  1. Shot a nice 2 year old opening day and then, this passed Saturday I tagged out in Ny... Started off the morning setting up with my wife to try and get her a bird, scouted this spot and last Sunday we had 6 long beards right where we set up this past Saturday. Friday night a storm system blew in, lot's of rain, wind etc... Wasn't sure how that would effect the birds but went in as planned.. Wife's got arthritis in her knee pretty bad and it was really hurting her on the way in.. I set up the decoys, got her set up and settled long before first light.. At first light the birds gobbled on the roo

  3. Well, I just had the best Turkey hunt for some years now. I did not go out early, probably hit my spot a little after 8, but as I was walking in I heard a gobble close by. Good start. I got my 3 decoys set up and settled into my brush blind, see the pic below. I waggled my gobbler tube and used the mouth call. Got a couple of immediate responses and then nothing for a while. I called a little longer and then stopped. About 15 minutes later more gobbles and clucking heading my way. 3 Jakes came in. One was a good deal bigger than the other two. The decoys did not spook them, but also they

  4. It sounds like your in a location that hold some birds and sometimes it just takes a while to figure them out. If you hear them on the roost, then try to determine where they are going once they hit the ground. I tend to sit tight for an hour or so, because they often come in with out making a sound and once we are moving, it's so easy to bump them. But moving slowly and glassing can be productive around ag fields. Good luck and have fun.

  7. It's a lesser yellowlegs.....They winter in South America and nest in the arctic, so we only see them passing through...They often travel in flocks with greater yellowlegs...The species are very similar except the greater has a longer bill and longer legs...The lesser are about 2/3 the size of the greater. Other than that, I don't know a thing about them...<<smile>>....

  17. Just want to thank mowin again for a great hunt. I already knew I wanted to learn and developed an even greater respect for the sport and lifestyle. The endurance, persistence, patience and so much more that goes into hunting turkeys and the relationship, knowledge and skills you learn are incredible - and I certainly learned a lot from mowin about everything right up to butchering. I'm excited to get out there and use my other tag before the season ends and can't wait for the other animal seasons and a chance to learn the skills and knowledge to hunt them as well!

  18. Missing ain't that bad during turkey season. You get all the fun of the hunt a sore shoulder from the shotgun and you don't have to tote a heavy, awkward bird out of the woods and suffer through some "edible" meat. It's really best case scenario. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  19. Jeff, congratulations on your first turkey! Great bird and nice job! Mowin, huge props to you! Taking out a new hunter, calling and everything you did was absolutely awesome! Great job! I've said it before, I'll say it again. There are some outstanding people on here!

  20. So went out with mowin again today. Was still very quiet. Right around 8 we finally came across a tom. Got down and sat right along the natural fence between two fields. We kept calling and he kept gobbling. Took his sweet time getting to us, was a group of them so he already had some hens. Finally around 850 he came close enough to take. Happy to say I was able to finally nail my first bird and I am hooked. All the patience and waiting, wind, rain and cold were worth it. And he helped me butcher it afterwards. 9.5" beard and 1" spurs! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  23. If by some miracle I find a turkey stupid enough to believe I'm a hen and gets close enough that I shoot it, I will definitely save the wings for you.

  34. Jeff and I had to work for this guy. Not a single gobble until about 7:45. The sun came out, and the adjacent hillsides cam alive with gobbling. Happen to stumble upon this guy. Walked within 80 yrds of him. Took about an HR to get him in range. I was so nervous for Jeff. I was shaking like a leaf in a wind storm.. lol. I get more nervous when I'm calling for someone, then when I'm alone.

  35. Shot half the beard off unfortunately, but it's the best turkey I ever got. He came in running after a hen that walked by maybe 30 seconds. He strutted once he stopped and once he got out of strut it was a perfect shot. No more than a 20 yard shot. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  38. I went to the Henrietta store Saturday. There were a few good deals here and there, but nothing spectacular yet. I picked up the bug suit I need for my bear trip next spring for $31, which wasnt bad. Grabbed a few fishing lures and a pair of bow hunting gloves. The guns are 10% off right now, Im hoping they go to 20% or more off, then Ill go pick something up. As far as them "marking up prices and then taking the percentage back off", I dont buy that at all. They would have had to go in and basically repackage all of their items, as the retail price is printed right on the packaging mater

  43. Black Friday is for deer hunting or if the tags are filled drinking and taking the rest of the meat off the turkey and disposing of the carcass.

  44. Good heavens, do we need hazmats to hunt now and then scorch the carcass with a flame thrower for a few min before going near it? If anything I think this thread has been helpful and pushes me off the fence on a carrying decision. Last year I had a deer in my minivan on a blanket, but considering family gets in there I think I will get one of those hitch carriers and throw it on there so that it's never inside. If nothing else that will keep tickets out of the van.

  48. Did the neighbors little twerp kid pop a gobbler you were watching or something? You just took the whole point that I was making about the selfishness of some senior hunters and made it all about what YOU want. I have no idea what your intentions are by taking a good thing and turning it ugly, but it's sounding a little bit like a cover up. Let me go get your "Dad of The Year" award.................

  49. It doesn't bother me that the kids get a couple days before us to kill a bird. It gives them a better chance than the rest of us to kill one since birds haven't been pressured yet and are usually gobbling pretty hard. It may make the difference between growing a potential hunter and having a kid give up in desperation because they are bored or it's too challenging.
