Way to go Kenny. Got severe weather, flooding. We cant catch a break in the weather. Most of the places I go are either behind a creek or a spot along the highway that is closed down. Really looking tough for SE MO.

First congrats Kenny. Now my story, I haven't had a chance to shoot a bird for going on three years and having a bad cold I decided not to be fussy this year.


Opening morning started with rain, just has I left my truck. Cross the field I got lucky and another hunter left a pop-up blind set up from last fall. So, I crawl in and get comfortable. Ten minutes before shooting time. I hear two birds sound off from the roost. A couple of soft clucks and yelps and 30 minutes later had to jakes in front me. Shot one of them at thirty yards. He was 15 lbs 14 oz beard 51/4 in. spurs 1/4 in. total score 31.375. The neat thing is the end of the beard looks like it was dripped in beach and is blond.






The next day out still feeling like crap. I called in two more jakes and finished of my season shooting one, what turned out to be the smallest jake, I've ever killed. 13 lbs. 3 0z. beard 3 in. spurs 3/16 in. total 21.0625





My birds won't set any records, but they both scored higher than the birds, I didn't shoot the last two years.

Congratulations on the birds clones!! I am still at camp and the internet connection is terrible so it is hard to get any messages in or out of here. I did see a huge Tom yesterday and my season doesn't open until tomorrow morning! Two birds gobbled like crazy down in back of the camp. I saw one of them and them about a half hour later he walked right in front on the camp. That bird was huge for these parts. Wish me some success as I am itching to put a nightcap on one!! Good luck to everyone out there hunting and hopefully I will have a bird to help the team soon!

Kind of dead hear lately. Anyone having any luck? We have fallen into third place. We need to kill some birds people.

I am still trying to help us out. Nothing but rain here the last. 2 days. I saw 3 big birds yesterday but couldn't get them in for a shot. Today nothing and rain and fog . Tomorrow and Thursday are such to be decent days! Hopefully the turkeys will cooperate and come out and play.

Talk about not catching a break. Our town in SE Mo, just received the highest flooding ever recorded. I had to drive a ways just to make a couple calls and a few texts, so I thought I would chime in. We have been trapped between 2 rivers with closed bridges for last 3 days. Thank goodness for my old trusty generator, been without power for 3 days. Scouted a new spot only to find a ton of freakin hog sign. Guess I can eat bacon,lol. High winds and more heavy rain here for next 3 days. They say river may come back up. Good luck, and congrats to the lucky ones.
