Team #15: BEARD>BUSTERS

Recommended Posts

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:

I brought him home at dusk, but the girls wanted to come out and see him in their pajamas anyway:

You guys were very lucky to have him on your team, a great hunter and mentor to all of us on here. You will be missed David! :(

I see from Buckee's article that David was finishing his residency. I have friend who is also about to graduate from her residency. It is without a doubt the most busy time for future doctors. They are tying up loose ends at the hospital plus they have to study for their Boards to actually become a doctor. My friend spends every possible free moment reading and studying. She has little time for even her own family. So I can imagine that David was using this time to study and prepare for his career. Any free time was spent with his family. However David did not forget our team and took some of that invaluable free time to bag us a bird for us.

Thank you David, I appreciate it!:(
