Just got this guy yesterday with a great friend.  A great and fast morning hunt that will be remembered for a life time.

Excellent! Have my first and likely only one on the wall. Definitely one of the coolest looking birds around.

Certainly a beautiful bird and one I'd love to get someday, but I've never seen one over here on the dry-side.
If you've ever had a wild game roast in your airport carry-on, you might be a redneck.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield
