The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards. Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there. Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in. A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit. Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern). The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times. Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy. A good evening for sure!
Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.
At least my freezer is full.
Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud covers a lot of water but fishing the tea colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today
I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there.
My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
