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: How was your season?

Jekyl and hyde for me, either the easiest birds Ive ever killed or nearly impossible! Took me more days to kill one Missouri bird than my last 5 combined, but every day I hunted Illinois either calling for someone or myself a bird died and one day a double. Then Got to Nebraska and killed one the fi...

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!

Re: bead or scope

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!

Re: Shotguns that don't need optics (need one)

So if you change the way you anchor the gun it will not effect poi? It will change the angle you are looking at the bead...if you bury your face into it and look flat down the rib it won't change but with normal cheek pressure it would have to change.

Different than shims but same concept, i know it is different than wing shooting but adjusting the gun fit will move poi.

Re: Shotguns that don't need optics (need one)

Keep in mind that the guns are designed to fit the average sized guy, if you are large or small it will cause issues. With a single barreled gun a trip to a good gun smith or even just playing with spacers provided in many guns will give you the poi/poa you want!!! Think about it, take the same gun ...
