Nice birds guys! I cant find my pics from a few years back. I've been on a 2 year dry streak. This year is the year though. And I might postpone my opener to Sunday.Suppose to be rainy/snowy and windy Saturday. I've hunted in that plenty of times but I'll take the nicer of the two days.

We might as well win this thing for bragging rights. Everyone bust butt this year, so if we beat JW's team, I can rub it in. I live for those moments.

Sounds like a plan to me Jaybird!! I may have to trade in my calls and shotgun for a pair of snow shoes and a shovel, but if thats the case I'm huntin till there's a dead bird or I'm hospitalized from frostbite! Tear em up this weekend Mottz!!! Can't wait to hear the report from ya at the end of the weekend. Good Luck and be safe.

Nice Pics everyone. IA Jaybird, that is the true definition of a jelly head. What kind of gun/choke/load did you pepper him with?

Still have about a month to go here, but seeing the pics is getting me pumped. Nice pics again everyone and good luck.

I'm shooting 3 1/2 Hevis out of a 11-87 with a Cabelas Hevi shot Turkey choke.
Check the head out on this Nebraska Gobbler.

Good Huntin.....
LOL. On the Nebraska double, one of my sons and me were in ground blinds about 15' apart, and I was suppose to take the first shot. Finally he shoots, and I have to take the second on a running shot. When I asked him why he shot first, he's like "if I waited till you shot, mine would have been in my lap". If they keep coming, I'm in no hurry. On a different hunt in Iowa, I took one at 54 yards, when he would not come any closer. I finally got tired of him irritating me by strutting back and forth for 15 minutes in front of my dekes. A chicken 2 year old, that didn't want to mess with my Jake decoy.

Now that we have our team together, I expect you all to stay with this team till it's over, and not dissapear. I joined a team to participate, and I will bust butt to get some birds posted. No one is that busy they can't occasionally post on the team thread to let us know how you are doing. If you don't shoot one, don't worry about it. It's hunting, not going to the supermarket, and buying one. When you are done with your seaason, let us know, so we know where we sit in the contest. If I know where we sit, towards the end of May, and it's close in the contest, I can hunt till the end of May, if needed. Let's have fun with this.

I'll be here Iowa! I usually check it a couple times a day. We are 2nd already in the post count for teams so if we keep the chat up we have a ways to go but we could take 1st in that also. I have til the end of May to get a bird or three. But I'll be out close to every weekend. I usually hunt for a few hours and then I switch to deer mode. Checking and setting cameras, looking for good spots and setting treestands. Maybe even keep my eyes open for morel mushrooms even though I don't eat them. I know there is some good money in those. I just like to be out and by next year I'll be taking my son out. He'll be 4 by then. I did take him out shed hunting once this year and his legs just aren't long enough to step over things. He kept tripping and saying "ahhhh damn". But he's still excited about it
