  1. Congrats Wanderer! Thanks once again Borch for doing this.
  2. This was the shot my daughter put on a nice bird. Unbelievably, it bounced right of of his skull. He walked away shaking his head!
  3. WTG Sniper! I may have seen a pic. Congrats to you guys on a fun trip!
  4. I tagged out on day 2 of the 2020 season. I wish I could have had my son or daughter with me, but it was a "school day" (whatever that is in these strange times), so they both slept in. This is my first double bearded bird! I included the length of both birds and I believe the sum of the two beards is the score that is to be included, but I listed them separately and the sum, but I believe it's the total that is used for the score. Nice job Wallydog!
  5. Scoot is too! Woulda been a double if I could have brought Ryan or Morgan with me.
  6. Hit 'em low, watch 'em go. Hit 'em high, watch 'em die. Low shots frequently result in a lost bird. Forward or back, if it's low you have to get a bit lucky to recover the bird. Lots of examples of when it worked out with a low shot, but tons where it doesn't. Turkey anatomy is weird IMO and lots of people aim lower than they realize they should (might not be applicable to this situation, but it's common). Bummer on the bird- stinks to hit them and not recover them, but like DonBo said- they're really tough and it happens a lot, unfortunately.
  7. Borch that's what it looks like to me. I'm still seeing birds (when I actually see them) in transition areas in between winter areas and where I usually see them during the season.
  8. My scouting isn't going very well. I've seen a couple groups of gobblers, but they seem to be "here today, gone tomorrow". They obviously don't go too far, but I am sure struggling to locate them consistently. Frustrating!
  9. Saweet! Thanks for doing this, Borch! I just signed up Ryan, Morgan, and me. It's looking like this may be a year when we can get out in the woods a fair bit. I hope so!
  10. My son shot a bird with a nap spitfire max at 52 lbs (I think). It worked fine. I still prefer loppers, but there's no wrong answer. I suggest you study kill zone/turkey position if you haven't already. Tons of birds are hit and lost because people are aiming at the wrong spot! Hit em high watch em die, hit em low watch em go. Good luck Minky!
