Tagged out in MO! I had an awesome hunt this morning. Got on a bird that gobbled his but off. Once he flew down I could tell he and his hens were headed to a big field. I got in front of them and when I called he gobbled and so did another gobbler. I could tell both birds were coming in. I finally see a bird enter the field about 70 yds strutting. He finally cut the distance to 40 yards and I was thinking about ending it but was enjoying the show. He was in a field, what could go wrong?? All of a sudden he breaks out of strut and runs off. I was dumbfounded as to what just happened. From my left I see a bigger bird running in strutting. I finally got him stopped and let him have it. 24 lbs, 1 5/16" spurs, and a 9 3/4" beard. I will post a pic later today. Now if I can only get DTC Jr on another bird.

Awesome bird DTC. Your bird scores 69.75. That will replace your previous high score. Just make sure you post a picture here so I can post the score on the score thread. Congrats

Pretty bird. Are you planning on hunting another state?
