Sharing some success pics with my AAA buddies

Thread starter #1
Im out in Wisconsin now but wanted to share the pics of two gobblers that I was fortunate enough to take.
My buddy and I arrived Tuesday night and each had two tags.
Late Tuesday morning I had a very nice gobbler come in and I was fortunate enough to kill him with my .410 and 13/16oz of Tungsten #9.5 shot.
He was the heaviest bird that I have killed at 22.5lbs.
Beard was 10.25"
Spurs 1-1/6" and 1"

The second morning happened quickly. I had at least 3 mature gobblers sounding off along with multiple Jakes.
This guy came in at 5:55am.
I used my 20ga on him.
1-7/16oz of T9
A shade over 21lbs
Beard 10-3/16" Super thick
Each spur was 1-3/16"

The deer hunting there is fantastic. I am invited to hunt it in November but it has been just too busy for me to do it.
My buddies kill tremendously nice buck each year.

I am jealous.
Don't get me wrong...I am enthralled with my bit of acreage and doublewide (I still call it my cabin in the woods)...here in Georgia.

But...cold water lakes...icy streams...(and I have heard the spring walleye run in Wisconsin is phenomenal)...are just not how it is near Savannah. Those look like magnificent birds and I am pretty convinced they didn't get that big being stupid.
Must have some calling skills in addition to shooting skills.

I have no doubt your property is a true parcel of heaven.

We frequent a restaurant along Lake Onalaska/Mississippi River called the Red Pine. They are known for their Walleye meals and sandwiches.
One trip I would love to take the time to fish for some Walleye.

I've heard that a novice on the right bird will humble a veteran on the wrong bird every time, but I have been fortunate enough to be able to do well the last dozen years or so. I think with age comes patience and that no doubt helps tremendously.

Here is a shot from the cabin that overlooks the town, beyond the town is the Mississippi River, and the ridge beyond that is Minnesota.
If I forgot my gun and shells I could be very happy just sitting on that porch.

I didn’t realize you were in PA. What part? I have a good friend just south of Erie that keeps inviting me up there.
