Thanks guys, he was a good bird for sure and put on one heck of a show. Killed it in the exact spot DTC Jr killed his bird during youth season. Talked with my dad this morning and he heard 4 gobble behind his house and I heard 3 gobble behind my house. Can't hunt til next Monday but glad to know they are still gobbling. Taking DTC Jr to NE next week, just bought his tags online. Should be a good time, my buddy killed one with his bow up there last night and his son killed one with a shotgun. He has some quality spots to hunt so mabye Jr can get his merriams down. Then I will be forking out some cash to head south for an osceola. I am way to good to that kid.lol

Hey guys. Shot this bird this morning at 6:25. He popped out in the field about 80 yards away in full strut. Then a hen followed him out. I thought for sure he would follow the hen away from me, but a few sweet purrs on the slate and he was on his way up to visit my hens. Didn't gobble much, but put on a nice show with his strut.

Weight: 20 lbs. 1 oz.
Beard: 9.5"
Left Spur: 1.25"
Right Spur: 1.125"

Total Score: 62.8125

Thanks for getting the scores entered so quickly j76. By far the best captain I've ever had in these contests.

Good Luck to everyone still chasing.

Great Tom Zubba. We are on a roll. If I can't upgrade with 4 tags on Iowa/Kansas I might as well take up gardening in the Spring. We got a realistic shot with this contest, if we keep putten them down. A lot of guys are just getting out on other teams, so we will need more birds to compete. Good job everyone. Agree on the great job j76 has done as team captain. Because of last years fiasco, I almost didn't join back up in the contest this year. Glad I did, because it's been a lot of fun.

Great Job zubba!! Beautiful Bird! I WILL redeem myself guys. Even though you're all killing me with your successes. Had a couple guys skip work this morning and they both got nice birds. Get this, and I've been wondering how it would work, but they went after birds out in the middle of fields. They walked behind a turkey fan straight at them. Moving the fan side to side they slowly cut the distance from 200 yards to 30 yards. They even said after getting close the toms actually turned towards them and started coming in. I've seen it on video before but never had the guts to try it. Now it will be an option. Plus I need to skip work to do it
