  1. Never in all my years been able to roost birds. Maybe it's too much hunting pressure... because every spring season at dusk I'm shocked by how many "owls" I hear. You hear them occasionally all times of the year, but the first week of turkey season it sounds like there's flocks of them.

    Making diaphragm call cheaper now...

    I learned to use them (Elk calls actually) when I was kid. Not for hunting mind you, but for making strange unidentifiable noises in class.
  3. I watched some video the other day where the guy said he preferred to hunt he end of the season in NY. It got me thinking... but then I remembered why I started hunting as early as possible, the damn flies! Having to wear a full head net full time and walking around in a black cloud of bugs is not fun. At least least early in the season the first few hours of the day are enjoyable.

    Nothing goes to waste in nature, something will benefit.

    Kayak or Canoe

    A generalization that may not be accurate. Too many variables. My kayak is probably more stable than my flatter bottomed canoe and many many many times more stable than my rounder bottomed one. lol But I'm still more likely to get wet with the kayak, and if I were going out in the COLD water, I'd take my flatter canoe (and sit low, maybe on the floor)

    Have Netflix?! Watch Our Planet!!

    As a child, through my early 20's I would watch any and all wildlife / nature shows and documentaries. Now I struggle to stay with them, getting bombarded with political agenda.
  8. I usually like to hunt alone, but spring turkey I will hunt with someone. It keeps me motivated to get up and get out. Otherwise it's just too easy for me to say "Oh F-it" and go back to sleep. I have a saying and it usually happens when I should be in the woods hunting.. "Guilty sleep is the best sleep." Taking my nephew with year, his first time hunting. It should be enjoyable, birds or no.

    Playtogs... a frightening place. lmao
  10. Well they don't have the data to prove half days either, just old theories, mostly proven wrong.
  11. I would, but nothing to do with dates, participation or even turkeys. Just the damn black flies.

    Turkey gun optics

    I pretty much had to put a dot on my single 10, it shot so high over POA. IIRC it's a cheap Simmons under that tape (lol) and I'm kind of shocked it's help up all these years.

    They are banning plastic bags now

    Knowing Suffolk they'll keep their 5 cent law on the books after the state law kicks in and it'll be 10 cents. Didn't we switch to plastic to save the trees?
