Anybody hunting today? If so, how are the birds acting? Good luck if you’re in the field after them.

Was out with Gutpyls. We hiked around the mountain and didn’t hear a single bird. It was hot out.

Unfortunately no. Saturday was probably my last time out this season. Might squeak an evening trip out one last time on the last day of the season but otherwise I'm cooked with kids and work.

Bummer is that if I had one more shot at the first bird he'd be in my cooler right now. I ended up giving my intel to another club member and gave him the road map the flopping the hottest gobbler. He is dead now. Got shot right off the roost this am. Other birds on this property are still killable I think but this bird was the boss Tom and a layup if you were positioned right (which I wasn't on Saturday). He was flying right into a field and had thick woods on 3 sides so he was being forced/funneled into the field at fly down. Oh well... just glad someone got him and next season I will know how to kill them in that spot if another bird sets in there which I'm sure they will since the hens like that spot too. I have that at least. :-)

Just saw the pics but I didn't get any measurements yet. He looked like an "average" to a little above avg. Tom though from the pics I saw. I'd guess 1.25" or so spurs and 10"+ish beard. Bummed I wasn't the one to wax him but gratifying knowing my "road map to success" for killing him was correct.
