Re: Merriams vs easterns?

Last few years where I hunted Nebraska the pressure has gotten to the birds, tough to call in and numbers are down!

If you find I’m pressured birds out there you can not call too much!

Re: Who were your mentors?

My uncle Butch(John) was a hunting influence, but most of the hunting I got into he had never done, so I got to take him on many firsts, he was primarily a waterfowl hunter. He used to joke with us about archery Pronghorn hunting, can’t use his exact words but basically scoffed at hunting “goats”. F...

Re: Cracking the code to a strut zone gobbler?

I love ambushing those stubborn birds, I even call at em then hall as- over to the spot before them, worked a few times, they never know what hit em!

Love the comment about eliminating them from the gene pool!

Re: Code for BPI TSS

Maybe an 18.5 9.5 shot is like a 9 in 18?

Who cares as I am sure both are quite good!

Re: What pot call do I need to buy right now

Halloran, Sinclair but man there are many. I have killed a pile of birds with a Blodgett double trouble from 03, I really only use the slate side and it's really an amazing call, though I think it has more to do with my confidence in it!

Re: Midwest turkey decline

Bird numbers are down drastically in Nebraska where I hunt anyway, Illinois and Missouri are also down. Seems to be a huge population of nest robbers and no shortage of birds of prey either!

My sbe2 shoots dead on with the beads which I prefer, my 20ga sa20 is off a little and has truglo adjustable iron sights, do not care for them much but they work. Likely go to an optic next year.

Re: taking wife on her first time turkey hunt

My wife has killed a handful of birds, 2 with a bow, she is a fair weather hunter and just likes being out in the spring woods, if it’s slow I find her a sunny spot and she takes a nap usually! Been a few springs since she made it out which sux!

Re: What is the plan for afternoon hunting?

I killed a bird in Indiana a few years back late in the season, I think it was close to 8:45 when I killed him headed back to roost, thick timber and it was getting pretty dark in there, flames came out of the barrel on that one!

Re: Resident Hens?

The average life span a turkey is only a few years so i would say it is just a preferred roost area, unless you have only seen them a year or two?

Re: turkey eating

For the breast I simply divide into similar sized steaks and just grill it with olive oil salt and pepper, just make sure you get the temp right and its still juicy, delicious! Legs thighs and wings go into soup with wild rice.

Re: How long can you take it?

Always different, but half the birds I’ve shot in recent years were from my initial set in the morning, and many of those birds were shot after 9am and one at 11:30 last year.

I haven’t watched any turkey shows in a while. Will have to get YouTube and check these fellers out
Look at their past episodes, Aaron and the guys did some fine work, looking forward to seeing the new stuff this spring, I watch it during season due to being a turkey junky!
