Went out opening morning and got my dad a nice Tom at some private land. I had been patterning 6 birds out there since March. Went back out the next day (Sunday) with the bow and had the group of 4 toms come out. Shwacked on with the bow while they were all beating up the jake decoy. Was happy i got one of my target birds. Decided to go out Monday afternoon. The wind died down and I hit the call.... Read More

  • 9 1/2in beard 1in spurs
After a long couple weeks and plenty of close calls I finally got another bird on the ground. Went to a spot I had hunted a few weeks ago and knew there were birds in the area. Got set up in the ground blind with my son around 540am. Nothing answered the owl hoots but the first crow flew over and he sounded off about 80yds away in some tall pines on the edge of the field. I waited a few minutes.... Read More

Well we started out this morning about 9 am with not much luck. We sat for an hour and decided to go back to the house because it was really windy. After taking a lunch break and hangin out for a while my son and I headed back out to the field. We set up around 345 and I put out my jake and feeding hen decoy. After a few yelps and some soft purrs about every 15 minutes on the friction call three.... Read More

these 3 have been visiting regularly, unfotunately they logged a big chunk of woods right up to the field edge and now they are gone. im guessing they have just moved off because of all the noise and hope they will return in a week or so.

last year i tried out my feeder hen and had 2 hens and 2 toms come up and feed right next to her. sothis year i figured id add the jake to the mix. hopefully they work out for me again. they arent the cheapest things out there but worth the money... my hen survived a week in the woods in VA. when i went back to get her she was knocked down the hill but still inflated.

Well i had a great 2 day hunt in VA for the opener of turkey and deer season. First morning i saw some hens and as the circled around my set up i look up and saw a nice 7pt. opted to pass because he was a young deer. Later that evening i set up between to ridges and did a fighting purr about 4pm... i look up a few minutes later and here came 3 hens and 2 toms in toe behind them. i let the hens.... Read More

  • 1st deer of the season
Well yesterday morning was uneventfull. only saw one nice buck cross at 65yd and couldnt see my pins yet. so this morning i figured i would sneak back in there where he crossed and try to get on him. right at day light i was greeted by a bear crashing through the woods. shortly after that around 7AM a doe and young spike worked there way through the thicket. i readied myself and drew back only.... Read More

Killed this Tom on Saturday afternoon. It was probably 35mph winds and cold so i figured i would go sneaking through the bottoms and see what i could find. i came around a bend and saw him strutting with 2 other toms and a hen. waited till he moved off then snuck up under a spruce tree and gave a couple yelps. he came right back into where he had been and came to investigate. walked into 15yds.... Read More
