We'll see if I can keep the streak alive. I have second season in WI. That will be the earliest I've ever hunted and may mess with my mind a little as I generally prefer the last 2 seasons.

Good Luck to all those chasing the mighty Tom this spring...

A great year a side from the fact it rained or was misty the whole time we were there. The locals are great and a guy just flagged us down and told us about this area. It was aways from town but well worth the drive. I am already counting the days till I can go next year..

O.K. team.... 2 down 3 to go...

Short hunt this year... 25 minutes, called a hen and two strutters into Stella my decoy and took this fella...

Tale of the tape, 10 " beard, 7/8" spurs and 21.2 pounds...

I was happy I was able to pull this one off. Almost thought I may need to miss this years hunt... work has got me bogged down, but stayed at the office till 11:00 last night, loaded up my truck and went to bed at midnight. Got out to the field and couldn't find my calls in my vest... but I checked my other vest and there they were... put the choke in the gun and walked out to the 'killing field' as my buddy so eloquently calls it. Called a bossy ol hen in at 5:50 and at 5:55 had 2 strutters 13 yards from me... God I love this sport! Never have hunted this early before, the birds were REALLY receptive to the calls.

Hope everyone else finds success!

I feel real good about going 3 for 3 with the first three of us.

Its time to lay the smackdown on these other teams and show them who the real turkey hunters are.

We maybe have a shot at winning this.

    • Don't worry Chuck......PF has your back.
    • It's just sooooooooo easy.
    • Speaking of Russia:   A timeline of recent events. 11/28/16 - " Trump’s campaign took him up on it in March. From those meetings, Nunes grew close with retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, a top Trump hand who has just been nominated to be the president-elect’s national security adviser. 2/13/- 1) Flynn gets recorded by Intel agencies, we know he discussed sanctions and 2) it was part of a "Peace Plan" involving Cohen, Sater and a Ukranian named Alex Oronov 3) who is now dead. 2/16 - Flynn faces no FBI charges Source 3/20 - Comey announces FBI investigation into members of Trump campaign. Repubs, including Nunes, spend a great deal of it concerned about Unmasking of Flynn from incidental collection. Source 3/22 - Nunes spends his week freaking out about possible incidental collection he's been told about from an unknown source, immediately warns Trump. Source Now to go back to January, Who happened to be at the Breakfast with Flynn in January involving Turkey? Nunes. Where did it happen? Trump hotel in Washington. Source  3/22 - The House Oversight Committee on Wednesday requested documents related to ousted National Security Adviser Michael Flynn from the White House, FBI, Department of Defense and Office of the Director of National Intelligence. Source 3/22 - Schiff now claims there's "More than circumstantial evidence of Collusion (Unrelated to Nunes new info) Source 3/23 - CNN story drops that "The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign, The FBI is now reviewing that information, which includes human intelligence, travel, business and phone records and accounts of in-person meetings ." Source 3/24 - Nunes cancels 2nd open hearing with Intel Committee, seemingly for no reason. Source - Albeit today we learned Sally Yates was going to talk about Michael Flynn at this hearing. 3/24 - Manafort, Stone and Page all more or less simultaneously agree to speak with Intel Committee. Source 3/24 - National Inquirer (owned by Trump's friend) very oddly throws Flynn under the bus. Source 3/25 - Claim that Flynn may have cut a deal Source It seems Flynn may be spilling the beans here, which would not bode well for Trump.   Also I didn't even get to today's news about Kushner and Russia.     What do we know VEB? It ran a spy ring in New York City. Here's another fun coincidence:     Prosecuted by our now removed district attorney.
