Okay, so where's my invitation, Charlie? We've got a big spring turkey announcement coming up very, very soon and if you've got a place to hunt, you might want to let us know. C'mon Charlie--you want in?

Hey Gerry who's hijacking? This is Wisconsin things are different here; there are times when it is hard to shoot around all the turkeys to get your deer. Alex had an 83 turkey problem. Someone has to address this turkey problem may as well be me. ;-D))

I get a good laugh out of your Snoopy Dance posts every time Charlie! Way to go man. Sounds like self-defense! Keep in touch. . . .

Steve feathers rule with me more than they use to; I'm still conflicted; now it depends on the day and today it was a flock of 50+ turkeys charging into this orange vested hunter to regroup that took priority; when the smoke cleared 2 lay still with feathers rippling in the breeze.
Nice way to open second turkey season.

Good job; You captured the essence of gun deer season in WI. Let your Dad know I agree with him in #12 it is really his deer.;-D My son showed up to pull the trigger also. He sat in one of my bow stands- 20 minutes into opening day shot a 165 B&C 11point buck at 20 yards. Like I said it was set for a bow. I told him the same thing your Dad told you. But rest assured neither one of us would have wanted it any other way.

Feathers rule man, but I love the deer stories my buds tell. And that gifted venison is delicious. Later! S.

Boy Steve, deer really don't do much for you, always thinking of the feathers aren't you?

Hey Steve,

Oh yeah we got turkeys. On the drive up I stopped and talked to a farmer who said he had once counted 83 turkeys in his field at one time (but you know how those numbers get inflated).
