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.

    • Stayed in a Holiday Inn Express last night.
    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
