  1. This is the annual den that's less than 50 yards from our bedroom window. Kits emerged last Thursday night/Friday morning. Most years Momma relocates them after they are mobile enough. Last year her litter hung around til August which was a pain. We have a little dog, an outdoor cat, and a chicken coop 75 yards from the den site. One night in August, there was a commotion and when I flipped on the lights four of them had our cat surrounded. I'll give them a week or so to relocate before I urge them along. For my urging, I drop a towel soaked with ammonia near one of the den entrances, and

  2. I could not recommend it more to anybody else in ENY if @Buckmaster7600 decides to do this again. Dude really, really knows his stuff and not only helped me a great deal, but taught us how to teach ourselves. Thanks again!

  6. Got to shoot it over the weekend. What a rip I had. I wouldn’t even hesitate to shoot a turkey with ether barrel at 30yrds. It was very consistent. The load was 80gr. FF black powder with 11/2oz of nickel plated #5’s. I was also shooting a basketball with #71/2’s just for fun and fun it was. Cylinder bore Modified bore Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  7. Gobble was fairly close.. probably 300 yards at the most. Gobbled probably 30 times. I'm only 5 miles from the farm I hunt, and its overrun with birds. But rarely or never see or here a gobble at the house. Lots of birds around from July to November, but rarely see or hear a spring gobble.

  8. Bears were sought after for many uses historically. If you were eating meat at a table it was likely bear and they rendered down bear fat to use as oil to burn in lamps, a protectant for leather and metal, etc.

  11. Agreed, I even start by closer 10 yrds or less to get that tight hole. Put the red dot on top and then you can adjust in another couple of shots out to 40 or 50 yrds

  12. I agree on using the light loads...Also, don't try to shoot over 20 or 25 yards at first...It is much easier to determine center of pattern with a small pattern at close range...Get it dead on at close range with the light loads and then confirm with a couple of your hunting loads at longer range to make any final adjustments, if necessary...

  13. That's a video of 4 years worth of Trump flubs. Biden has only been in office 2.5 months and could triple that amount of flubs right now, and he reads from a teleprompter. Biden hasn't got the ability to accomplish 1% of what Trump did for freedom and liberty in America. In fact, he's doing all he can to eliminate much of it every day he breaths our air. How anyone can still support Democrats after watching the last four years of insane leftist lunacy and now Biden as President? One really has to be completely delusional to do it IMHO.

  14. I have read articles about Turkey hunting with a rifle, it is done mostly in western states where open country and longer range seems to play a big factor. The 22 Hornet with FMJ bullets was a big favorite and effective with those hunters. The other 22 cal varmint rounds loaded to the same ballistics as the Hornet were also used with minimal meat damage. If rifles were legal to use here and I hunted habitat like open farmland where Turkeys could be called into fields for clear shots I would have no problem using a rifle. In the woods where there is a lot of cover to get into the way of a

  16. Out on a scouting/listening mission this morning and I haven’t heard this much gobbling in 20 years. There’s gobbling and n 360 degrees from close to as far as I can hear. Let’s hope they stay this vocal until youth season! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  19. I used my bow more then my shotgun a few years ago for Spring turkey. I had one of the best days out I've had in a long time. I called a nice tom in, he hung up about 10 yards out of what I felt my effective range with the bow was. Even typing this my heart is thumping from memory. It felt so much more exciting to be at full draw waiting on that bird to just take a few more steps towards me. He finally strolled off and I let the bow down. It felt like hours passed but was only a few minutes. The toughest part was trying to deal with motion. Once getting eyes on the bird setting the call down a

  25. Actually, a turkey's head and neck move a lot and very unpredictably. But the base of the neck, where it meets the shoulders moves very little when the head and neck move. That base of the neck spine shot isn't hard to do with a rifle as it is a target about the size of a baseball, which isn't hard to hit at 100 yards. If a turkey is standing still looking at you from a distance, which they often do, that lower neck shot would be easier to do with a rifle than a close range tight choke pattern shot at the birds head with a shotgun, especially if the bird is alert and moving.

  26. Holy crap, that's awesome. I don’t care if I ever shoot another tom. I get more excitement from the youth or first timers than me shooting another turkey. Unless its with a BP. Looking forward to experiencing your traditional hunt through this thread. Good luck, im rooting for you.

  33. So, we have a bit of a rainfest going on this AM. What are some things we can do given the rain? We’re midtown and have to be at the Natural History Museum at 3. we had planned the boat ride this am but no go on that. We had an excellent meal at Quality Meats. The corn creme brûlée was out of this world. Let alone the steaks. Some girl from Belarus was our waitress and she was awesome.

  34. A hillbilly went hunting one day in West Virginia and bagged three ducks. He put them in the bed of his pickup truck and was about to drive home where he was confronted by an ornery game warden who didn’t like hillbillies.The game warden ordered to the hillbilly to show his hunting license, and the hillbilly pulled out a valid West Virginia hunting license. The game warden looked at the license, then reached over and picked up one of the ducks, sniffed its butt, and said, “This duck ain’t from West Virginia . This is a Kentucky duck. You got a Kentuckey huntin’ license, boy?” The hillbilly rea
