ok Ben, if you say so.....this old guy had a great season in the commonwealth, was able to tag out w/ a week to spare, there was that snafu w/the bead misalignment [ stop shaking will ya ] but i guess if you haven't missed, you haven't shot at many [ or at least that's my story and i'm stickin to it ] plan on going out next week w/ some friends, hopefully we can get on one to close the season out w/ a bang.....funny how they all look the same, except for that other turkey in the middle photo.....

Good looking stack-o-gobblers you have there Brian! What are the length of the spurs you have on that one? They look very nice.

Haha thanks Dewey. Now that you mention it, that bird actually had the smaller spurs, that bird had 1 1/8 inch spurs....now the other one that for some reason you cant see the spurs, had 1 1/4 hooks!

Due to being gone a lot and then trying to get caught up at work when I was around home, I have not been able to participate much on the forum. I thought I would share a few thoughts and pictures of my season.

I may have set a personal record for days hunting this year. I believe I was out 27 days this spring, starting in Georgia, where my son Ryan and I hung out for five days with Bobby Parks and tenptr. Had a great time and want to thank Bobby and Zach for putting up with us for several days. This is the gobbler I took on the second day of that hunt.
Image
Next, seven of us headed for Oklahoma for their opener on April 6th. We hunted five days there. I barely managed to kill a bird on the last morning of the hunt. In fact, I didn't even have time to get some good pictures of my gobbler before we loaded up and headed back to NM. This was my highest scoring bird of the season. The picture is lousy but it's the best I could do after getting back home.
Image
Our NM season started on April 15th, and I was able to spend 17 days afield here, some of that hunting for myself,...and a lot helping other hunters. I managed to take two nice Merriams gobblers, and got to watch a few others get their birds. Here are my two birds from NM.
Image

Image
All in all, it has been another great season. I got to hang out with some really great folks, made some more new friends...and I managed to harvest four gobblers,....and if the truth be known, I should have killed at least two more really good birds that I let get away unscathed due to my tendency to want to enjoy the show more than kill a bird.

I hope each of you has had a memorable spring, as well. ...And for those that are still out hunting,...go get'em!

Here are two birds for my 2011 season with my personal best beard length 1st pic stats are 21lbs 12 3/8 beard and 1 1/4 spurs, second bird is 20.6lbs 10 9/16 beard 1 3/8 spurs.....its been good but tuff. Not much in the way of gobbling in the areas I hunt but still able to make it happen, good luck to all and be safe.
