D]It's been warm and dry out here in eatern CO. this winter, and the fur buyer quit buying them two weeks ago, because they had started rubbing already. For me, it's time to start shooting the bow more, and time to get rifles tuned up to shoot prairie dogs.

For the last two seasons, I've been using a .204 custom built AR. Love it. I just received my 2nd custom built ARand it's in the 243 wssm. cal, but I just got my scope on it and plan to shoot some test loads next weekend. How much I use the .243 wssm. is yet to be determined, but a guy can never have too many guns to choose from. I use several different hand calls, mostly Verminator distress calls, a few customs including some that I have built from cow horn, and I use a Fox Pro FX5 some also. I prefer hand calls, but the ecaller does have its advantages.
