  1. Had a very interesting morning. Snuck into woods early. Looked around and said. That doesn't look like a turkey. Yup, it's a bear. 5 seconds later this bear ran straight at me. I can't post the video but these screens shots show how close he came before I stood up and scared him away. The morning hunt went well too.

  4. Been awhile since I’ve been on. Life just got in the way. Got my 2020 gun buck back yesterday. I’m pretty stoked on how it turned out too. Thanks again Gman for allowing the opportunity at him. Trail cam pics are a nice addition having a little history with him knowing he was out there somewhere. After burning myself out during archery and seeing nothing but forks , spikes and not even a doe inside 30 yards I was getting humbled pretty quick. Opening day of gun I had a doe n 2 fawn at 90 yards or so with no shot. Left at 10:15 am. 2nd day of gun I turned off the 4 am alarm. Woke up at 7:30. Gm

  5. We had two hammering on the roost. Then they did what they always do, flew down just out of sight and strutted and gobbled until the hens joined them and off they went in silence. Setup for a couple hours and snoozed. On my way home I pulled a Hail Mary at a local spot. I came in from the East and thought I could see him on the gas line. So I crawled out to a tree and setup. Started calling and bam he appears in the field, strutting. Then a hen joined him and I thought it was game over but as he came closer, she'd stay close by eating. This went on for 30 minutes or so. He gobbled twice. He fi

  7. Really needed some woods time . Went to local spot last week to listen. One bird gobbling. Went back today and hit the owl tube at 5, 5:10 and finally he hit me at 5:20. I climbed almost into his living room. Now he’s gobbling on his own. Maybe 100 yards off. Soon a hen 30-35 yards off starts tree talk then another cutting hard. He’s double and triple gobbling. So I joined the fun and cut hard. This Tom was coming fast. I knew he’d crest a small ridge and boom there he is full display at 60. Hens still tree talking but he’s headed to the one on the ground. Me ! I did not want to get into a pi

  8. Not a big turkey hunter but when time allows I try to get out. Well this year with the opener on a Sat my young sons were pumped to go out....all week they couldn't stop talking about waking up at 4am. Well last night the youngest was sneezing and couching so that put him on the shelf but he gave his blessing for his brother and myself to give it a try. We set a blind and camera a few weeks earlier so we knew they was a chance of birds.....just didn't know if it was the day they would be nearby. Well around 5:45 my buddy who was 100 yards away started calling and boom the woods lights up with

  12. Last year I posted asking information about becoming a CO. After a few months of debating with myself I decided that I dont have that type of confrontational personality needed for it. However the one thing I have always enjoyed was helping people. Ever since I was a kid I was always willing to lend a helping hand. Late last year it kind of hit me like a brick wall what it was I wanted to do. I currently work as a machinist in a factory. It pays good most of the people I can tolerate. Its just not what I want to do. I figured at 33 I better get it figured out. I worked in t

  16. 1st time out this spring hunting, May 2nd. Called in this 2-3year old. Great hunt. He got lonely about 730. Worked him the 150 yds to a load of 5s. 21lbs plus. 9" beard. 14/16 and 15/16 spurs. Hammered at every call I made. Was enjoying every gobble but had to force myself to stop calling to much so he would stop strutting and come to me. Lol. 35 minutes from start to boom. I used a Fiddlehead pot call and he just couldn't resist. Sent from my LM-G850 using Tapatalk

  23. Finished up my 2021 season at 6:23 this morning. He roosted about 100 yds of my blind. I set up a lone hen decoy well before daylight. He had several hens and a Jake with him and he slowly strutted my way. My first triple bearded bird, 8”, 5 1/2”, and 5”. 1 1/8” Spurs and about 20#. Fun hunt!

  26. I’ve been thinking about doing this for a while, and finally sold my deck boat and found a great deal on a bass boat. I left Yesterday morning, spent the night at a friends house in Jersey and picked her up in Philly this afternoon. It’s a 2006 Stratos 18 1/2 foot with a 150 Evinrude. I bought It from its original owner, who had only put a verified 150 hours on the gas engine since new. Most of the lakes he fished were electric only. The boat is in almost new condition, and already has everything I need To get on the water. I’ll upgrade a few things over time, but she’s a great rig as is. I’ll

  27. Been a pretty sucky 2021. We lost our sweet dog Bleu this winter. Then my mom passed a month later. 2 weeks ago we picked up a new ray of sunshine around here. Her name is Jersi, as she is the color of a Jersey Cow. Her brother looked like a Holstein. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  28. Tried striper fishing for the first time tonight and thanks to[email protected] Lending me equipment i got one. Great time with the boys tonight. CrappyIce got a 7lber on the boga grip scale. Chef caught the most. Jerkman caught a few big ones and lost a real nice one. AT even caught a catfish and we had a ton of bites. Lastly, CrappyIce gave us 12-packs of Ruby Reds at the end. Beers, fish, and cigars. Tough night to top! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

  33. Got him! Sat on the edge of a field with a Jake and hen deke until about 830. Didn't see or hear squat. Decided to go for a walk. Walked along the top of the ridge along the creek while trying to get one to gobble with a few clucks here and there. Saw some movement at the bottom towards the creek. Turned out to be 2 gobblers and a hen. Hen is moving at a steady pace to my left while the toms are holding back a little and strutting. I crawl back away from the ridge out of their sight and get a head of them a few yards. I'm laying prone on the ridge and they slowly walk in to range going in and

  35. Got set up at 4:55. Made a couple soft tree yelps at 5:16, and a tom answered about 60 yrds behind me. Couple hear others gobbling below him, and some I couldn't tell where they were they were roosted because of the wind. Apparently two were roosted on the other side of the field as they came running in. They ended up behind a huge oak that was only 5 feet in front of me. They stayed behind that tree for 5 minutes gobbling, spitting and drumming only 12 yrds from me, but I couldn't see them. Finally one took a couple steps to the left. After the shot the 2nd tom pounced on him and thrashed him

  39. I am grateful that left handedness runs in my family! My cousin is giving me a great deal on his 5 year old Mathews Halon 6, all decked out with HHA single pin adjustable sight. It's set around 65 lbs right now with a 29.5" draw length. I plan to have that dialed down into the 50s somewhere. I need to get a quiver for it too. I'll start shooting this over the summer and probably use it this fall. I plan to keep my Denalin for backup. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

  44. Had a neighbor farmer that had a couple of calves go missing recently. I took one of the calf killers out the day before the regular season ended, but one got away. Another calf was found half eaten, so I went up last weekend and took out another coyote that I caught harassing the herd. The herd was to my left, just out of view. The coyote and a lone cow were having a Mexican standoff a few moments before I fired. The Impulse predator and a 70 gr NBT did the job.
