  1. Only got to hunt in MI two days - on the last day during the evening, I called in two jakes on their way from a corn field into their roost and shot the larger of the two. They unexpectedly came in from my right (pretty smart for jakes...), and I shot him at 30 yards from my left shoulder (I payed for that for about 3 days!). He had a 4 1/8" twiggy beard, 1/8" buttons, and weighed almost 17 pounds (he had a gizzard full of seeds and corn that added at least a pound to him!). Sorry I couldn't post quite the bird I posted last year, but it was fun and hopefully this little fella can help the team. Here are a few pics: Me with the bird: I brought him home at dusk, but the girls wanted to come out and see him in their pajamas anyway:
  2. Another bird for Team 15 Beard Busters: Jake I took on Apr 29. 16.9 pounds, 4 1/8" beard, and 1/8" bumps. Me with turkey: Bringing turkey home at pajama time: 4 1/8" Twiggy beard: 1/8" buttons (didn't take picture with ruler as it was uninterprable): Turkey with MI tag: Entry form:
  3. Way to go Ranger... He fellas - sorry for my extensive hiatus from the forum - I've had some pretty hectic things going on. But I was able to bag a bird here in MI - a 17 lb jake - I'll have to post the pictures tomorrow.
  4. I like the green tattered one. BTW, Coles - that girl is A LOT better looking than you...
  5. After reading the title, my question to you Ruth was going to be "Wow, How did that happen?"....
  6. Hello gents - sorry for the little hiatus... I hunted 4 days in TN for the opener without killing a gobbler. I should have taken a nice mature gobbler that was roosted 75 yards across a field directly in front of me, but some knucklehead tromped in right at daybreak and yelped on a box call for 30 minutes straight without stopping once - he had every bird within 3 miles gobbling its head off on the roost, when they finally flew down they scattered like mad. A big cold front came in and the birds shut up and holed up in heavy cover - I was able to call several fairly close but was unable to get them in the crosshairs in the brush - had a lot of fun though and certainly learned a lot. MI season opens next week, and I'm planning a return visit to TN for May. As my 4 yr old daughter says - "we're never giving up on the turkey birds".
  7. Re: season opens tomorrow-figures(pics) OK William - I'm down here in TN with you - gonna hunt the opening week here in the Nashville area - probably gonna hit AEDC, Cheatham, and a few other areas I hunted before.... Good luck.

  11. Re: I need a little help from the ladies [ QUOTE ] My mom made a couple scrunchies once...they aren't hard really. You basically, I think, cut a long piece of material, stitch it so it becomes a tube, put some elastic in the tube, bunch it up and stitch it closed...I think,lol [/ QUOTE ] Wow - that's far more complicated than most operations I perform!

  16. Re: Worship Music I listen to both contemporary and traditional hymns - my bride prefers contemporary and I lean more toward hymns.
  17. Re: The Love of God Our love compared to God's love is grossly puny. Love originates in the heart and soul. I can say that I love God with all my heart, and God knows the sincerity of my heart. But the outward sign of my love for Him is summed up by obedience - "if you love me, keep my commandments". And it is from that standpoint, my unfaithfulness in keeping his commandments, that my love for God pales in comparison to His love for me. All too often am I eager to say that I love Him, but my obedience to Him doesn't always measure up to my boasting!
  18. This passage is very convicting to me - sins of omission are so common in my life, yet I have become "comfortable" with them... They are SINS nonetheless. James 4: 13-17 13Go to now, ye that say, To day or to morrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain: 14Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. 15For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that. 16But now ye rejoice in your boastings: all such rejoicing is evil. 17Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.

  20. Re: Verse of the Day Psalm 61:2 From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I. I love this verse, mainly because it is easy for my sinful heart to be "overwhelmed", and it reminds me that God is my solid refuge.
