Great mount!!! Went out scouting twice this weekend. No turkeys have moved to our farm yet which is typical. Anyway I found 8 sheds on Friday and 3 more on Sunday. It was the most I have ever found. Ill try to get some pics when the wife gets home from work.

Wyo---Ya I know I feel lucky to find that many. LOL The biggest one I found both sidesof and should be real nice. It already is an 11 pointer with a split brow tine. Nice mass as well. I will try to get some pics up to show ya. I only found a couple that were real small like spikes or forks. Most of them were okay. Squirells(sp) or mice had gotten to a couple of them.

Glad you guys are seeing some birds. Been pretty slow for me. Some close by but not on our property. They always seem to show up during season so I hope it works out that way again!
