I grew up in Maryland and I thought a 15 Sep opener was great but been in Oklahoma for while you would melt here in August. I've hunted in T-shirt in Nov some years, sometimes afraid to shoot because an extended recovery would be spoiled meat. Every biting critter would eat you alive. Still I would love hunting deer in just a month. :archer2: Alex

Alex, that's catalpa brush growing out of the trunks of about a dozen trees that the tornado laid on the ground. I cut the tops and limbs off the trunks and since some of the roots were still in the ground, decided I'd let em brush up the area north of the tank. I'll try to find a pic that shows the trees prior to them being laid over.

That was another guess for me I also notice that the tank got a little ding from the storm. Those leaves just look huge that close to the ground. How come we haven't seen any Terry bird at the water, did your flock get taken out by the tornado? :rolf: Gobble gobble Alex

Not nearly as many T Birds as there used to be. Not many trees to roost in. Time was...

Prior to the tornado, I'd have around 300 birds roosting on 33 acres. Most toms I ever saw in one bunch was 81 long beards. I counted them as they walked the fence line 30 yards east of the stand I was in. We've killed a lot of turkeys. I suppose there may be 30 or so out there right now.

It'll be a few years before your roost trees will get big enough Greyden be in jr high. At least you still got some critters to hunt. Alex
