Osa Johnson’s “I Married Adventure”.....forum member Dinsdale  gave me the book and I’m slowly getting through it.  It is a very old original that I have to be careful of.  January of 1940 edition.

Most of the Traditional Turkey Hunting in the Roughly 13 States that had a Turkey Population was held in Fall + Winter.

    Spring Turkey Hunting came about after the massive Restoration of Turkey Populations to include 49 States using Cannon Nets to Trap+ Transfer Pure Wild Turkeys in State + State to State.

     US POPULATION of Wild Turkeys reached a all time Low of approximately 33 Thousand Turkeys Nationwide around the year 1933.

   Again-- Spring Turkey Hunting  was added on after the Traditional Fall + Winter Turkey Season.

There are some turkey hunters that will not hunt in the Spring, they say it is to easy and no challenge to get a turkey in the Spring. I disagree.

On a side note I picked this up on ebay the other day, supposed to be in Tuesday. The Wild Turkey Biology & Management by James G Dickson.

 

This will be my next purchase I think.

Wild Turkey Harvest Management : Biology, Strategies, and Techniques, Paperback by . Fish and Wildlife Service (COR); Healy, William M.; Powell, Shawn M., ISBN 1484970233, ISBN-13 9781484970232, Like New Used, Free shipping

The book’s objective was to synthesize what is known about the effects of hunting on wild turkey populations, and provide models for regulating harvest that provide ample hunting opportunity with minimal risk of overharvest. The book also reviews the biology of the species and the 3 basic strategies for harvesting wild turkeys.

  Sor-diealot- that is a good Book indeed!

   I bought mine around 1994 for, I believe 69 Dollars.  Although it is dry Reading, I have come back to this book many times over the Decades .

House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski. Outside of “The Wake” (written in Shadow Tongue) which I highly recommend for historical fiction fans, this is my first truly experimental novel.  I’m about 50 pages in, and it’s strange. Looking forward in the book, it will get a whole lot more strange. I always wondered why I couldn’t get this book on my ereader, but now I realize that it probably couldn’t deal with the strange format.

Channeling your inner Maureen Corrigan, I see. Keep at it, perseverance is key. 

A Promised Land arrived today.  If it’s anything like his previous books, I’m in for a treat!

Dark Passage by Richard S Wheeler. It is a book in the Barnaby Skye series set in the days of the beaver trapping times in the beginning of the settling of this country

It's not bad and I will probably read a couple more.

Recently finished reading Horace Kephart's Camping and Woodcraft, and I'm just about 1/4 of the way into Mors Kohcanski's Bushcraft:Outdoors Skills and Wilderness Survival.

 

I was very surprised that the Kephart book revolved around hunting a lot. Tracking, skinning, processing, and even cooking wild game. I'll be buying the second volume soon.

 

I also want to pick up a couple books by Nessmuk. His canoeing the Adirondacks book and his camping and woodcraft book.

Back cover of September Evening. Voss on the Left + Manfred Von Richthofen on the right.

  Voss shot down 48 planes before being killed in this Dogfight. And Richthofen was the Aces of Aces on both sides with 80 Victories before being shot down from the Ground by Australian Machine gunners.
