    I got one at 6:30 this morning and went back at around 2 this afternoon and came home with my second tag filled! I was even able to video all of both hunts, they're pretty cool.:) They weighed in at 18-19 pounds and both had 9 1/2 " beards.

    Benton county Missouri has a strong population of turkey's this year. I took out my first one of the this season today using a Ford F-150 1/2 ton 4 wheel drive truck doing about 60mph. The critter flew right into me.

    I am sure it was a beautifull creature prior to impact after which not much was left.

    I was able to fill my first tag in Kansas this morning. Not the largest bird I have taken but any longbeard is a good one. He measured in at 20.5 lbs 1" spurs and an 11" beard. Going after his dad in the morning.

    I am 69 years old and have been turkey hunting for two years. Last year I missed a gobbler at 25 yards but my son-in-law who was sitting beside me got the bird. This year I shot a 21 lb Tom with a 10.5 inch beard and 1.25 inch spurs. My son-in-law shot a jake the day before so we both filled our tags.

    My dad, brother, and I went out on Saturday morning and took two turkeys. My dad shot a little 18 pounder and my brother shot a 21lb and 10 ounce turkey. It was my brothers first ever and my dads second. My dads beard was 12 inches and my brothers was 10-10.5 inches. The spurs on my dads were between 3/4 and 1 inch and my brothers were between 1/2 and 3/4 inches. I didnt get a shot, but im goin out this weekend and hopefully will have some luck. I shot one in the same place last year that weighed 23lb and 10 ounces. I hope to get a bigger one this year.

    Went out yesterday on the Md. opener and took a gobbling jake then headed out to the river and caught a few small blue cats. Guess it was little guy day.

    So far no turkeys. :crying: I have had several tick bites and got to witness an amazing lightning show. The snakes are our too and I find myself scouting for deer more than hunting for turkeys.
    I think I may have poison ivy but not too bad. Now I remember why turkey hunting is not my favorite. lol If anyone in the Louisville area would like to show me how to turkey hunt please let me know.

    Hello Derby,

    I am new here and was surfing some old posts.

    To prevent ticks, I spray my closes with permitrin. It comes in several ways. One is Permanone spray can and also in quart bottles you attach to water hose for spraying your yard. I forget the product name but read the labels and search for permitrin.

    At the beginning of the season, I lay all my camo in the yard and spray it down with the yard spray. I do not get ticks even tough I sometimes sleep on the ground during the day.

    For the poison ivy, just plain bleach. It burns but soak the blistered area as long as you can stand the burn. The next day the ivy will be dried up.

    Hope you finally got a bird.

    R.D.

    I only could miss one day of class and all I got was mosquito bites.

    Not my best year.
