Versatile Hunter’s 2021 hunting journal


Recommended Posts

Alabama hog hunting. I went with a couple of buds in April on a 2 night Alabama hog hunt. We shot ARs equipped with night  optics. Panning for wildlife at night from the bed of a pickup was almost as much fun as shooting pigs. The white hot detail is remarkable and of course now Pulsar optics are on my list of completely unnecessary toys I must have.

NY turkey. I found a beautiful public land spot where I bagged my first turkey last year late in the season. I hunted the same place on the opener and bagged a Tom. It was a remarkable experience.  I was unable to pull in a group of toms that were strutting a couple of hundred yards away. Eventually a very chatty hen came in to my decoy and drew all turkeys in. They displayed less than 20 yards away from me as I waited to get a clean shot at one of the mature Toms. It’s was one of those hunts where I almost wish I didn’t pull the trigger so that I could’ve kept enjoying the show.

Very good pics!

  The important part of all thêse Journals hêre is the pics become more important showing the people as time rolls on rather then the Game.

Showing that game becomes food is what matters most to me.

Hear you. Most viewers want to see the persons face. Just saying.

We went on our first fly fishing outing this weekend on the Ausable river in the Adirondacks. Stunning scenery and a blast. I got several bites, fought 2: broke one off and hook slipped on the other one. My lady landed this beautiful rainbow. Bunch of gear and beginner fly fishing questions forthcoming.

One of my fly tying instructors (runs a 4-H club) has been trying to get me to start fly fishing. I'll admit, it looks really fun and relaxing. I just wish I had time to add another hobby. Looks like you guys had a great trip. I've only ever hike around Ausable Chasm, but it's really beautiful

I too don’t know how I’m going to fit this in but I do know that I’m hooked. Sample fly fishing at your own risk…
