Sounds like a great family tradition. Hold onto it tightly.
That is freakin awesome! Great story with pictures to enhance the feeling of being there.
An idiot and his money! He should put some of that money to real use and track Zombies or something.
OMG! That is nasty. Does this prove that Bear is the ultimate survivalist since he didn't get bit?
Good advice, Steve. My son and I experienced all of the above on opening weekend. I have never targeted a flock of birds or a single Tom that has acted like another. We stuck it out in the rain and snow and eventually killed a good gobbler that my son had whiffed on in the morning. The turkeys sure did seem extra weary when they came back in, but thankfully (I guess) we were drenched and matched our soggy surroundings.
Not much snow left here where I am in Mt. Flocks are still rather large, with lots of showboating by the jakes and then the Toms will run them off a ways. I expect pretty quick here the big flocks will break up. It's supposed to be 68 above zero here tomorrow. Bring on Spring turkey season.
I will also comment on sights. I have tried really hard to fall in love with a Truglo red dot sight on my turkey gun, but I can't. I seem to never be able to have the darn thing turned on at just the right time. I'm always worried about running the battery down and usually have it turned off. So to that point, I've missed some shots when a gobbler comes out of nowhere. What I have settled for is I put some Truglo gobble dots on both my Mossberg and my my son's 870. They seem to get the job done pretty well. So, that Truglo red dot resides on my son's gopher gun. Works great there.
Oh Ok. I guess you're allright, you do have an 870 in there.
What about the slung through mud 835?? Or 535 or 870?
