Gearin up for goblers
Spring turkey is on the way, soon enough it will be time for thunder chickens.
I found it a great warm up for the summer Elk hunts, An fun way to teach my son the joys of it all :D.. along with the heart breaks of wild game :cool:
This season ole tom best be careful. the boy is on his game this year..:D
2nd pic is his 1st kill.last season..now he thinks hes an ole pro..lol go get um boy :D
My Boy was hot, tired an ready for lunch at the end of a long season (that he sat in pouring rain more then once with out a complant..) He had just come off a stalk on a bird that could have just as easy been that one pictured.. but you know how them ole toms are, put the slip on rhino via a hole under the fence. bird in pic sounded off on the Grassy knoll.. I said well there you go, "go get him"
An that boy of mine said no :o "Dad you take him"... if not for the excitment of the hunt I believe I could have cryied ... A very proud moment I will never forget :cool:
This year I will be using my bow, Im sure he will want his 20ga but if he keeps shooting his bow like he was today.. He may want to give it a try
He keeps shooting like that and he'll have no problem taking a tom with his Sidekick :D
He was a bit unhappy with the rain yesterday realy wanted to get some marks on the new HHA
I just down loaded some big game, turkey pic's to show him shot placements.. very cool cut away pictures

doing some shooting not too bad for instinctive :cool:
I did put some in the diamond. and then got cocky :rolleyes: befor the rain sent me back inside :cool: come on springtime
:D Just got a e amil from the land owner, From the private property we hunted last season.. looks as thou its a green light for us again..
Sent the dates of opening seasons as requested & Rhino will be able to start the weakend befor I... so maybe we wont get that chance to dubble down :D Oh darn ;) :D Should be a great spring hunt with all we learned last year
Throw that corn out there, or better trickle a gathering trail of corn to a better ambush, can you hunt the pasture, below the tree stand, might be able to use the recurve from there. That barn be good for the double, put Rhino in tree week before.
Well last season is was marked as closed....but was givin the Ole go ahead form Owner.. @ seasons end she was boarding a horse in it.. actuly went in the evening I shot that tom.. so not sure yet if it will be open to us.. remember i made Huge brownnie points last year with her when we helped her out with the lost dog situation...:( poor ole dog :confused: still was i knew Who done it... She was very nice and should point us into the right area if the field is still in use...I also beleave i found the road that will take us into the large vally just up the road from her place, run's behind her house...
