    Turkey with a bow

    Over the past 5 years I have done well with turkey hunting. I really enjoy it and I'm looking forward to this season. I have decided to leave the 870 at home and go after them with my bow. I'd be interested in hearing anything useful from those who have taken turkeys with bows. Thanks.

    decent bird, had to work for him a bit

    Yesterday I got the blind and hen decoy set up in the dark where I heard a gobbler on opening day and make the mistake of trying to move closer to the bird. The edge of a field with a fair mount of woods behind me where they roost. I think I scared him off on Monday. First light comes and I hear...

    Has this happened to you? if so how did you handle?

    In the last six months this has happened to me twice, once with a co-worker and once with a barber cutting my hair. Both guys in their mid-thirties.

    looking for advice on shooting clays

    I didn?t call this trap or skeet because I am not doing either. I am simply shooting clays at this point. I did it for the first time a few weeks ago and I?m addicted. Really fun. I am hitting about 75% of what goes up. Since I have very little experience with this I figured it would be worth...

    sick fox?

    Saw this fox taking a leak 6:30 Saturday morning at the top of my street. Soaking wet, eyes all skwinty. Did not seem to have a ton of energy. Was wondering if it was sick, rabid maybe? Kind of a weird site.

    coyote call help

    I'm looking forward to taking out a coyote or two. I was able to take a 50 yard running shot at one (missed) while deer hunting and it peaked my interest . I'm wondering if there is a call out there that sells for under $50 that is worth buying? I'd prefer one with a remote and noticed this was...
