Struck out

Post by chatterbox » May 31st, 2015, 6:33 pm

Hey guys,

Struck out this season. I didn't get to hunt near as much as I wanted, and when I did get out, I never heard a thing.
I saw one bearded hen all season, but I will not shoot them or jakes.
Congrats to everyone who had success!

Mike

Sorry to hear that, I almost did too because of 4 misses but then connected with 5 days of season left.

I don't see it that way Chatterbox. You got a front row pew in God's church of the outdoors in one of the prettiest month's NH has to offer.

To me you are a winner for the effort you put forth in the name of our team.

My contest days are over here at GN. Too many requirements to "prove" you shot a turkey. Maybe a good requirement if cash were the prize but just for bragging rights it is not worth the effort of proof.

I'm happy I got to help our team even in default.

I'd like to thank K9Doc for all the work he put in tallying the scores.

Grumpy, four misses in a row? Next year you get one shell. Make it count! :thumbup:

I know that feeling Grumpy. I was 2 for 6 in my home state. Ugh!

We've all been there grumpy, and NO it ain't fun! The 1st miss isn't so bad but after the 5th one in a row it's almost comical! Glad you were able to shake it off.

Better luck next season chatterbox, at least you got the chance to get out, I'm sure there were a few that didn't even get that opportunity, there's always a positive in a negative!

I've had a terrible time as my eyesight got weaker with age. I switched to a NEF Pardner from my 870. The NEF has one front sight that I continually looked over as I pulled the trigger. Miss a few gobbler chip shots.

Had been watching BIL rolling birds over with his Encore. So I made the switch and put a red dot scope on it duplicating his setup. Best turkey hunting decision I have made of late.

Put the red dot just below his red head and pull the trigger. My success rate has increased dramatically.

I feel the pain!
