Our season opens here Saturday. I did some scouting this past weekend on a couple of farms I hunt. Shortly after flydown I continued to here a bird gobble in a pasture field. I drove over to find him with a hen near a brush pile that I have managed to kill a bird out of the last three years on opening morning. Hopefully the good Lord will shine down on me once again and allow me to keep the tradition going.

KANSAS IN THE HOUSE!

19.9 pounds
beard -I would say 10.5 but there are stray hairs a little longer.
Spurs, certainly no limb hanger, and my ruler could be placed better but one spur is just a fraction under and inch and the other is just over 3/4.

Fun day for an opener!

Don

Congrats on a very nice bird. I scored him at 58.6875. I think we have a great chance to repeat as champs. Donnie, I see you killed the bird in Kansas. I can't tell in the pic, is it an Eastern or Rio? I posted it as an Eastern.

You are correct!
Eastern, from East Central KS.
I shot him at 8:30am and needed to head out quick to meet up with some friends to scout some other land. I had to clean it and toss it on ice in about 10 minutes. so I just snapped what I could before heading out.

Will be out a few more times and I will take much better picts.

Thanks
Don

The contest won't end until the very end of May or early June. There will be some seasons open up north til the end of May. Lots of hunters in the contest who haven't started hunting yet.

Way to go Donnie B! Nice bird. I called the landowner of the small farm I hunt the other day and I've got a pretty good idea just where the birds are roosting. I've got a few more spots to scout and still a couple weeks before the season starts.

I just got back from Boston where my daughter was sworn in to the Navy today. She left for basic training right afterwards. I'm one proud dad right now.
