    Late Season Field Hunt for Geese

    Al we didn't see any snows at all this morning but I did see a few flocks fly over earlier this week. valoroutdoors.com
  2. Went out with my son this morning for a late season goose field hunt. It was very cold with temperature of 12 degrees and wind chill of 0 degrees. Not much was flying but we had a pair come in perfectly to our decoys. I bagged the lead honker and my son bagged the follower. Picture is my son with the 2 birds. We had an enjoyable morning. valoroutdoors.com

    Skunked for ducks

    My son and I were invited by a friend for a Cayuga Lake duck hunt Saturday morning. My son had never been duck hunting before nor ever shot a duck even though we have hunted fields for geese many times. We decided to let the rookie get the shots and he nailed 2 goldeneye drakes and 1 goldeneye hen. They were the only birds that came in so he was 3 for 3. We hunted from my friend's boat and had a great time. I hope the New Year brings good luck to everyone and especially to Paula on her first time out. valoroutdoors.com

    What did you get for Christmas?

    I got some nice gifts for Christmas. They are not that important. The best gift I got was the thrill my son got when I gave him his new Benelli Super Black Eagle II shotgun. There is no better gift than the gift of giving! I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas. valoroutdoors.com

    Merry Christmas!

    On behalf of my son and I.
  6. O.k. turkeyfeathers great job and congratulations. Now be sure to clean that 20 ga. for your daughter and replace the slug you shot so that she can go out and do a repeat. Wouldn't that make for a terrific season for the both of you! valoroutdoors.com
  7. Ah yes Moho I forgot about Bluto's line in the movie. LOL. valoroutdoors.com
  8. Hey Moho you are right that it isn't over until we decide it is but to be accurate it was the Japanese and not the Germans who bombed Pearl Harbor. Good luck to all. valoroutdoors.com
  9. Hey turkeyfeathers my son and I also skipped this morning but I think you mean Black Friday morning and not Good Friday morning! I hope this humors your daughter and that she scores this afternoon. Lol. Am heading out with my son now also. valoroutdoors.com
  10. Same here. Son and I going into ground blind with Mr Heater to stay warm. Good luck to all and Happy Thanksgiving. valoroutdoors.com
  11. Classic coyote damage to your buck unfortunately. They always start at the back end. We have had it happen to us. If we can't find a deer and find it the next day we have the same thing happen. Damn coyotes! valoroutdoors.com
  12. Thank you for your reply but I am not interested in an electric atv. I just want a bike to get me to and from my stands. If I need my atv I just go and get it if I need it. valoroutdoors.com
  13. Old age is having a negative effect on me. I am considering an electric hunting bike which will be used strictly for getting me to and from my stands and for checking my trail cams. I already have an atv for hauling out deer and for working my land but want something quiet and lightweight for transportation. If anyone has one or has any experience with one I would appreciate your recommendations. I live in the Finger Lakes region and there are some hills that I would need to get up. I want a high quality bike that will suit my needs and get me and my gear in and out with no problems. valoroutdoors.com

    Crossbow

    It's a myth that you can shoot farther with a crossbow. Compounds and crossbows have the same effective killing range. For decocking all you need is a special decocking bolt that you shoot into the ground. It only goes in a few inches and is easily pulled out. The big advantage with a crossbow is the lack of movement you make before shooting compared to having to draw a regular bow. valoroutdoors.com

    Crossbow help.... sighting

    I also use Slick Trick 125 gr. for my crossbow. I have my crossbow dialed in and they are extremely accurate but they do not shoot to the same point of impact as field points. I just use some of the broadheads for practice and you don't have to practice very much with a crossbow. The first thing you need to check is the manufacturer's recommended total weight for your bolt including bolt and nock and broadhead. If you are not within the recommended range you will never get consistent accuracy. I hope this helps you out. valoroutdoors.com
