Hey! JosephBoeckner

Get your turkey yet? I went out this morning, saw a jake and five hens. Had wind gusts of 34-45 mph, looked like a scene from "Tumbleweeds Attack". Went home about 10:00 empty handed. There's always tomorrow!

Went out again today, not so much as a gobble. Leaving for Texas in the morning - spur of the moment thing. Limit; 4 turkey and all the feral hog you care to shoot.
Later!

When puns are outlawed, only outlaws will have puns.

Hey,

They can't outlaw puns, I have a medical condition.

I am an invertabrate punster.


SPINELESSLY unable to resist a pun!

My WI Turkey tags are for May 1-5. Will try to post, but I fly to Texas on May5, so it might take some time to post.


Later,
Gfrey

yep

it was alot of fun and they had a table that people and organizations donated stuff for prizes-like if u placed in stuff they call off the first blackpowder aggrigate scores in the divisions and then 2nd etc etc for all the stuff-and the first thing i grabbed was a nice piece of leather that was about 3.5x1.5 ft rectanglish shape-and then later i grabbed pyrodex,a ball bag, gun rack, etc etc but it was awesome -cant wait till next year
