Got it done in CT today. Had a bird light up on the roost in the back of the same field I shot my opening day bird. I set up in the same spot, put my decoy in the same place, and worked this bird for a good 45 minutes. He was pretty hung up at the back of the field out of sight for a good while, but I was playing hard to get and he just couldn't resist. He closed the length of the field inside the wood line off to the right, then he came out into the field and strutted his way straight to me. Very glad he took a turn to my decoy, I eased the gun up and dropped him at about 15 yards. 17 Lbs., 9.75 inch beard. One spur was 1.25 inches but the other was messed up and was just a 7/16 inch bump. Very pleased though, I'm 2 for 4 hunts about a week and a half into the season. Got one more CT tag and one RI tag left to fill.

Congrats! Were your opening day bird's stats posted? I don't think it's listed in the team scoring update.

Haven't posted stats on my opening day bird yet. Or the one in the pic. Or the one sitting in my truck from this morning! Got my RI bird at 5:41 this morning. Tagged out in RI, one more tag to go in CT. 3 birds for 5 hunts, not a bad season so far! I'll get to posting pics and stats a bit later.

Gang, so far on the contest, daveco has registered the biggest bird on our team. A longbeard scoring 64.625 NWTF points.

Keep at it guys. RIstrutstopper has dropped a few, and I know we're all eagerly waiting to see the pix and read the stories.

DTC and BB Outdoors...I have stickers for you guys.
