I drew my MI tag

Unread postby Uncle Lou » Wed Mar 03, 2010 3:32 pm

I am excited. I drew the tag I wanted.

In MI everyone that applies is guaranteed a tag, and there are many leftovers, but I put in for a tag they only issue 500 of, and I am first season.

I was on a big one a few years back, and dont even know if this bird has died of old age yet. Have never trophy hunted, or chased a certain tom or buck, but this could be the year.

If not here are a few of the average birds from this spot. My retired Neighbor Tom's 2008 bird 22.6 and 10 7/8 beard

My late Big Brothers 2006 bird 23.3 and 11 1/8 beard

Arrowbender was here in 2007 when I first encountered a monster bird in this spot. Damn thing gobbled over 100 times at us and wouldnt let me shoot him for the second outing.

In 08 I had it in front of my wife at about 85 yards and thought it was a person in my spot at first sight, then when Tom killed his bird, a large bird came in to flog his almost 23 pounder. When he brought it home he said Lou it had to be a 30 pound bird (this was the only day I didnt go out with Tom. I dont sound obsessed or anything do I? I just like to fill tags and shoot whatever.

Great job on the draw, Lou. I hope that big boss or his relative is still around for you. I bought the up front tag for everywhere in Michigan except Southern Mi. public land. May 3-31. If you end up with some extra toms, let me know!

Bridge,

I want you to consider the NE lower where I got my bird last year, or the UP up at my place on The Garden Peninsula. We can discuss further at the Unleash the Beast Pig Squeel.

Sounds great, Lou (for others, see how you go about getting a camera man and top gun turkey caller in one fell swoop? :mrgreen: )
