Had a great hunt with taking 2 Osceolas Friday at 9 am, and Saturday at 7:15 am. My camera pooped out on me, but I'm pretty sure all the photos with measurements are okay. I'll try to get everything lined up, and posted tomorrow. Neither bird weighed much at 13#s 13ozs, and 14#s 1oz but second had a 10 3/4" beard, 1 and 1 1/8" spurs, so that's not bad. I'm pretty tired out, because I tagged along with my buddy while he tried to get his first Osceola of the year in his quest for a one year slam. He got that done at 10:30 Sunday, to go along with the 2 Rios he's already put down. I had an absolute ball on this hunt, and I'm very happy to shoot my first Osceolas.

First bird will score 50.5625 and second 56.8125, but camera is shot, so have to figure out how to get the card read onto my computer. It's a good start, but should be able to put down higher scoring birds once I hunt the pigs in Kansas and Iowa. I was just happy to get a couple of Osceolas irregardless of size. My buddys was a real nice 19#er with 1 1/8 and 1 1/4 spurs with a 9" beard.

Jay I have this little black card reader deal i bought for about 8 bucks from wal-mart. You just stick the card in it and it plugs into a usb portIt's pretty quick and simple.

Sounds like a plan.
