10 1/4 beard
1" spurs
20 pounds even

After not hearing anything at first light Sunday morning, I did some walking and calling with no luck. So I went to A different area on the lease. Found A comfortable spot and did some cold calling with the box and then the slate and set them down beside me around 10:30 I was nodding off and one time when I opened my eyes I saw something red. It was his head and he was close and getting closer. I managed to get the bead on his head and shoot him at 15 yards! Looked at the phone, and it was 11:oo o'clock!
 I rather be lucky than good any day!

Thanks for the tiny pic tip Steve, worked great.
