#1 Northern WI bird

Postby WillowRidgeCalls » April 30th, 2010, 10:27 am

4-29-10 Took this bird in Zone 7. It was a cold morning at 19 degrees with 25mph wind, with gust 35-40mph, like to froze to death out there. Shot him at 32 yards, he was gobbling his head off and I couldn't hear him because of the wind. Got him with aggressive cutts and yelps. Burrrrrr still cold [&:]

Congratulations, Scott.  That's a nice bird. Sounds like the weather conditions were pretty brutal.  I hope the weather decides to warm up for you for the next one.
Good luck.
