    nice bird man. im dieing to find a new spot. i lost my spot for this year. im still lookin so if anyone has any land they hunt and wants to share a hunt with someone let me kno. i was plannin on missin school wednesday and goin but i called the guy tuesday to make sure it was ok to go out there still and he told me that he let his buddy have promission, after giving me promission since early archery for deer. i dunno, its his land and i cant do anything about it so all i can do is look for anew ground i guess. but none the less, awesome bird. hopefully i get a chance like that this year. good luck everyone.
