The problem with hunting turkeys this year has been too many hens in the area. This is the best excuse I have, and I am sticking with it. Sunday morning was a perfect day to sit in the woods and call turkeys. Any turkey should have been happy to come to Sunday dinner. The birds started gobbling on the roost about 5:30 a.m., well before the sun came up. They called from every direction. All I had to do was sit still in my blind, drink coffee and wait.
MONTEVIDEO -- Jon Altena threw a one-hit shutout to lead Montevideo to a 4-0 win over Benson in West Central South baseball action Friday. Originally scheduled as a doubleheader, rain forced the postponement of the second game. It was tentatively rescheduled for Thursday. Benson started the game with a single from leadoff man Preston Flolo, then Altena allowed just two more walks and struck out eight batters. Altena also paced the Thunder Hawks at the plate, going 3-for-4 with three RBI.
MINNEOTA -- Montevideo's Gretchen Allickson went 4-for-4 to drive in three runs and was a triple shy of hitting for the cycle as the Thunder Hawks beat Minneota 12-6 in a non-conference game Friday. Allickson led off the third inning with a home run that sailed over the fence in left-center field, doubled in a run in the fourth and knocked in a run in the fifth with a single. Wendy Macziewski drove in two runs with a triple in the second and had an RBI single in the third for the Thunder Hawks, who also got a two-run single in the second from Brook Moseng.
