You didn't cause any hassle at all. We did have that in the rules at one point. I have been doing this contest close to 10 years I think and part of the committee the last 7?

Am old and can't remember.
And all lthe other guys can say is No....and we move on. But my thinking it can help in the overrall grand total of all birds taken.....Be nice to win this thing as I might have jinxed this team.....seem to always wind up in second place LOL

Well my plan worked. My hunter NOT. For some reason he did not take the shot. 3 strutting toms in at 15 yards. I kept caching him till they walked out of range.
in fact I know I could have emptied the gun and whacked 3 long beards, one was huge and both jakes.
So frustrating and hard to keep my patience.
But maybe he is not ready. He did ask to hunt another spot but I am reluctant to booger up another bird.
I will wait until my grandson asks.

OK guys, this time it's official (I think). North Carolina swamp gobbler, sat in the rain for 3 days before I finally got one close enough, looked like a drowned rat, tail feathers ripped, thick beard broken off with only a few long strands hanging, and breast area rubbed to the muscles, I think he was mating hard . 3/4" spurs, 9" beard, weighed 17lbs. NWTF score-50
