  1. how big do you think he was. I hear they are as small as cats when they come out. super find.
  2. thanks, the song could be worse; like: "rock the Casbah " now you're really screwed.
  3. I use a Bitzenburger. you can adjust right or left offset with a straight clamp or buy a helical clamp. I tried other cheaper jigs before buying the Bitz, and they were a waste of time and money.
  4. " oh Mickey you're so fine, you're so fine you blow my mind, hey Mickey " (Toni Basil) got these a little while back. I have to say, for me the hooded merganser has been the toughest duck to get a decent picture of. while I collected hundreds of wood duck and mallards pix this season the mergansers stopped by for less than a week before migrating on, and while they were here they always seem to hang back. I was glassing the drakes at sunset and then moving sets after dark wearing chest waders in an attempt to surprise one. well I did mange to get a couple of decent pix but man did I have to work for them.
  5. had a Jake and hen out. I think I will give only hen a shot; thanks
  6. you did him a favor. congrats
  7. yes, same here in Orange county. very quiet early and no gobbling except for 2 birds that came into my set late at 10:45 and 11:30. they only gobbled after I had called. no bow shot on either.
  8. got this guy on trail cam on April 21st and had a bird that looked just like him at about 30 yards yesterday. he would not commit to the jake and hen decoys and then walked away, stopped and gobbled once, and then walked away for good. no shot with the bow. this was at 10:45 am. had another long beard come in 45 minutes later and he acted similar to the first bird. this time got to 22 yards standing behind a tree. 1 step to my left and I would have had a shot op; but again did not get a bow shot at him as he walked off, strutted a little but would not come back in. not sure the decoys are helping me. so many other stories of birds coming right to them. while I was very disappointed not getting a shot off, it was still a great hunt. it's not supposed to be easy.
  9. you will never forget the 1st with a bow. congrats on a nice bird and very well done.
  10. like how you framed the owl. very nice indeed.
  11. nice camera work and stealth to get those photos
  12. better hide the sheep
