Morning, especially at first light when the gobblers start to hammer away up on the roost. Gets the blood a pumping good! The woods start to wake up with all the other types of birds start to chime in.If you get a good calm morning with no wind,it's awesome! But with that being said, I've killed more birds between 9:00 and noon then right around fly down time.

Gotta be morning. Hearing those gobblers at first light is amazing. Plus, every bird I have killed was before 9:30.

Just can't beat being there when first light comes, watching the world come to life. The turkey gobbles of the spring woods are an added plus. Can't beat it!

That being said, like paintbrush, I've shot more birds later in the day...guess it's all good.

First light for me too.

The thrill of having Pepe LePue walk within a couple feet or the racoons fighting, rooster pheasants drumming at first light, and of course the main reason we're out there and everything the turkeys do first thing in the morning.

I've been known to be out an hour or better before legal shooting hours. The woods can go from dead silence to a gradual "coming to life" party.

You gotta love it.

My favorite time is morning I like to bring first timers out take them to my secret spot fill them with doubt about how lucky we would be to even here a gobble sneek into the blind a hour and half before shooting time still filling them with doubt knowing whats going to happen then when the first animals first start moving give a few soft yelps and the blind start shaking from multiple toms rolling gobbles like thunder within 100 yard to see the look on their faces still makes me giggle. Cant wait drawn for the first week its gonna be good

    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.
