This is my front yard, now.

this was before the season got properly started- but it shows some hopeful numbers at my feeder- I saw a big Tom on camera too but so far he has been elusive. I hope the late season will be better

Hey buddy.. Their out here every moring gobbling away. I just have not had the time to mess with them yet. I'll shoot one for supper in a day or two. Flock looks good, and they look real healthy. After all the fires we had last year i am glad to see this. With no rain to speak of and no winter at all here, we got plenty of grubs and hoppers and stuff for them to eat, and the winter wheat is is fair to midland. Rain would help !

Haven't you got one yet amigo ?



Bless ya man
Good hunting !

Nice!

Spent a lot of time in your area (family is from Draper/Radford area), looking forward to a fall hunt this year!

I grew up in Draper then spent nearly 35 years in Alaska.
Now I'm retired and hunt and fish any time I want.... unless it is raining.

Around here there is a deer in every patch of woods.
And a couple less turkeys.

After this very mild winter you should have great hunting.

i wish we could hunt turkey with either a .22 or a handgun. that sounds fun. my brother has a silenced .22 that would make it too easy.

i go it the hard way...i use archery tools.

I did that once. He flew away with my arrow but landed on the next ridge. I had expected a complete pass-through because I usually get a pass-through on deer.
I circled and got above him.
He flew back to where I first shot him.
So I sneaked back around and finished him with another arrow.
I suspect I need a different broadhead for turkeys.

22 magnum has to be my favorite. Especially for those gobblers that seem to know the range of a shotgun and strut around 60 yards out.
A couple years ago I acquired a huge double-barreled 10 gauge. It will reach out and get-em but it is heavy!
I've never taken a turkey with a muzzleloader, so next season....

I was talking with some NC guys at the Morganton shoot last weekend and they can hunt turkeys only in counties along the VA/NC border and then only with shotguns.
My comment was, "I'd move!"

So true.

I killed 2 with the dynapoint lead projectile. Noway ( look my screenz name ) would my shotgun been able to hit them at the distance they where shot at.
