  Just got back from my first Merrians hunt in North West Nebraska. The Pine Ridge area
Is really a special place, beautiful country, good people and a few birds.
  Most of the grown birds were hened up all day, plenty of willing jakes. Hens finally left a couple gobblers early evening and I was able to bring them in. I was Bowhunting out of a blind
Using decoys, they just attacked the Jake, made a good shot on one, he didn't go anywhere.
  Couple of pics.

  Chris, thanks for the nice comments. The bow is one of my old Bob Morrison Recurves. It's
Short so I use it when hunting out of a blind.

  Turkeyman, your right. VPA 250 gr., serious medicine. The country is really different than anywhere I have ever hunted, it has a rugged beauty all its own. I'm hoping to get to go back this year, I found a real honey hole on the last morning, lots of birds talking in this secluded canyon.
  Must have been a great hatch last year, I have never seen so many Jakes. Gonna be a bunch of two year olds next year.
