    . Anybody who hasn't missed hasn't shot at very many turkeys. I have certainly missed my share in the last forty-some years...

    Yea maybe later in season I may try he's got a good head on him but don't know first thing about turkey hunting never been before...ever....I went and picked up licence decoy and more shells today so I'm ready for sunday....I know where the birds are and am going to try and slip in within a 150 or so and try and get one to fly down within range and get home early....here's hoping lol....Actually in all honestly all I want is the birds to be vocal. This will be his first true experience watching the woods wake up and turkey hunting too so just seeing that and hearing that will probably be enough to get him to want to go back out...he turns 13 sat and dad don't hunt much except deer and my boys only 5 so glad to have him want to be out there Sent from my SM-N920V using Tapatalk

    You're joking right? That "pompous arrogant elitist" has probably done more for conservation and education than you could ever dream of. The "holier than thou" attitude is backed by years of knowledge and research. You shouldn't be offended by his sounding "snobbish" as you call it, if you don't open your mind to the real life ideas and experiences he lays out there for you. It's never too late to learn, even when you think you've got it all figured out on your own. That's not arrogance, that's simply one member trying to help another see things in a different light through his own personal experiences. If that's not for you, then you may have stopped at the wrong place my friend, because there seems to be a lot of that going on around here with guys sharing what they know first hand..

    I understand Bernie voters. I understand Trump voters. I cannot understand who supports this cackling hen. It's just insane that they don't see her lies. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    My hunting buddy called tonight to ask if I'd be interested in tracking again. He has a line on a good bloodline wirehaired dachshund. Her name is Xena and she is 9 months old. Both our tracking dogs died a few years ago after long lives doing what they loved to do. So we got away from blood tracking. Not sure if we will be under the Deersearch banner this time around. But will be independent and track for local hunters. Guess I better start getting in shape.

    My first and second attempts at proper euro mounts. In the past I would simply bury the skulls in a small sand pit and dig them up in the late spring. These were simmered in water and dawn soap, power washed , sealed with a matte clear and then I put a light stain on the antlers. I learned along the way and hope to have chance to try it again next season. The 8pt was shot 11/29/15 and the 10pt 1/31/16, both were archery bucks taken in NJ.

    Agreed. I don't have the luxury of hunting or scouting everyday, pretty busy with this thing called "life". But I can call them in and knock them down with the best of them when I do get a chance to get out, don't need to thump my chest on an internet forum to prove that. Not every bird is a slam dunk shot at 20 yards, but I will agree that the further out they are or if you have to take a shot from an awkward position, the chance of missing (or peppering them) increases.

    Absolutely!!! That's the biggest thrill for me.I look at it this way.Deer hunting most of the people I know kill deer routinely and most get multiples in a season....even if its just a bow season or just a gun season.Turkey when one of my friends get one its a "holy Shyt that's awesome congrats way to go" sort of thing.Ive always said if turkeys could use their noses as well as deer I doubt 5% of the annual number would get killed.

    Fake retraction of a statement. I've said it, others have said it, this woman belongs in prison for treason, not in a position to run the USA. It's not hearsay it's facts. She's nothing more then Obama with boobs.

    Breakfast ! Smoked a pork shoulder yesterday rubbed in honey mustard and coffee rub. Then threw in crockpot overnight. Couldn't wait to try it. Some homemade slaw and Sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce.

    Well, maybe that's a stretch. But if you look close, these guys are showing those bumps on the pedicles as the new velvet antlers begin.

    I completely understand that game plan as being effective, but I'm not sure it would be something I'd try with a new hunter. It's easy to loose track of direction in the heat of the moment being a veteran on a shifty gobbler and I'd hate to see that shot opportunity present itself if a bird got between the shooter and caller without noticing it. With a newbie or youth hunter, I don't think I would go with that approach, but that's just me trying to eliminate any chance of catastrophes in advance before they become life altering reality to an up and coming hunter. JMO.

    used Browning A-5, and no need to change barrels. Same modified choke barrel taken: ducks, rabbits, pheasants, squirrels, and deer. Hoping to add turkey to the list soon. Clean it after done hunting for the year, just wipe down with a little oil after exposure to rain/snow during the season.

    She has been corrupt and dishonest since early in her law career. The fact that she has come this far without landing in jail, is amazing.

    While the article was well written and thought out, to me it seems to preach to the choir. There is the argument that a trophy deer, elk, whatever, is still eaten. Saving that smaller buck for next season is a moot point. Most anti-hunters would not consider that decision to be trophy hunting. You want to "work together" where there is "common ground". Arguing against wilderness areas - which I hunted avidly when I was able - and pushing for motorized access, undermines that desire. I can no longer hunt those big woods but I will continue to advocate for wilderness. I have personal limits but would fight the State compromising wild areas by allowing motorized access, even if it got me deeper into the woods. There are plenty of "Wild Forests". Many "Wilderness" areas are lacking in game anyway. You may not find many who agree with me on this forum but they are out there. I hunt with them. This tends to be a self selecting group. Maybe sportsmen aren't joining your organizations because there are too many differences, too many compromises. I will join the NRA when they stop lying about the impact of lead ammo on scavenging raptors. Why would trapping be banned in some municipalities? I assume this is for pet safety. I am sure I am not the only person who knows someone whose pet was caught or killed by a trap in a suburban or semi-rural area.

    One came in to my hen/jake set up. No blind, just back up under a dry space under a big hemlock, not bad at all in the woods. When the rain let up a bit, this guy gobbled a couple times and came in. Eight-inch beard, 3/4 inch spurs, 22.6 pounds. Now to go after the big old slob with the long spurs...oh, and remember. Don't grab them by the legs until they are stone dead. That's my blood, not his. Rookie mistake.
