    Nov 27 Roll Call

    Figure I’m far enough away from Owen that I won’t booger up Ezel’s superbooner… Who’s out, who’s in? Filling the freezer or drilling a geezer? (I don’t think we use that word for deer but it rhymed pretty good.)

    Urban Turkey Ridiculousness

    My in-laws live in Madison, Wisconsin. Turkeys Ga Lore. There was a Tom with about a ten inch beard about 6’ from the front door; I was on a run one morning, and got close enough to a Jake that I coulda kicked it; and a hen and nine poults let me get within 15’. Photodocumentation below:

    Virginia’s magic burgoo season

    So as I have mentioned, I got started hunting in Boyle County, but have now moved to Virginia. I’ve stuck around this forum because I’ve learned so much, and I like y’all. Plus, where I hunt isn’t that different from Kentucky. Except for this: VA bear firearm season is Nov 23-Jan 2 Whitetail...

    It's another Rage post

    Pop your corn, boys... Just kidding, this is just a pic of the doe my buddy shot yesterday. Pass-through, blood trail, and a severed front leg. He said she still went 20 yards. Confirmed: Rage broadhead, out of a Ravin. That's a winch line around her neck, case anyone's wondering.

    Real quick on range finders

    How bad a call can you get away with?

    I’m new to this, and I’m pretty bad at it. I just haven’t seen many birds in the wild, or had the time to practice. how bad can a guy suck at calling turkey’s before he’s just wasting his time? Have you heard ridiculous squawks that resulted in dead birds? Thanks y’all.

    Hunting out of a non-truck

    Season's over, time for wide-ranging topics. Anybody else hunt out of something other than a pick-up? For hunting, seems like there's a couple real big plusses to the truck: 1. Ability to go off-road 2. Easy to throw a whole deer in the box These days I don't need to go off road in a...

    Squirrel vs deer sound

    Where I am it’s been dry, leaves have come down, and at least this morning, squirrels are REAL busy. I do t think I’ve gone ten seconds without hearing one rustle the leaves, and it’s got my head on a d$&n swivel. Funny thing is, I realize I haven’t HEARD most of the deer I’ve ever shot. But...
