    Beekeeper,

    Sorry to hear about the bad season. Our weather has been so wet the farmers can't work the fields. Haven't seen any corn or beans planted yet. It is supposed to rain again later today and tomorrow.
    Billy called a little while ago to brag, haha. I had a hand in creating this monster. We was duck hunting buddies in the 90's and one day I said you should go turkey hunting with me. Well on day one he killed 2 jakes with one shot 15 minutes after we left the truck. The next year he wanted to teach me how to hunt turkey. He still has and uses only 1 call a lynch grand champion box. Billy is rapidly catching up with me. He took a 23 lb gobbler with 1 3/8 inch spurs this morning in Iowa. That makes 5 longbeards this year. Two in Iowa, 2 in MO and 1 in KS and he has 2 more weeks to hunt that last bird in Kansas.

    Happy,

    We can fix that if you want to give it a try. Wouldn't be a problem to fix you up with a place to hunt. My guiding comes free of charge. Heck I've been trying to lure Beekeeper out here to teach me how to really serenade the birds with a call. My screeching only works every now and then. WOW must have been nice to meet ol' Ben Rogers lee and Neil Cost Something told me this guy really knew his stuff. If you need me I'll be under the porch practi-err training yeah that's it training with my box calls.

      Forgot to mention I stopped shooting jakes and hens a few years ago. Let 2 gobblers and 7 jakes walk away before shooting Obama.

            Del,

            I'd love to go just tell me when and where.

            Sorry for the tardy response. I had to chair an annual meeting yesterday, so didn't check my computer until this morning
