Shot the photo in a different side of the raised garden. Bird Watcher was afraid the other spot I use might kill the grass and I tend to agree:)

It's been a good season but a bit warm to suit my taste. Never seen so many mosquitos. Yesterday no luck, so windy and heard no birds. This mornning tried another place and had three gobbling and roosting close. They flew down, gathered and came right to my call.

On another note in our five hunts I only seen four hens? Is it possable they might already be on the nest?

Feathers and fins, Thanks and I will some time take photos of the garden and post on the garden section for you. My bending over doesn't go to well. Back is shot so we garden in raised beds and tubs. In the bed you see is five types of lettuce and four rows of radishes plus one tomato. All other tomatoes are in tubs,

Congratulations Marty. I got one in the smoker today. Should be enjoying it late this afternoon.

The picture of you in the ghillie suite gives my and idea of what you looked like in the 70's with long hair and a full beard.....LOL

real nice Marty. Still loving that ghillie. I think I might look at that style when mine wears out. How does it do in the briars? Do they stick to it or slide off of it?

Everything sticks to the suit and I mean everything. We tuck then into our boots and it helps for the low lying stuff. You almost need help if you are within six feet of a multiflora rose :) Once you sit down you dissappear though. On another note we flyfished the pig farm irragation lake for a spell Saturday. About forty blue winged teal there, weekend before that close to a hundred. Some you could walk to within ten yards of before flying off. Corn there too this year. You can see where the local geese have walked out and have pulling up the baby corn. If it kkep wet that placce will be HOT this season!

P.S. We got our suits at the Army surplus in Springfield. I think they were 79 bucks for the complete suit.

Well, that answers my question I guess.:) My last one was horrible about hanging up in the brush. It was made of netting with the die cut leaves sewn on. My current one isn't too bad. It's made of a nylon or maybe polyester material and most of the stuff slides right off it. it still hangs up some, but definitely worth the trade off for concealment IMO.

I'm thinking this will be a real good season for early geese. They might have some mulitlple broods this year.
