    Man I am thinking about these damn birds... bought some turkey shells today... pretty sure it is gimmick but damn expensive for a box of 5. practicing with the stick and slate... grabbing a hog tag just in case... Anyone else planning on going?

    There’s a bird that haunted me last year. He was the boss. Missing a single feather two over from center of his fan. I had a few semi close encounters with him but would always have a tractor come through or some other bs and Not be able to seal the deal.

    I saw him Monday afternoon, he is the target

    You bet I’ll be out! I have some unfinished business with a bird that eluded me twice last year, real old mature Tom.

    Rios for the most part. I know of a couple of spots with "Merriams" but they're definitely a likely mix with Rios.
