  1. Finally was able to mount my moose this weekend. Did it myself right in my living room! Really happy with him. Had an amazing season. I'll put up better pics in a few weeks after he dries and I do some finish work. This trophy room is really starting to come together! Sent from my SM-J327T using Tapatalk
  2. wish I had time to do some brook trout fishing in Maine when I went up for my moose hunt. There was a father and son who were using the same outfitter as me and they came up a few days early to catch some brookies. they did really well and showed me some pictures. super jealous. couple 2 - 3 pounders and a boat load of good 12-15 inchers. all full spawning colors
  3. Adirondack brook trout trip is definitely on my bucket list too. i'll be keeping an eye on this thread
  4. can't wait to see some pics of ohio giants!!! welcome aboard!!!
  5. gives him character! looks awesome!
  6. Yea kinda Sent from my SM-J327T using Tapatalk
  7. yea those are awesome. seen some people paint the whole fan. really cool
  8. I did both of my mossbergs with the mossy oak gun skins. came out pretty good, definitely not as professional looking as hydro dipping but I like them. did them like 6 or 7 years ago and they've held up just fine. cheap too, $30 I think. pretty easy to do, just need a hair dryer or heat gun and a razor to cut excess.
  9. Hoping later this month Sent from my SM-J327T using Tapatalk
  10. First coyote I ever shot and the first lifesize animal I ever mounted. I know its far from perfect but I think it's pretty good for my first, still have a lot to learn.
  11. I've only kept 1 pike ever but I watched a few videos on the 5 filet method and it worked great and wasn't that difficult. No bones at all and the meat was better than I expected. Wouldn't hesitate to keep them now. You get 3 long strips of meat which are perfect for a fish fry on a roll and 2 smaller tail filets Sent from my SM-J327T using Tapatalk
  12. Heard 5 gobbles around 630, nothing since. Had 2 bucks come within 5 yards of me then run off snortin at me. I'll probably be surrounded by turkeys come bow season. Sent from my SM-J327T using Tapatalk
  13. I'd like to volunteer myself for Bill's turkey master class next year. I've killed a few a few birds myself (2 longbeards and 3 jakes) but I'm struggling to close the deal this year. Been hearing tons of gobbling but just can't bring them in. I'll gladly be your next protege! Sent from my SM-J327T using Tapatalk
