    I posted this on the WI forum but I thought I'd throw it on here too.

    I connected on this toad at 8am this morning. I set up up about 50 yards from him and he was hammering on the tree. At fly down we had 6 hens, 3 jakes and this guy, fly down. They were all about 100 yards away and he never came within 75 of my decoys. He did his thing chasing the jakes off and breeding his ladies and then they went over the hill. We moved along the woods about 500 yards and set up where I thought they would come back to the woods. He popped over the hill with 2 hens and when one of them came over to check out the Avain x jake and hen, he got pissed. I got him at about 10 yards. 28.8lbs, 11in beard, 1 3/8in spurs. Taken in Grant county.

    Killin'dux that is a huge wild bird! Congrats. Deer Ticks have me staying out of the woods. I've had Lymes 3-4 times but these new diseases are keeping me out of the woods (until deer season. That I won't give up).
