    Had a great morning last Saturday. Got up at 3:30 am to head to the farm and listen for gobblers. Got to hear a bit of gobbling and a raspy ole boss hen yelping. I sat down close to the roosted gobbler but he completely shut up after flying down and didn't see or hear him again. Escaped a close encounter (it came trotting by less than 6 ft. away as I was sitting in predawn light) with a skunk.

    Watered some MDC trees I had planted, and did a bit of chainsaw TSI, removing a bunch of hickory, honey locust and cedars from planted trees. Stopped by the liquor store on the way home. It matched up with a previous nice find. Couple of nice finds 2018.png

    No chew marks??? Maybe the MDC needs to air drop a few greys on your place.

    No, Randolph County MO. I knew I was going to do some work at the farm and decided to go early enough to listen for gobblers in the morning and get an early start on my work.

    I have a bunch of trail camera pics of him the past three years or so. I liked his rack enough to have TechTeacher make a bar mirror of it.

    Couple of nice finds 2018.png Sure a lot of similarities. But that upward sweeping main beam I haven't ever seen on him. Was that pic from 2017 Tony?
