Re: How High

I had a doe like that years ago and she would always look right at me in a tree and blow. It was when I first got my crossbow. I would see her come out in a field corner every other night from the woods . I decided since I wouldn't have to try and draw the crossbow to sit in some bushes just off the...

Re: Trying something new this spring

Dan check out New Days Outdoors on the youTube he is a Indiana guy . W.M. In tried to watch but most of the turkey hunts are sitting in a blind hunting over decoys and if you've seen one of those well you've seen them all ! Boring lo I like these guys videos ! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jONU_K...

Re: Risks To Our Environment And Hunting

I kinda laugh as I walk my dog past 3 schools everyday and the amount of garbage I pick up from the kids worried about the death of the planet we caused is amazing !

Re: Surburban Deer

One of the family groups is a group of 4 does one of which is about double the size of the other 3 and is obviously the matriarch. These deer are very skittish and very difficult to catch in the daylight. The old doe is a real pain in my [email protected]#!! She is conscious of every tree and leaf in the woods. I...

Re: Surburban Deer

You have to have 3 acres to hunt and a $2 million liability policy to bowhunt where I live, so there is nobody hunting. The deer are nearly fearless. There is lots of open school district property behind my house and I walk my dogs (bird dogs) off leash there. Frequently deer are grazing on clover ...

Re: Good news for Quebec hunters

First time I hunted birds in the fall I went in before dark and sat right in the middle of about 50 birds of various types (hens, jennies and jakes ) I could not believe the noise they made when waking up in the morning ! I was then able to break them up and call back a couple. It was neat hearing a...

Re: Trying something new this spring

Just my 2 cents but in total truth ....l would rather hunt with my excalibur than with a .410. Or any shotgun for that matter. A big ol super freak extreme or spit max will drop a big bird just as good and no need to resight your bow from deer season . Best of all ...no noise from the tent..my brot...

Re: Trying something new this spring

I've killed about 35 turkeys over the years and I agree with Jansey - a 410 seems a little light for turkeys. To my mind it would be in the ballpark with using a .22 rimfire for deer. You might succeed but you're probably under gunned. A full choke 410 is similar to shooting a rifle at close range ...

Re: Grits

Awesome ! Great time of year with lots of prime wild game meat in the freezer. I just did up a pot of Antelope chili and making lasagna tomorrow. But most times a nice grilled backstrap in hard to beat. :thumbup:

Re: Good news for Quebec hunters

Just wondering is Turkey hunting in the fall the same process as spring? Depends if you are targeting hens and jennies or old toms. I have had toms come in on a string like in the spring but mostly they are tough to hunt in the fall. As far as hens (mixed group) if you can break a flock it can be f...

Re: OT: Christmas Came Early!

Very nice. I used to enjoy shooting some of the different hand guns that the public turned in at our range, before most of them were sadly destroyed ! Be nice if you could use it to hunt with but I guess you would need to scope it (sorry couldn't resist). I really like the model 94 years ago I had a...
