Thanks boy's!........Glenn (whatever a smurf is).......

Muffin head...when you have shot as many turkey's as I have...it's just like deer hunting, you can't eat the horns....turkey's are the same, you can't eat the tails or beards...When I make a turkey samich, nobody gonna know the difference....  :rotflmao:

Now the boy has to fill his tag at home.....

Its over for me.  I hunted season C down in Houston County and came up empty.  Many (or most?) of the hens were still actively breeding.  Toms would gobble to yelps and cuts, but they weren't moving in.  I was working one tom (actually he was working me) when I found myself between him and a flock of yelping hens.  I thought I finally had him until the hens worked their way around me and over to the tom.  He gobbled for 4 hours straight until the hens finally joined him at 9:45 and then he shut up.

Steve-O, I believe you can still hunt the last 2 seasons with your tag if ya didn't fill.

You are right.  Us tag soup guys can hunt the two week season F, 05/17 - 05/31, in the zone we were drawn.  So I guess it isn't officially over yet.  And that last weekend of season F is Memorial Day weekend.

That might not be a bad option given that I believe the breeding season got a late start.  Maybe some of the toms will have some energy left.
