Every other year, I'm the Man!

You see this picture?  This picture was taken after I killed my third gobbler of 2010.  2010 was a great year for me as a Turkey hunter!

This is another fine picture of a great Hunting experience that took place in 2008!

This 21 lb beauty fell to my calling charms in the Spring of 2006!

Do you see a pattern here?  I can keep going if I need to.  If things do not pick up here in 2011 very quickly, then I believe I am cursed with the "every other" or "even years only" curse.  It has been that way for me with very few exceptions since 1998. 

It's hard to figure.  Our place has plenty of birds.  They just do not seem to like me in years that end in an odd number.  This year is not looking very good for me either and my hunting chances are getting fewer and fewer.  I was out of town this past weekend golfing. This weekend I will be camping with my son and his RA group.  Next weekend is Easter weekend and I have to attend an egg hunt with my wife and kids in the early morning.  The following weekend I am scheduled to play in another golf tournament.  I'm just about out of weekends!!  I can only hope to get in a few "mid week" hunts between now and the end of the season.  The problem with that game plan is that the birds are not talking very much right now and I do not want to use all my brownie points from work to go sit in silent woods!

This turkey hunting thing can drive you crazy but I guess I will just have to live with the fact that every other year...

 I'm the man!

I'll see you next April if this logic holds true, however I'm the man all the time... that's how I roll...

Sounds like the olive harvest around here. Heavy year, then light year. I now appreciate my olives more. I picked in a light year and with olives you pick each berry.

Have you tried all you baseball tricks? Rally hat? Not washing or changing your socks? Just some thoughts.

DEDH- send some of your MOJO this way!

Steve- I did change to my lucky hat the last time out. No such luck!!

I bet if they had a turkey give away on-line, you'd get one ;)
