Cstew Nice!

I went to Edmond, OK last weekend and we stayed at a friends house. He has 20-30 turkeys in his back yard every morning and evening. I was so tempted to shoot one with his bow but I decided against it.

It has more to do with the weather here than anything else... The WIND especially in spring out here can be brutal. One minute you're hunting the next you're an idiot sitting in the woods with a bow or gun. I've been chased out of the mountains more than once by snow showers and wind. You can contact DOW they will help too. I like to find units that are draw only then hunt the borders. You're welcome to head out with me too if you're interested...

Nice area...lot of birds just South of you in Springs area. Plenty of public open space with good bird populations. I won't hold the shotgun against you.

What part of CO do you live in? I'm down in Springs...lots of good areas for birds. What's your preferred weapon? I like doing the things the hard way...archery only.

Thanks for the heads up
