Default OK, here it is

I missed. Waited till the bird pitched down, called three times, he answered 3 times, came in on a string. He got in the open pines and he got nervous and I rushed the shot. 35-40 yds.

No excuses. I suck.

That is all

LMFAO!!!

First time I ever went down there to turkey hunt, I missed my first turkey, actually wounded him, but oh well, the outcome was the same, I never put my hands on him!!!

First time GT ever went down there, he wounded a doe and couldn't find her.................. He was at the Farm too. I was down the road at the Trailer where I screwed the pooch on that gobbler...

Man......... That bird you missed could have been the one sporting 1.5" or better hooks................ Sorry...

Oooops.... GT was at the Trailer not the farm where he kankled the doe....

At least that big bastard is still alive out there and maybe I can get a crack at him!

My favorite conversation of the weekend:


Boink: "DuffyB, tell me about how it happened. Again"

Me: I tell the story

Boink: "Did it make you mad?"

Me: "Well, I threw my thremacell about 30 yds"

Bunyun: "Did you hit anything with your thremacell?"

Those 2 are getting a bit mellow in their older age...

DuffyB, you were getting off easy...
