  1. I would not wake up at 4am and walk into the woods in camo and a turkey vest without a shotgun (although I have a funny story about that which I'll share if we ever grab a beer). There are so many aspects that I enjoy about it, but yes, the meal at the end is what brings it all together to make it hunting.
  2. Not a deflection. A minor disagreement. I will post what I want and Bill will post what he wants. We can get into the nitty gritty of the identity politics (or conspiracy theories) once we're out of tags to fill or on June 1, whichever comes first.
  3. I disagree. A mug as handsome as yours would take way from the glory of the animal. What's most important is to show what you'll do with the harvest. A picture of the field dressed animal or of the meal you're making is what matters most as it demonstrates the ultimate goal of the hunt.
  4. Take a couple of walks. Hearing a gobble here and there will keep you in the game. Nothing wrong with napping. No snoring though!
  5. I bagged my public land turkey last weekend. We will get multiple meals out of this big Tom.
  6. Man, what a great read! Thanks for sharing
  7. Fun opener. 2 Jakes and a Tom flew down on me while I was still setting up. The Tom walked away but the Jakes proceeded to molest my hen decoy before getting in a massive brawl that brought them less than 5 yards from me. I thought they were going to step on me. They eventually walked away. After the show they put on I decided to spare them. Plus that big Tom was gobbling his head off over the ridge. I managed to bring him in 3 different times but he outsmarted me. I couldn’t get a shot off. He was stunning. Fired up. White head. Looked like a vampire. Day 2 was uneventful... pulled a tick off me.
  8. Based on your reply, I'm assuming that you dont buy into my conjecture then . -nah, it's bizarre and unnecessary. If you don't like the policies, expand on it. No need to couch it in conspiracy. (BTW, I'm with you on the Roe v Wade thing- I don't like that either) -Great, well, like our pal would say, "Don't boo, vote!" Also, I don't hunt Turkey; been fishing a little here and there- hbu? -Man I didn't turkey hunt until I did. Then I was all in. It's so much fun. I've been playing with my fly rod as well. Im curious about something you said: You'd expect this "nonsense" from me in March/Aoril , but not now: why's that? -The offseason brings the majority of the oddest political posts.
  9. I’m good man. Had a beautiful turkey opener. 2 Jakes and a Tom flew down on me. Tom walked away but the Jakes proceeded to molest my hen decoy before getting in a massive brawl that brought them less than 5 yards from me. They eventually walked away. After the show they put on I decided to spare them. Plus that big Tom was gobbling his head off over the ridge. I managed to bring him in 3 times. But he outsmarted me. I couldn’t get a shot off.

  10. You left out Paleo
  11. Congrats! Now go eat that bird! I made this turkey leg recipe for friends the other day. They loved it. https://fromfieldtoplate.wordpress.com/2016/05/02/wild-turkey-leg-thigh-barbacoa/
