Sorry to hear about that Mottz. You'll get em' tho.

I scoreda secondtag for 5/20-5/24 so I doubled my chances at bagging a bird.

Rage- You should have a pretty good chance at smoking one! Wish I could've gotten a 3rd tag but they sold out within a day and since you can only buy one a day I was screwed. Oh well, two is better than one.

Knock em' dead guys.

Going to try and beat the weather tomorrow. They are calling for wind rain and then snow from 2 to 6 inches. Hopefully the turkeys are on the move before the storm. I have to say though, so far this spring weather sucks!!

Could my luck get any worse??? I'll make this short. Very windy but found some birds. Took a 30 yard shot at a jake and went just under him, but my arrow did have feathers and just a touch of beard on it. Then found some more birds, between 50 and 75 all in a group. At least half were toms all fanned out. Got behind a big tree and tried calling. For 45 minutes they ignored me. Then 3 broke away and headed towards me. As 1 was coming up the hill I drew back and the bird stopped just on the other side of the tree about 10 yards out. All i could see down my sights was a beak and a double beard. I needed him to step just 1 more foot out, but he must of seen my decoys and turned and starte walking back. I let off, stood up and he was 15 yards out when I drew again. I shot and I heard a noise and my arrow went 10 feet over him. I tried to put another arrow in but nothing lined up. Found out that as I drew the 2nd time a branch got between my limb and cam and when I shot it jumped the string off my cam. SO with all those birds out there all I could do is say, "Might as well go home."

Alright rage, you might need to pull some weight, cause I can't seem to get anything done. (I'm trying the be negative approach to see if that will lead to success)

I won't be out until Saturday the 25th. Missouri's season doesn't start until the 20th and since I've been moving I don't want to take a vacation day so I'll have to wait til Saturday. Hopefully the weather stays good.
