Very nice bird spoiler...It scores 61.25. I'm guessing you put in the spur lengths wrong because they have the most effect on score.

My morning started off promising but ended with a big thunderstorm coming in. I set up on a logging road that runs a ridge and had a few birds below me gobbling. I snuck down the ridge a bit in the half dark and set up. I ended up one ridge over from the bird I was targeting. I saw him fly down and strutting but I couldn't get him to come the 100 yards or so.

Later on about 7:30 I got on a hot bird who was gobbling to every rumble of thunder. I got set up within 100 yards, never saw him but he sounded close and then the lightening and dark clouds rolled in. The bird shut up and I got the heck out of Dodge.

Tomorrow is supposed to be a nice day so I am going to set up in the same location and give it another go.

Im back from my hunt this week and have a bird in hand. Shot him on Wednesday at 615 am. It couldnt have been a more perfect hunt. Roosted him the night before,answered every call and came in gobbling and strutting right to the decoy where I shot him at 12 yards. My friend got it on video also.

And boy was he a big one !! My heaviest and biggest beard to date.

28lbs, 12" beard, and 1" spurs = 72

Not quite sure why his spurs werent any bigger his legs and feet were twice the size of a normal bird. I cant complain though.

I took several pics with the scale to verify. This was the lightest at 28.2 with the heaviest at 28.6.

Way to go! Very nice bird...very nice indeed. It's stories of hunts like yours that got me revving to hunt MO next year. A few more toms and we got a shot at winning this season. I'm an '07 Tominator too...

LET'S GO FAN-ADDICTS!!!!!
