DTC, you need to get your priorities straight. Take the whole day off.

Well the rain held out long enough. Birds were henned up early and didn't want anything to do with a call. About 8:30 they fired back up and started gobbling again. I finally got him to answer me twice and then I gave him the ole silent treatment. 25 minutes later he gobbled and they were about 50 yards, his next gobble about 30, and his final gobble was at 18 steps. I was shocked when I saw 4 toms strolling. I took my "pick" of the litter. 20 1/2 lbs, 11 1/2" beard, and 7/8" spurs. I can tell we had a rough winter, this is one of the smallest weight birds I've killed on that farm in about 10 years.

Good job DTC. Your bird scores 61.That gives us a total score of 699.0875 ( 11 birds ) and a best bird per hunter score of 337.825. Five of us have killed at least one bird. Hopefully we'll here from everyone else pretty soon. Now go get you another bird DTC.

Thanks guys!!

Donnie I bought those new Winchester XR shells, very impressed with them. The pattern at 40 and 50 yards is crazy good!!

I can't hunt again until the 28th, MO only allows 1 bird in the first week. DTC Jr and I will be looking to get back after them. The 10 day forecast has lots of rain in it.
