4 more to go........ If someone wants to step up and be Captain - hey great. While I will be busy with this contest - well it comes and goes.......I just input the scores and have a self made excel spreadsheet that does all the calculations!

What ever you boys and gals decide is fine with me......as you know I am here to help......

JW would be great if he would not mind doing it. Zim would also be good with me.

Hey JW, Where do you hunt? I am in your hood often. I inspect post offices for construction repairs and have 3 in Racine on my facility list. Many surrounding there also, and most of Milwaaukee. But I turkey hunt SW Wisconsin.

Anyone else going to hunt with a bow? Thinking I will try it out. What are you shooting 'manofthefall'? Im going to be using my mission venture and Magnus bullheads. If I can't connect with that ill have the trusty 12 gauge for backup!

I hunt with a Diamond Edge. It's fairly compact as it is really a junior model. However, it's set at 60 pounds and has plenty of knock down power. It can go up to 70 pounds and out to 29". I am at 27 1/2". I am in an area with a fairly large number of turkeys. I will put one down for sure, but I'm really hoping to get a nice big one this year. My biggest so far was like 18 pounds and a 4 1/2" beard. I am a fairly new turkey hunter but am liking it more each year.

Really!! Well then we gotta meet up for coffee.......I do not hunt SE WI at all but do hunt Zone 1 Mauston to Reedsburg and then back up to Camp Doulgas to Oakdale and do hunt Fort McCoy.

I am in West Racine when home....

And I want to use the cross bow I have now.

Well good luck to you, hope you get a bigger bird. I'll be happy with any bird but Ill hold out for the 1st couple weeks for a big'un. Im going to be using my Mission Venture set at 27.5" and 65 lb. I actually want to try bumping up my draw length to 28.5" and see how that gets me.
