  5. Super. This is definitely a win-win for Mila and your family. Wishing you many happy years together. valoroutdoors.com
  6. Very nice. Now be sure to take them in the field with you and call in a big old gobbler. It is much more rewarding when you are successful when using something you made yourself like making your own decoys or making your own arrows etc. valoroutdoors.com
  7. For the last 2 weeks I have had single mature hens come in to my fields in 2 separate locations that are 10 miles apart. Both of these hens walked in from the far end of the fields and we're clucking and cutting loudly. They would stop every so often and give out a very short low volume yelp followed immediately with clucking. We actually recorded the hens calling so that we could use the recordings for practice. There is no better calling teacher than a real hen on the move. Several years ago I heard the worst turkey calling ever from a neighbor's woods. I was convinced it was one of the neig
  8. You and only you will know when it's time. Like many others I have had to make this decision many times before. When you feel that the time has come that will be the right time and not when others tell you. May God bless Gus. valoroutdoors.com

  10. My son got a nice bird this morning. He came in and attacked our jake decoy. valoroutdoors.com
  11. I am so glad to hear he is doing good after this terrible incident. This terrible incident does illustrate a few things that we should all learn from and practice whenever we go to the Range. First never go alone. Having his dad there definitely helped save his life. Second always wear eye protection when shooting. His eye protection saved his right eye for sure. Lastly only use new commercially manufactured ammunition in your firearm. Don't gamble with old surplus ammo. valoroutdoors.com
  12. Otto I am so sad to hear of your loss. Unfortunately I share a similar story with you. When I was a young man of 16 years and in high school my dad asked me what I wanted for a birthday present. I told him I wanted a bird dog as there were plenty of pheasants here in the Finger Lakes region. My dad got me a male Brittany pup I named Rex. He was 6 weeks old. At 8 weeks he was pointing butterflies in our yard. He grew up to be a great pheasant and woodcock dog. He had an unusual ability to climb out of my chain link kennel and we had to fence over the top of the kennel to keep him in. He was a g
  13. In addition to the other good tips posted I have a couple. I like to place my decoys close to me generally 15 yards. I have bagged some nice birds doing this. If a Tom comes in to the decoys it makes for a nice easy shot. If the Tom decides to hang up 20 yards from the decoys he still is in good killing range. I primarily hunt out of a ground blind. My other tip is to use a thermacell to keep the bugs away. If you are constantly swatting flies away you will get picked off. Without fail they always seem to show up just when you have a bird coming in if you don't have a thermacell going. valoro
