Good by me......Gives Jim more work to do so he can hunt less...unless we're on the same team..and then ...no...bad idea[:)]


As for the individual species score I can easily keep track of it just to help Jim out. As long as people put their score on their harvest report I can creat a thread titled largest turkey and I can edit the post whenever someone posts their score.

Is anyone here actually hunting an Oscellated or Goulds?


It does not look like it unless some Migrate to Detroit Lakes MN, then I may have a chance.[:D]

...and just what are the Minn birds averaging in weight?


I have seen some Easterns where I hunt that are 10 feet tall and approximately 75 pounds, LOL-jk[:D]. I have harvested 2 Easterns that were 23 and 23.5 pounds respectively and I have seen some that are bigger than that. I think the average Eastern in MN is probably 18-22 pounds, kind of an estimated guess.

I will create a thread under General Discussion titled "Official Top Species Score Award" and I will update it whenever someone posts under that thread their species and its official NWTF score.

Sounds good to me, Duane.  Whatever we can do to make this contest more entertaining for everybody, then I'm all for it.  At some point, we'll have to make sure everybody knows how to properly score their birds.
