Something other than fishing

Well, It's not fishing, but I have to admit, it's every bit as exciting as fishing...What is it you ask?  Turkey hunting, yup, I went turkey hunting and I had a blast!  It's only the second time I've ever been turkey hunting in my life. I successfully harvested a mature gobbler on the second morning of my hunt.  I'm afraid I might have found a new addiction, without a doubt it was exciting.  I'd like to say thanks to Derby City Calls out of Louisville, KY for making a great slate call that absolutely had this gobbler running to meet his new "girlfriend".  Thanks fellas!
God Bless,

Way behind...sorta embarrassed...

My apologies...I failed to realize how neglected my blog was...Oops, sorry.  I'll try to make up for it in a hurry, so here goes:
I coach the local high school bass fishing team, and have been fairly busy with that, we managed to squeeze in a couple of practice days for our sectional tournament.  We had built a fairly solid pattern and were anticipating a good finish.  However, that was not the case.  Although both of our teams that competed weighed in a limit, we both failed to connect with any good solid fish (3lbs and up), which left us mired in the middle of the pack.  We will be graduating 5 seniors this year, with only one underclassman returning, and a whole new crop of freshman and sophomores, it looks like its going to a "building" year for the PCHS Fishing Team.  But that's ok, if the new crop of anglers stay with us for their whole high school career, we'll be back in the hunt for a state title in no time. 
That's it for now, I promise I'll not neglect y'all like this again..
God Bless,
