took the daughter out this morning,was setting in the blind watching a hen trying to beat up my newly mounted hen when a jake walked up to get in on the action.i asked her if she wanted to shoot it or wait till a longbeard came out.she opted for a long beard so i decided to take some picture.well i got in front of her and looked to my left and there stood a gobbler no more than four foot away from the blind in full strut.he has slipped in from behind us.well i tried to get out of her way but in the process i stepped on the 20 ounce empty coffe cup and it made a heck of a racket which spooked the bird and then when my daughter heard the noise she kinda gave me a push and a evileye.but i had not recovered from the coffe cupand was still off balance and lets just say i tried a make a new door in the blind walls which made all the turks take out like heck.we didn''t get no turkey but i bet she will remember this hunt forever.i think i heard say a cussword but she denies it.well i am in the doghouse for sure.promised her she could skip school on opening day of regular season if she doesn't have any test seemed to cheer her up some.what can i say [email protected] happens.:horse:

I dang near blew it for my boy on saturday morning. The way we set up, there was a little dip in the road about where I thought the tom was gonna come out of the woods so I stayed standing up behind the trees he was sitting against with my head between the two trees so I could talk to him. I figured this would let me see the turkey when he couldnt and help prepare him for the shot and the trees were covering me pretty well. Well, when the tom did as many toms do and did something I didnt plan on by trying to skirt around us, he was about to get a good profile of me from the side right before Dustin busted him.

Sorry for the bad luck, maybe you two can tag team a couple opening day.
