Opening morning Southern Illinois, 4th season tag. First turkey and did it solo. Couldn't have worked out any better except maybe someone actually there to high-5!!

Hey Josh,

Congratulations on your Southern Illinois gobbler! I'd have been very glad to have "High 5've" you. We're in Jackson County.

That's a fine looking bird. I'm glad you had such success and wish you much more.

Thanks,
Clark

Thanks Clark, I was in St. Clair county, but ran the ridges in Union Co. with a friend for a successful hunt... beautiful country!

Thanks McLean County...AT&T high-5 excepted!
