What do you guys think?

Thanks, Nathan

I'd say 25 yards or closer.

Well out bow/youth season started today. I didnt go but I went out to a couple of my spots and it is looking pretty promising. I am going to make some phone calls and get a trail cam up and try and get there pattern penned down. Come the 15th hopefully I can seal the deal on one of them. I didnt get a good look at the toms since I got pulled over by a sheriff trying to look at them(driving too slow and looked suspicious). But from what I saw they were pretty nice.

Well all i had a realy exciting day out hunting tonight no score yet but was fun and a learning exp.
It was about 2 pm when i got out to a spot along some powerlines on private land .And i hit the box call and herd a tom in the distance.I walked to the edge of the property and called again he was closer so i set up and hunkered down .about 3 i see the tom walking down the ridge twards me , called him to about 100 yrds where he hangs up on me.I yelp he gobbles, i cluck he gobbles .........now this is where it gets exciting....i feel something on my leg and just look at my legs and what do i see...................A Rattler on my leg!!!!!!!!!!!
so i sit still not breathing as the snake slithers across me .... it gets across bolth legs and gets a few feet away!! So i breath and move a smidge in relief ....he coils and hissesssss and i decided that i didnt want to get bit so i shot him with a load of #5 shot at 4-5 feet not a pretty sight for him ....Sorry no picts as i left him out there ...
but of coarse the tom flew off at the shot so no bird tonight.mabie tommarow will be better day out lets get thundering toms on the board gl all be SAFE..

Storm, just crack down on the school work and then get out there and bust one in the late season, i find that it gets better later on anyway.

Mud, I'm pretty sure that if a rattler was going across my leg i would not have been able to sit still long enough for him to get off it before I shot him.

Well i'm headed to Neb. for merriams on the opener the 17th and then will be in Mo. the next weekend. I was going to hunt the 2nd season here but will hunt the first season the 12th instead so that i can be in Neb. for the opener on the 17th.
