Fall turkey season
« on: October 24, 2009, 04:55:10 PM »
I got to spend a few hours with my 11 year old son in the woods in the pouring rain this morning. We saw a dozen birds and I was not able to get him a shot. I was able to miss one though. maybe tomorrow.

Seen 17 toms in one bunch today 16 are still walking.
If Hunting is a sport does this make me an athlete?

Had 6 turkeys in my backyard today(can't shoot them).  They were absolutely huge.  I stand 5'4" and these came up past my waist and their bodies were gigantic.  Wish I could see them out in the woods. @--0--0109
Ethical hunting isn't just about perfect shot placement.  It's also the knowledge that you are an ethical hunter and a true sportsman.  Enjoy the hunt and the experience, whether you shoot something or not.   Live every day as if it's your last.
There's a reason it's called hunting, not shopping

After seeing those 4 toms and 4 hens with chicks visiting my yard pretty much all summer, I had high hopes for this fall season.  So far, it's been a bust.  The birds stopped coming way before the season opened on Oct 5.
