    Shirt sounds fine by me. However I am not so sure about the first person to take a turkey via bow. Our seasons don't start at the same time do they? Ours is April 1st - May 31st Long season... I know!

    I wish mine started that early, Our early hunts don't start until the end of April. I'm saying the score of your first archery bird then whoevers is bigger. I will be hunting Ohio this year and think I may use the gun for one of the two tags there then I will only use a bow in Michigan

    Not sure yet. I just buy over the counter for private land. Thinking the 4/20 - 5/3 season, or might do the 5/4-5/31. Depends on how busy it is looking for me when it gets closer.


    Wow that is crazy. We are 10.7 miles from Piketon.

    Hey guys quick question what is a good decoy setup? I have a lone hen decoy but I was wondering if I need a jake and another hen or maybe two more hens.

    All depends, I have killed a decent amount of just one upright hen. I have had 4 decoys out and haven't been able to get them in. Just depends on there mood. Typically I like to run two hens (upright, and feeder or breeder) then also have a jake or strutter out

    I seen the avian X decoys and I the only problem I have with them is you can pack a bunch of them in and out easily.
