    Got this guy Saturday morning after failing to get him to commit the night before. I spent a good 3 hours trying to get this bird away from his hens on Friday evening, i put him to roost that night and got back in the next morning in the dark, another hour of playing games with him and he finally made one little mistake and the 12 gauge Weatherby took him down. My first Utah bird and a good one at that!

    I think this thread needs to stall out a bit. My oldest daughter can't go for two more weeks yet and my youngest has her week over Memorial Day weekend.

    Was able to connect on this guy mid day. He was out cruising for hens! After some sweet talking and a couple gobbled he committed and the rest is history! This bird was taken with a shotgun in Kansas. Had another tag that I tried with my bow. Came close a couple times but couldn?t make it happen! Great trip!!!

    Drove 15 hours to texas to hunt hogs with a friend on his property there. Had no intention of hunting turkeys but did have the tags. As luck would have it no score on hogs as I missed.
    But my first Tom Turkey. A Nice Rio I caught strutting down the field edge as I was hiking back to camp.
    And likely the only turkey taken with a Ruger 77 in 35 Whelen

    I already posted in the other thread, but I wanted to include everything so I can get entered in the contest. After both my boys tagged out opening day here in Minnesota, it was my turn to try killing a bird with the bow. So, second morning of season, I had close to a dozen birds gobbling within 150 yards of me in the dark. Had 4 jakes come into 10 yards, and a little later 2 big toms run straight in to 30 yards and then turn quickly and walk away. Then at 7:30, 2 mature birds came to 22 yards and I shot the bigger one. It flew away, and I recovered my arrow, and other than feathers, there was no sign of a hit. Long story short, ended up putting another arrow through the same bird the next morning and filled my tag. Not glamorous, but that?s hunting sometimes.Click image for larger version.

    It's been a tough year to get out, since I've mostly been working on our new property, so we can get a shop built. But, I was able to get out before work and find a Jake that was willing to come take a look

    YETI Rambler Giveaway!!!

    I have been out a few times and gotten skunked every time. Yesterday morning I had a gobbler coming in on the string from several hundred yards out until an oil worker work drove by and the gig was up. I hiked about 6 miles and only heard a few gobbles. Very disappointed to lose this one opportunity. The oil exploration is really screwing up my local hunting.

    Literally skunked!!
