    Brianboh if my wife reads this and finds out that I don't have to kill all these birds in one year you're gonna be in trouble man! I'm looking forward to seeing some new country this year, and she might take back a few of the kitchen passes she has given me.

ID:	18628Level one complete. Got extremely lucky and killed a gobbler on day 3 of the Florida hunt. The wind was terrible and made locating birds difficult. Luckily the wife can hear a lot better than me or I would have never found him. It was neat hunting around all of the palm trees, and I'm still trying to identify some of the crazy jungle birds we saw. Also, Osceolas are the wildest wild turkeys I've ever dealt with. The guy working the check station said the panthers are constantly messing with them, and that's why they are so skittish. We saw quite a few big cat tracks on the roads and fire lanes on the WMA while we were hunting. All in all, it was just a cool trip.

    Sorry that I'm smart phone illiterate and the picture is sideways. I'll try to do better next time.

    That's awesome! Congrats on great bird. I'm headed down next week to give them a try. Can't wait!

    Congrats, What area were you in that you were seeing panther tracks?

    Kansas was a "blast" also. Pun intended. My buddy and I killed four longbeards on our trip, and I got to see more turkey in the decoy action than I have ever seen before. It was definitely worth the drive up there. I highly recommend a Midwest turkey hunt to anyone that hasn't been before. Big fun.

    Still having trouble with picture edits. Bahumbug.

    Small victory for me. Finally got a picture to upload correctly.

    The limbhanger was one of the birds my buddy killed. That bird was a stud. The bad part was after he shot that one, a turkey with longer spurs and a bigger beard came in and pranced around the one he had just shot for about 5 minutes.

    Going back to Florida this year, but we will be hunting Easterns in northern Florida. I think that with all the pressure they get, one Osceola may be enough for my lifetime. The wife bought a guided rio hunt in Nebraska at out local RMEF banquet, so I'll be tagging along with her on that hunt also. We're still not finished with deer and duck season here in Louisiana, but I'm looking forward to spring already.

    I'm ready to knock some heads this spring! What are your dates in Nebraska?
    I've been wanting to go up and do a hunt in the SW part of the state, in the first few days of April. The gobbling activity would be awesome! I may do it this year, since Kansas bumped their start date back into mid April
    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.
