You'll get one of them JW... we have faith.. I'd like to see how the blind in the open works.. I have seen it on the double bull videos, but have been apprehensive about trying it.

Ya me too and I am going for broke...I have two locations with permission and found a third I bet I can get access too -allwithvery goodTom(s).....now I will be facing west - with the back of the blind all dark so as not to have any shadows as the sun comes up from the East - this is so I can move. You really need to keep any back light completely closed off - totally dark. I have had birds spook even with that screen down. Best I could figure was a shadow moved at the wrong time because of a small amount of backlight - that shadow was ME!

A single hen or maybe 2 hens will be out in front of me at 10 paces - no more no less.

Nice work JW... I was actually thinking to myself that we would need a double or triple beard to get back close to 1st.
Maybe we can keep the same team if we win the most bird section of the contest...
Running out of time here. I do have 1 more NY tag left. We shall see... I haven't been out since Sat

I'm headed out in the morning weather permitting as I have to ride the to atv 11 miles to my spot on Fridays cuz the girlfriend takes our truck to work. I have a nice bird located but the last time we set up on him he was henned up really bad so I'm hoping he's bred a few of his girls and that we will be able to get him headed our way in the morning. We'll see. Very nice J-Dub!!! I am still waiting on my first multiple beard turkey to walk by.
