Default am i just crazy???

I want to start by sayin im a hardcore turkey hunter. I often have nightmares that I oversleep opening morning of turkey season, so maby that will help the rest of this post not sound so rediculas.

The night before opening morning I take everything off my dining room table. I bring all my decoys, calls, gun, shells, clothing, boots, vest, even underpants in to the dining room and spread it out over the dining room table, so it is right there when I get up in the morning. Now this is the part im kinda emmbarased about. As I said I am terrified of missing opening morning so I set 7 alarms. I use a mixture of alarm clocks, my phone, and some windup clocks. the sun rises at 6:30 in sw mo durin spring season, but I set all my alarms for 4:00. I get dressed and sit in my chair and drink coffe until 5:00. and after all that I finally get to turkey hunt.

so my question is. do other people prepare like this, or am I just crazy?

I do the very same thing, only my fear is usually that I will forget something important. Gun, ammo, proper clothing, decoys, food and water. My nightmares usually involve having a turkey come in and suddenly realize I forgot to bring ammo for my gun. I always triple check for ammo. The turkeys are also usually about ten feet tall in those dreams as well.

Somebody please help me with my addiction!

Yup, your pretty crazy ---but there are lots of
us out there that in our own way are right there
with you. Best of luck this spring. By the way
my lucky number is 13---so you might want to change
your number of alarm clocks---smile.
