OPENING MORNING GOBBLER!
(A bigger smile would have been nice, but it was killing me to kneel. :( )

I haven't even put a tape to the beard or spurs yet, so don't ask.
Couldn't even find the fish scale, so don't go there either.

He looked to be about a 2 year old...
Probably 3/4 to 7/8 inch spurs and about a seven inch beard.

Came in late. Gobbling all around, but he played "hard to get" clear until 11:10 am!
Finally couldn't take the silence any longer I guess 'cause he ended up coming in on a string when he did come.

Umm... Took him with the shotgun this year. Wasn't sure I'd be able to draw the bow.

It's great to have this done now. I go in for surgery on the 6th and may be laid up for a while. :)

Yahoo for Jeremiah, you still got it. You gotta love that comforting feeling of success.
