  3. At A Loss, Asking For Advice

    Replies above are spot on. Getting them to cross the road is going to be the toughest part. Put up a turkey crossing sign. Everyone knows deer only cross the road where deer xing signs are Where we hunted before birds would slowly zig zag down the big hill( like law said , they’re not big fans of going directly down hill ). Birds would slowly meandor back up to us. I can recall quite a few I killed coming up hill. Last years big un included and knew they’d work uphill and I was ready. I’ve hunted with a few guys and neither could hear each other calling. Softly and sporadically. Loud yelps are a thing of the past imo Clucks , purrs once he’s interested. Maybe some yelps to get him fired up

  7. New to fly tying

    Wish my brother had a computer or I’d have him chime in. He’s been tying flies for 60 years. Catches thousands of trout a. year. Fishes native trout streams in NY, Idaho , Montana, Wyoming from May til November. He’s one of the top fly fishermen out west and has built a reputation as such amongst the guides ( he doesn’t guide and fishes for fun ) Hebgon lake gulper on a tiny dry fly he tied It’s about learning the hatches , tying accordingly , presentation etc Nothing better than fooling ole Moe out of his hole , where many have presented flies before Yet you fooled him , release him to know you’ve caught him on your home spun fly you tied This is my only knowledge of fly fishing besides I’m terrible at it

  9. Plant?

    I hunted morels for years on same ground and never found any. Finally read they like similar ground to skunk cabbage. Last year daughter and I were approaching the noon deadline to our hunt for turkey in spring. Said let’s take a deer trail I think may hold morels near the skunk cabbage. I think I yelled bingo pretty loud as my hunch payed off They were on the edge of a spring run off of a slight hill, mucky and loaded with skunk cabbage.

  14. Beer

    Pre game before going out to dinner with my two girls. Lots of roasted coffee and chocolate. Not as bitter as imperials usually are. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Plant?

    Skunk cabbage. Turkeys will eat the seeds. My fall bird 2 years ago had its crop stuffed with them. And keep your eyes peeled in that area for morels now and soon. Perfect location around and near there. It’s how I found some last year. Gotta beat the slugs to the shrooms though. They could pop in a day so be persistent!
