HI JPH

Looks like he has two birds over his shoulder and you have one.
Might be something to this "OLD SCHOOL STUFF" after all.[:D]

LOL! Are you kidding me? Mr. Old Timey has me beat in every category!

Cool hat, manly mustache, steely eyes, and a sweet rifle. I can't compete with that! I just hope my wife does not see him.

No, no you got it all wrong! He's "old timey"!

He got up at 2:00 am and roasted coffee over an open fire and fried up biscuits and gravy over a cast iron skillet. He then greased the skillet and spread out the coals. He knelt in quiet prayer (and they were good Southern Baptist prayers too), before heading into the forest primeval, navigating by starlight. 

At the first hint of light he crouched against a wide tree trunk and waited. A distant turkey gobbled. Our hero knew that he could get closer to the tom before the sun rose, but he chose to remain put in order to be sporting about it. As the turkey pitched from the roost, a mile away, the "old timey" sportsman clucked once on his handmade box call. Two hours later he made three soft yelps with a wingbone call and was answered by a second gobble, this time only a half-mile away. He knew knew better to call again, as this would most certainly scare off his quarey. Fourty five minutes later the wairy old tom eased through the forest, walking on egg shells. Our gentleman hunter placed one expert shot though the eyeballs and laid the king of the woods to rest.

Not certain where the second bird came from. He must have caught it's leg in an old bed spring with cracked corn spread under it and beaten it to death with a club. That's another "old timey" tactic. [:D]

Dang it JPH you tell a story almost as good as TOM KELLY.
Never tried the bed spring yet heck I never even heard of that one before will have to give it some thought.
Does the corn go on the bed spring or under it?
If it works you should be able to get a bunch of them if you use a king size spring,sure beats 5.00 a shot.
