    It's warm out here in hunstville TX. Here for training. Maybe go look for some sheds if I have time.

    Meanwhile back home the birds are playing this morning. ccc26fad-401f-4d79-9a12-9c0b5692d3eb.jpeg

    Me and a buddy of mine are plotting some turkey hunting and shenanigans that will surely follow us. We grew up together and we're like brothers, but we haven't hunted together in probably 12 years or so. I called in his biggest gobber in 09 or 10 one. He was still half drunk when he showed up late and we had to climb straight up the side of a mountain about 800 feet. Was a fun bleeping day. Anyway, I'm officially excited to get after some mountain gobblers.

    Figured since the only activity here has been the water cooler rants and politics, I'd try to post some actual hunting related topics.

    Walked like 4 to 5 miles today. Nothing earth shattering sign wise but I did find a back entrance into a spot. So instead of walking 1.5 miles through where the deer are travelling back to bed I can sneak in on an island for about 2.5 miles and come in clean through a rock bridge. Found a bunch of bur oaks and a few large tracks.

    @LittleChief invited me out to his Arkansas hunting club’s annual shoot. Brought my boys along, here is the novelty shot at the end of the shoot: the Zipline Buck.

    Yeah, his hand-eye coordination and vision is incredible. He has placed top three, if not first, in every kids division shoot that he has been in.

    I took him trap shooting for the first time over Christmas break. He broke a clay on his second shot. He then broke 6/10 the rest of the day. I need to get him a youth model shot gun. He would have done more shooting, but, holding a full sized shotgun tired his arms out pretty quick.

    You should see him play baseball, he plays and reacts like the game is in slow motion for him compared to all the other kids out there.

    Out shed hunting and came across a killer scape and rub on public land. Going to check it out again in the future and put up a camera nearby. 20230315_115200.jpeg

    Guessing that tree gets rubbed annually?
    What kind is it?

    Looks like a sourwood tree to me. Hard to tell, but thats my best guess.

    Looks like it gets worked a bit. Not sure on the tree type. Did not pay much attention to that. This tree is only about 50 yards away as well. Didn't stumble across this other one until the other day walking for sheds. 20230208_120936.jpeg

    Just had some deer come through our yard and walk down the road in front of our house… We live smack dab in the middle of town. They must be getting real desperate for food now with all of this snow/late winter.

    I just wanna say thank you to all you, fine gentlemen and ladies, for what i would call thee absolute best entertainment on the internet. i read all 13,254 posts and enjoyed every single one of them. i especially enjoyed the unexpected ( though after a while it shouldve been expected ), "arrow launched"! you guys got me through 2 straight weeks of night shift 12's.

    i have been absent on the forums for a little over a year, due to the website being banned on PC at work (which understandably got me booted from the contest). now that i figured out i can access it via this app Tapatalk, i plan on being more active again.

    Congrats to everyone on their season, whether it was success or lessons learned.

    i had great encounters this past bow season, had shot opportunities on 3 different buck, one would of been my biggest, all to know avail.

    Nov 8th, i had an 18 yd chip shot on a beautiful 8 pt that was turned into a leg flesh wound by a small twig i didn't see before i released. (he would end up being harvested on neighboring property 2nd day of rifle season )

    November 9th, i missed clean low on a busted up 7pt at last light ( i eventually shot this buck 2nd week of rifle season )

    On November 11th, i clipped the bottom of blind window, with the big guy stopped perfectly in the plot at 40 yds, and my arrow shanked into the ground about 20 yds away.. he bounded off, and i haven't seen him since...

    here they are, in order..

    Live from the turkey woods.
    Sitting in a blind this morning, hoping to coax a Tom into range. Nothing answering so far, will give it a while longer and will then run and gun to try to strike a gobble.

    Planning out this year's food plots.
    I am planning on pumpkins for this plot. Pumpkins get planted around June 5th. Hope this is all gone by then.
    And yeah, it's still 5' deep at the far end. Lol

    Nothing talking around the blind, so set out to see if I could find one. Lots of good sized snow drifts that steered me in different directions than I wanted to go. After a couple hours I was working my way back to the pickup, still stopping and calling once in a while. Ended up suddenly getting an answer, too close to set out a deke, just had to get hid quickly. Ended up getting a hen stirred up and talking, the Tom only gobbled twice. I mimicked the hen and cut her off a lot trying to get her mad, but she never came closer than about 50 yards. The whole flock followed her but none of them would veer away from following her.
    There were a good 20 or so birds in the flock, fun encounter. Maybe next weekend I can find a lone tom that is easier to call in.
    Talking my son to a 3d shoot tomorrow, first one with his new bow and using a release, peep, and sights. Should be fun. 40 target marked yardage shoot.
