    <P>Maybe change to turkwatcher for a few weeks,the only thing bad about taggin out is being outa tags,JP has some unfinished buisness with a loudmouth.Same bird woke us up sat morn before opener,i kid you not,standing 20 yards in front of cabin,gobbling his head off at my fire ring.Left lots of birds to hit yet,never even screwed with 1/2 the property.hopin to video a JP hookup.Forgot to show richs bird,hard hunting on sat, he was done by 7:35.</P>

    typical Tangler tale: forgot sleeping bag at home on coldest weekend of turk season,(along with bottle of wild turkey)lost hat chasing&nbsp; to the jake after shot,comes back to the cabin soaked,but happy.Still,I give him credit,sat was not a good day to hunt em and he still filled his tag.
