  1. Got out today for the first day of youth season. Took my cousin and Uncle with me to some private land by Brush Creek. Called him in a jake right off the roost. For being his 2nd one he got a show. Gobbling and strutting the whole way in. Got his bird back to the truck, took a couple pictures. Then it was my turn. Walked up the road and got a gobble, set up and called in 2 more. Shot the bigger of the 2 which was 17 lbs and a 5 inch beard. I wanted to wait for a bigger one but I just had the itch to bad. Quick day, out of the woods by 7:30.

    good deal, glad to hear it.

  3. Did you take any pics?
  4. Yeah, I still have to get them developed. I went out this morning to scout and hopefully Im gonna have some more pictures tomorrow to go along with the ones I already took. They were really screaming this morning. Got a good look at the one I'm going for. Probably a 3 year old bird. Hes out on the point of a ridge the drops almost straight off both ways. His only option pretty much is too walk the ridge straight out like he did today and I made a nice little ground blind right at the end. Good luck to you guys going out opening day tomorrow.
