    Winchester Longbeard Turkey Loads

    biggest bird i killed fell to a 7.5 lead promo load. i accidentally brought a box of 3.5 " for my 3 " gun. my guide found it rolling around his pick up. big Merriams dropped like a rock . 40 yds, hit them in the head.and they die .

    Where Did My Turkeys Go?

    i'm in brockport to. the farm behind my place on 31 has been quiet. 27 acres, nobody has permission to hunt it. i'v e seen a few birds here and there. tried calling a bit without a gun. nada. i don't have private land to hunt. seen plenty of birds driving on 31. the birds seem to stay around for a few days , then move off.

    first youth hunt

    the boy has been bugging me to go turkey hunting. he had lacrosse practice saturday. so i took him the youth sunday. 2 minutes into the hunt he got it done . I've hunted the property over a hundred times and never heard a gobble prior. i'd rather be lucky than good. we accidentally set up too close. i thought the bird was farther away . we watched the bird fly down. the 2 yr old bird plowed through some nasty brush to strut for our decoy. my son was shaking pretty good , but managed to put plenty in the head. the fan took the worst of it. 7/8 spurs 7" beard. proud papa.

    i am a proud papa today

    congrats , i was watching the clock as well. my son killed his 2 minutes into his first hunt.

    Pigeon Shooting Near Rochester

    Advice for killing dogs?

    it 's really f ing hard. i kill some here and there. luck & time will have the greatest impact. you re not going to impact the population if that' s the goal. i' d pick a method i like and practice. trapping is the easiest way to sucess. expect to be skunked a lot. absolute blast once you figure it out.

    Nice mixed bag

    ugh , i' m on lockdown with the childrens.

    Need migration of new birds

    i had a lot of geese & ducks flying around noon today. wednesday it was a ghost town. plenty of wind and snow in rochester

    braddocks and the genesee piers

    went sunday ( summerville) lots of competition. nobody slaying 3 keepers 5 dinks. 4 hours or so of fishing

    pheasant release?

    anybody know if they are done releasing birds ? i heard rumors they quit once deer season starts.

    Ducks are extremely tough birds

    i keep a box of 7's handy. sounds strange, think turkey hunting. plus they' cheaper than burning a bunch of $ 1- 2shells. works best with geese, but i rarely need more than 1 shot with either. nothing worse than shooting 8 - 9 times and have a bird swim away.


    thats crazy, my covers are lucky to give up 2 flush per hour. first ticks ive found in years.

    Ducks on Canadian side

    woodies look great already. just ate one for diner.

    Elk Outfitter Recommendations

    i lived in CO for a few years. i always did diy hunts. always saw elk. archery ,muzzle loader would be my recommendation. if you have the cash, help is great. the co ranching for wildlife tags are a fantastic value. bad things can happen quickly in the west. no shame in having someone provide assistance. hauling elk without horses can be agonizing labor. a good wall tent is worth the $. good luck! wish i could afford a hunt out west. i'm hoping to set up a grouse camp with my wall tent this fall for a few days. the weather during rifle is very unpredictable.


    the boy is a good kid. honor role\ sports\video games. I consider myself lucky whenever he choses to go. lately he wants to fish . i had a blast, he took it hard. think puberty is kicking in . he was super awkward. normally , goalie reflexes make up for his inexperience. watched at least 5 birds fly away due to him messing up the saftey. roosters( even pen raised) still get me flustered. i was really proud of him passing on low birds. Can' t wait to see him connect.
