    Turkeys are like hunting elk accept the weight is considerably less. Good luck!

    I'm shooting a Hoyt Maxxis, with G5 T3 heads. I like a mechanical head for turkeys, I get lots of damage and field point accuracy.
    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.

    12 hr drive is the easy part of finishing a grand slam. Buying an Osceola is the tough part.

    Snuck back across the border yesterday, to finish up my Kansas season.

    Drove 2 hours to the spot, walked a half mile to the corner of a wheat field, arriving to my spot at about 6:10. Bird gobbles, we sit down, he gobbles a few more times before I finally call. At about 6:30, he came off the roost and landed behind us about 40 or 50 yards. We could hear him drumming in the timber. When I heard him start spitting, I told my buddy "He's finished." He says "Yeah, here he comes."
    He strutted his way into 10 yards, before I smacked him. Done at 6:38, Kansas season over. Drove to the local diner, had a delicious chicken fried steak for breakfast, got teased by my waitress when I couldn't finish it.. All in all, a good day.

    I just put him in the smoker, the Mrs. is excited for smoked turkey sammiches this week.

    Congrats Fink!! I had a blast up there last year. Only had one day off in the last 24 days. Haven't made one hunt yet. Planning to head up that way the first weekend in May
