Yo hatchet1,

NICE work..........

2 for 1 sale today, when we went out for 5 days we were hoping to get a chance and some birds and pigs. You saw many birds but no pigs it was a great hunt anyway because I harvested my first turkey on 4/7/2008.

Going out this weekend CAN NOT WAIT !!!!!!!!

here,s how it went down,went up yesterday afternoon in search the elusive wild hog,while glassin for hogs
the sound of gobblers headin to the roost for the evening got me thinkin, i,ll glass um up to see
where there headin, and in the morning take a srtoll over with the 3 1/2
i get to my spot with no time
to spare[after the nights activity,it was a late one ,please see hog forum for that story}before i even hit the box call
i hear a lone gobble come from one off the giant roost trees, i get set up quickly as i start to get gobble fever
knowing its fixin to go down,no sooner did i tuck myself into the brush,than i hear the big boy fly off the roost gobblin the way!!
he heads to the other side of the ridge about 100yds[go fiqure}here is the delemma, do i abort or do i stick to my wing man
and hold my ground....after dealing with these turkeys for many seasons, ive found it best in the late season like we are in now,
to hold your ground,especially when a tom is by himself lookin for love, at this point i through some chatter his way ,
he thunders back,i through him a love purr he thunders back, i know he,s coming, i see his rubber neck stick up at
about 75 yds, and its on!! he struts abit on top the ridge givin me a show

as i remain silent{key factor} he cant take it anymore and in moves in to try see the girl that he
thinks he will slay for the day, he gets to about 25 yds struttin the whole way, i have the 3 1/2 at full shoulder
i move abit and thats all it took, he straightens up givin me a nice long neck and head and KA-POW!!
at the report off the 12 gauge it was all over but the floppin
this is my 3rd and final bird for the season all though i have 2 hunters coming in the last weekend off gun season for a combo,in all honesty
there really is nothing more heart poundin to me than a nice big tom coming in for some love only
to meet his maker and the bbq!! {maybe a monster muley starin you down at 50 yds in the snow while you have a tag in your pocket}

negative on runnning the guide service,i did for quite a number of years, and also worked as an
apprentice for some time in 2 states, i still hold my license and keep my bond and insurance as i do have
some repeat hunters that i take out know and then, once my boys were born, it was decision time
as the guide buisness is very,very, demanding if you want to make any money and be sucessful!!
now its all for fun and the kids with the ocassional hunters, deer season is pretty busy for me though.
something about the horn porn that i cant let go...
thanks for replys boys, until next time

Well you certainly have the knack for shooting those pigs and turkeys. WTG! Horn porn is good.
