This is a good thread lol. I love guns but hunting is what got me into them and a lot of people on here don't hunt! I live in Washington state but all of my family and my residency are still in MO. I flew home and on the last day of my spring turkey hunt I had to take a jake. Thought it was a Tom. His head was red from all the gobbling he was doing. He was definitely an older jake though. Weighed in at 22 lbs.
This my 2011 rifle buck, jackson county. Opening morning, .243.
12 point w/ broken rack (could have been 13-14 pt) and missing right eye. Either had one helluva fight or glanced by a car. Took multiple angles cause he's a non-typical.
The brow tines on that buck are crazy, never seen anything like that.
