Re: Geeze

In Canada It's illegal to shoot an intruder in your home that is a threat to your family. They suggest we call 911 and hope the intruder waits for the cops before he starts killing the occupants. Gotta love liberalism!!!! :( I feel for you guys. That's sad. I would be moving south into the heart an...

Re: How many chances?

Shoot bro, that's nothing! I blew 7 or 8 chances this season. Was using shotgun, but it didnt make any difference. Had a boss at about 8yd. He needed 2 steps but decided otherwise. Had them at 57yds 3 times, 50yds once. Got out of setup twice and had them looking at me. Finally decided to shoot a ja...

Re: Mrs Hatchet's first kill

Awesome! Congrats to the young lady. Hard to imagine in these crappy times, something good could come out of it. But, a lot of family time has for many of us.

Re: I got turkey hunting eyes

Same story here. I work 2nd shift, and normally go to bed around 2am. So getting up at 4:30 has been killing me. I have finally burned out, emptyhanded so far. The IN season closes on Mothers Day, so I only got a couple hunts left.

Re: Day 2 crossbow Turkey

Nice bird, way to go! Indiana turkeys have been giving me the middle toe so far! I cant do anything right this year. Busted or blown the chance 5 or 6 times now. Sad.

Re: Wingbone call

I have made several as well. Used last year for first time, and it was a success! Easy, fun, effective, and a great conversation piece!

Re: Another ammo crisis

I got caught with needing supplies last time around this crap happened. Vowed it would never happen again. Now sitting pretty. Very pretty. Lol.

Enjoy that 22 and airgun! Plenty good enough to scratch that itch.

Re: O/T Shotgun Turkey Hunters

Easiest call is probably a push type box call. It's basically a push in knob or plunger that makes a Yelp. You can almost start a riot talking about what call type is best or when to make what sound. Lol. As for a decoy, we use a styrofoam ball with tail feathers stuck in. Mount it to a rod and push...

Re: O/T Shotgun Turkey Hunters

Plain Jane Remington Nitro #5 turkey loads have shot the most consistent out of several guns for us 12 & 20ga. It is one of the few that's buffered, so has the best chance of consistent launch. Price and availability cant be beat either. I pick them up at year end clearance deals. I am already set f...

Re: Trying something new this spring

Reading a lot of guys using .410 with the TSS successfully. Still not legal in Indiana yet though. I am a late start in life turkey hunter, but 30+ yr deer hunter. Only started 8 yrs ago, due to my buddy hounding on me to try it. He learned from a friend and his dad who are from TN. He is highly suc...

Re: Smokers ?

Hard to beat a Masterbuilt electric. Reasonably priced, well built, 2 sizes, and efficient.. I know of several that are used a ridiculous amount by hardcore guys. Still going strong. I have the smaller 30" and I have never ran out of room.
