Story in the team 3 section. so amped and cant wait to get out this Saturday with my best friend Nate, first time i get to go with him, and we got one pinned. Hopefully we get it done :D

Good job fellow!!!! ;) At least someone is getting birds. I know of none up my way. I have not seen, heard a bird all spring. My two honey holes have had birds for the past 10 years and this year ZIP!!! :( :(

That's awesome!! I remember my first bird I killed, it was a jake on Easter morning and I was freakin pumped!! It's a wonderful feeling and I still get that excited every time I kill a bird. Again congrats on a great bird and good luck to you and your buddy hunting this weekend ;)

CONGRADS MOSSY on a fine tom and i hope you and Nate have a great hunt this week end . i'm in the same boat as Doug there seems to be a lack of toms this year i know they're here i see them in the feilds in the afternoon but they don't want to fire up in the morning wayne

Congratulations! A 2 bearded bird, that's awesome.

Been hearing and seeing gobblers during every outing, seems they're being led away by hens. The gobblers that show interest get intercepted. The hens that did come in to the call haven't had a tom in tow.

Just because he isn't gobbl'n, doesn't mean he isn't listen'n!
