Default THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY OF VT

The Good....................I took a 17lb 5" beard 7/16 spured jake late morning! PAhunterman did the calling

The Bad...................My brother got me thumping a long beard this morning on video and he also got me chasing it :'( I rolled him and he flopped around and was just laying on the ground. I unloaded my gun picked my calls turned around to see him flopping over down the field. We looked long and hard but never found him :'(

The Ugly.......................

Thanks for the compliments & condolence. I usally don't waste anytime getting to the birds I shoot. I don't know why I did on this one or even why I unloaded my gun. I've shot at birds before and missed which is fine but this hitting them hard and not getting them just makes me sick.

A very nice shot of New England countryside.

Good going on the harvest, sorry to hear about the others escape. I would like to see a clip of the video if at all possible... even the worst day huntin' is always better than a good day workin'. I'll let you know how things pan out here. It's not been very productive this first week, not for a lack of trying mind you, but I'm keeping my hopes up. Congrats again bud.
