    Not in the mood for a debate, but "society" is allowing this cycle to perpetuate over & over again, the addicts & doctors are just pawns in this big chess game. We have allowed big business and pharmaceutical companies to get their tentacles into the process of politics & government. We make a show of guarding the border, but stil the demand is there and we continue to let the supply arrive. Society seems to be turning a blind eye to the problem.....

    Getting A Little Closer To My Lifetime Goal.

    There's a lot of spring jakes & fall hens & poults involved Bill...lots of guys won't shoot them, but I'm not all that fussy after I'm up early and walked a couple miles....

    Getting A Little Closer To My Lifetime Goal.

    Just a personal choice, but I never counted. Been going at it hard since around 2000, was just casual before then. All together, probably around 150-175, if you average 8 or 9 a year a year since I got serious & a handful before that. I haven't gotten bored with chasing these silly creatures yet.

    I don't have time or patience for active addicts, I don't want them around me, they can't be trusted. . But I have seen many pull themselves from the depths of heroin (and alcohol) addiction and go on to lead productive lives (and also seen many who died first). If Narcan is cheap and available, I don't see what the big deal is. It's an EMT or cop or doctor's job to save lives, no matter what the circumstances, not play God because they don't agree with someone's bad decisions. I like what Belo said, would anyone have the balls to say what they are saying here to someone whose daughter/son/brother/sister died from an overdose to their face? I doubt most would.

    What's for dinner tonight?

    Deer loin steaks cooked on the grill with mushroom gravy. Corn and garden salad, to keep an old guy regular.

    One Opening Cape Cod 6/15

    Last bump. Still 1 spot available.
  7. Longest about 400 yards on an antelope. Closest- my memory is not that good. Lots of small game at a few yards, some deer in archery couldn't have been more than 5 yards, numerous hogs with a handgun or slug gun from a few paces that had been mixing it up with dogs.

    How many days did you hunt....

    13 or 14 total, that is a slow spring for me.

    Gun Raffle has me PISSED

    Just the fact that they are getting bad press here is a good start. I don't know anything about the Randolph Rod & Gun Club, but certainly wouldn't want anything to do with them after this. If I was 100% sure that I was never going to get the gun, I 'd seriously consider a letter to the local newspaper or a Facebook smear, if nothing else to get the word about the bogus raffle so that others don't get burned.

    Little response to hot calling this spring

    Bill, I really think there IS something to what you are saying here. I didn't get out nearly as much this spring as I have in past years due to family obligations, but as usual, there wasn't the amount of gobbling I heard even 10 years ago in the morning. I got a couple to gobble late afternoon, but that was mostly shock responses. I do a lot of turkey hunting in southern Georgia, birds just DON'T gobble much there, that's just how it is; I feel blessed to know that it IS possible to kill birds that are tight-lipped (but definitely not as fun as playing with a screaming tom).

    How old were you when you learned to shoot?

    I was around 8 or 9, about the same age as when I taught my kids. But everyone is different.

    How high is too high?

    That is because they (turkeys) really are not predictable. My experience is that they will travel through just about any type of cover or terrain. I can't picture them fanning & strutting in a high field for obvious reasons, but they'll certainly travel through high grass or brush to get to food, mate, or get to their roost spot.
