    Lets see how many Longbeards the K5 family can bag this season. Post up spurrs, weight, and beards.

    I had a terrible season last year- Nada one. All I could find were tracks.

    Haven't been able to get out and get after the birds yet, but I did bag me a poacher already. Friggin a**es drive up and down our road and take pot shots out of their vehicle. I mighta left 'em alone if they hadn't shot three times right in front of my house. Grrrr. Can't wait to get me a bird though!! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Our season starts in about 7 hours. I can't wait.....what a rush calling in that gobbler (thinking he's gonna get some arse) and bam, the hammer drops! I probably won't sleep tonight.

    Sounds like I might would have more fun sitting in the edge of the woods and taking pot shots at them there poachers! You only have to do it once, they won't come back...trust me./forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    Anyway good Luck! Maybe I'll be posting sum pics tommorrow of som dirtysouth big birds. /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif

    Nothing worse than a low-life [darn] poacher screwing it up for all of us honest hunters. Scumbags !!! /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    I found where the birds were roosting friday evening (powerline) set up in the wrong field saturday morning, then set up in the right field sunday morning and shot a tom less than a minute after he flew down from the roost. I was back at grandmother's house before sunrise /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif

    Got another one today. This is the smallest one I've ever killed but after all the work I went through for it, it was ok with me. Well two down, two tags to go, bowhunting time. I only have two weeks left in the season, but the mating is all done and the goblers are hangin out with goblers so hunting's a little tougher, but I'll see what I can do /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    Actually the first and third I didnt make a single call. I had them roosted and killed the first one a few weeks ago like a minute after he flew down from the roost and the third, this morning was in almost exactly the same place and the same situation. Same group of hens with a new big daddy
