Season here starts the 25th but I won't get out probably til the 30th because me being a committee member on our local NWTF chapter, has our banquet on the 28th so I know it will not be an early morning on the 29th. DTC, I'm going to go a little more dramatic this year on my hunts. I'm going to them! And before anyone starts flippin me crap, I just want to say its AWESOME! I did this last year with a gun but this year, I want to try with the bow. Just me, my weapon and a tailfan. Quick story from last year. I was switching to a mid morning spot, carrying my pretty boy down an access road when a group of birds came out, seen me and took off. I dropped the decoy and grabbed the fan, paralleled them in a ditch and spotted them in a cut field. I flipped the fan in front of myself and started walking to them. They all looked at me and came towards me. I laid on the ground twisting the fan in front of me til a jake came to 5 yards in front of me. I dropped the fan and said boo. He jumped back and tom came running in. Shot him at about 15 yards coming right at me. Holy crap, what a rush!! Now, I am on private land and am aware of the dangers of it but I am going to do it again!! Maybe if I can get someone to go with me, I can get it video taped.

Would love to BDB, but there aren't any merriams close to my area that I know of. I'd like one of those myself.

Let's vote on a team name. Just pick the one you want and highest number of votes wins. The choices are:

Boss Toms
Long Spur Legion
Bearded Bad Boys
The Walking Strutters
Full Fan Fever

My vote goes to Long Spur Legion
