I got that beauty into my truck before I asked who I had to pay. I guess that is my latest acquisition.
Thought you promised Linda no more shotguns.............

Sure am glad to here that. Once every five years isn't to much to ask for. Maybe now you can get those turkey's to stay there till spring.

Maybe if your lucky you can shoot that field some more if not to many other places for them to feed. Long time ago we hunted a field close to the house that had about 200 birds working two weeks after opening day. Had a great shoot and all of us shot about 100 doves that first day. Come back the next weekend since we were watching the field some and maybe saw 50 birds working during the week but on Saturday it was well over 100 birds working that evening shoot.

We hunted that field every Saturday afternoon for 6 weeks straight. We figured we killed 400 birds out of that field that year. It seems just about every bird we took out got replaced the next week. Shooting also got dang hard as they wised up really had to camouflage and stay still like duck hunting. There was always a mob of about 30 birds that hit that field all at once from different angles on 4 or 5 different times each hunt. It would be furious shooting for 10 minutes straight then nothing. And 20 minutes later another flight would hit. It was like they had a coordinated attack plan to take the field. Seems like when we left there was always about 20 birds still flying and I guess their activity brought in the others.

BTw we did not bait this field it was essentially a hay field with round bails. It was really confusing but we figured there was millet seeds strewed when they cut that hay mixed in with the bermuda that left plenty of feed for them to keep coming in. Knew the guy that bailed it and scalped the grass trying to get as much as he could. It also did not rain and that grass stayed real low.
