I won?
I didn't expect that at all.
I thought for sure the turkeys would be taken home on a silver platter being thanksgiving and all.
A Tineckbone original coming my way... I'm all smiles.

The Ruffed Grouse was very focused on foraging. I just happened to luck out by having the camera already on and in my in hands so there weren't any movements he could detect.

Thank you, thank you, everyone for the wonderful congrats...And to judge Dave himself!
