Steve Lawson Scratch Box (with thanks to George Lozzi of Midwest Turkey Call Supply)

 Many thanks to George Lozzi of Midwest Turkey Call Supply for this nice surprise and letter in the mail today. It's a Steve Lawson scratch box and some thoughtful comments from GL.

Team effort, of course, with good folks like Brian Lovett among others who first say yes to such magazine article queries, and publications such as Turkey & Turkey Hunting that published my most recent feature on scratch boxes.

Writing/editing all day, 'cept when my old setter boy Radar and I took a break to watch the Maine snow melt in the March sun. Leaves stuck on his left ear are from fooling around with Luna, our setter girl (she's nearby, too wired to relax). Life's good.
