Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes.  That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

Congradulationd hunt4ever, Tell us the story :chuckle:

Well, it goes like this,,, i was fighting off the heat and battling the bugs for over an hour or so calling some faint gobbles in.. so i decided to pack it in, when i stood up the tom was about 40 yds out like he was sneaking in to me.  As soon as i shot i heard two more gobblers so hopefully i can take my dad and brother back up to get them before the season closes...

i would like to say im really not happy with the number of gobblers this year,,,
