E.P.'s Oscillated Turkey

Postby Cut N Run » May 13th, 2008, 1:15 pm

I have been attempting to post this for weeks but lack of computer skills on my part prevented it.
 
This is a picture of one of my best friends (since we were kids) on the planet pictured with an Oscillated turkey he killed in Guatemala a few weeks ago to complete his World Slam.  I wanted to post this because lots of folks won't ever see an Oscillated much less get the chance to hunt one. (if I only ever get Easterns, and that's fine with me) 
 
Congrats on your World Slam Buddy!  Looking forward to hunting again next year.

Could somebody who knows how please fix this so that when you open the post the picture appears?  It just shouldn't be this difficult. Thx.

howdy cut n run,
first, congrats to your buddy on his world slam...secondly, after you download the pic, check the box that says "embed pic in post" or something like that. it took me forever to finally figure it out....

This should do it-

Jim- I can't edit your post to show the pic, so I copied it and posted it here.
Easy to do. We'll assume the picture is stored on the hard drive of your PC.
1. click on "embed picture in post" box at bottom of window where you compose a post.
2. Click on "upload picture"
3. Click on "browse". This will take you to the directory for all of the files on the hard drive of your PC. Find the pic you wish to post and "double click" on it.
4. You will get an "uploading" message for a few seconds and then it should say "file uploaded successfully". You're done. Complete your post as usual.

Give it a try and post any questions you may have.

Thanks Jeff!
 
I plan on going over your post a few hundred times until I have it memorized and can do it in my sleep (then it will be time to change the site again, right?).
 
I'm embarrassed to say how long I spent to get that picture posted.  E.P. says he has a better picture of that bird too, so I may not be done yet.
 
By the time next Spring rolls around (or maybe the Fall season) I hope to be able to post my own pictures without training wheels.
 
Thanks again for the help, it is much appreciated.
 
**Hint**
 Perhaps there should be a step by step instruction page here on how to post pictures (for those of us with a great love of Turkey hunting who desire to share our pictures with fellow hunters and do not possess a great deal of computer skill) like say in the "Picture Posting Help Section".
 *just a suggestion*
 
 It could just be me, but I'm stupid about some things.  On the other hand, my Brother is a computer magician, then & again, he wouldn't know where to start in the Turkey woods.
See what I'm sayin'?

I wanted to bump this back up to the top so everyone could have a look at the pair of Oscillated turkeys my buddy E.P. got in Guatemala a couple of years ago.  The taxidermist did a great job on both.
 
Check out the daggers on the standing mount.
