Turkeys 1, Hunters 0 (Wood Ticks 100)

I spent the weekend with my buddy Dave (he's the one at the base of the tree, trying to look like a bush) trying to fill his turkey permit, so we headed up to Glenwood and took our chances on landing a big bird. While we heard birds on the property on Saturday, we failed to bring them close and never even got a look at one.

Sunday had out hopes high, as we worked out a plan to get closer to the birds. Unfortunately, it appears that the turkeys moved off the property completely during the previous day.

While our bird hunting was unsuccessful, we were quite adapt at picking up wood ticks. Dave set the Saturday record at about 15, whereas I was strong on Sunday. Even the yellow dog got into the act, despite her use of tick medication.

Here's a photo of just one of Minnesota's finest...
