I think I have been riding the struggle bus this week! I need some help figuring out how to get John Haines display name so I can PM him to get the Hope on the way to him. Thanks for any help. I will post some more pics on my hunts with Hope later

Well I had hope for the last month and it has been fun. What a great shooting bow! I wished I could say that I had some hero pic's for you but it just didn't happen. Between a sudden house closing and a busy work life it only allowed a couple of days of hunting. Now with that said I did have some close calls with turkeys.
The first day out I sat in one of my favorite spots. I had turkeys all around me but most never came closer than 40 yards or so. The only bird that came in close enough was a big tom but the angle within the blind made it so I could not get the shot off. It was pretty fustrating to have him so close but not get the shot.

The next trip out the birds were maily hanging out in the privite ground much. This year there wasn't enough pine nuts to draw them out town where there was more feed. They just wanted to hang out in some sheep corrals most of the day.
On the second evening I had been up on a ridge glassing them feed in the corrals for a few hours then finnally they came out. They started feeding in a dike system that gave me a high percentage stalk. I sprinted down the ridge after them quick. When I got down the ridge I could see 30 to 40 turkeys feeding right behind a big bank in the dike. As I started to get into postion to shoot I notice some of the birds high tailing out of there! I didn't know how they could have seen me until I notice another hunter had tried to come up the other side of the dike! Then before I knew it I had the turkeys flying over my head and out of my life. I tried calling back the busted flock in but this late in the seaon they wanted no part of that. It was still a good day with all of that excitement.
