Re: Black Hills Bound

Spent four days hunting in the Wyoming portion of the Black Hills. I hunted all public land, as I did in South Dakota. Did not find very many birds and had to move around a lot. Finally killed one around 2:00 PM on the fourth day. All in all, it’s been a great trip to the Black Hills and a wonderfu...

Re: Before Pulling the Trigger

I quick draw most birds that my barrel isn't already on, but I'm in more open country. I'm also picking the time to do it and not just doing it at random. I've done it to Easterns and Merriam's, but it's probably easier to get away with a Merriam's that has less pressure. It's more likely to go wron...

Re: Officer involved suspects death

I've stayed away from the majority of the news out there for the last month, so I've not seen anything about it. Same here. But I made a comment on Facebook that I would reserve judgment until all facts are clear. Told I was taking a murderers side basically That's typical of this crazy social medi...

anyone flown anywhere lately to go turkey hunting? :old_glory:
I have not, but I've not done it before either. I'll have to some day, if I ever want to hunt Florida. It's too far from MT to drive. I could do it, but I'd burn way too much time on the road.

Re: Black Hills Bound

I definitely took the time for my wife and daughter to get to do several things in 2 days in between me hunting. Thankfully I killed one early thursday morning and we were able to see mount rushmore and crazy horse. plus get good coffee in Spearfish, Deadwood and in Sturgis. Couldn't believe all th...

Re: Black Hills Bound

I've decided against Wyoming. I'd love to do it because this ends my season. However, I didn't come alone and it would be selfish of me to not just spend time with my wife here. If I was alone, it'd be a different story altogether. I do have a buddy from CO that is here bowhunting that I may meet u...

Re: Black Hills Bound

After the storm this afternoon the sun popped out & it was on! Had a 3 birds gobbling & 1 decided to investigate. Bad choice on his part as my wife smacked him with her little 28ga mossy. Absolutely beautiful scenery! I'll try to post pics when I get home. That bird strutted & gobbled a ton. Had th...

Re: Black Hills Bound

It stormed hard this afternoon complete with hail. I did a lot of driving. I saw two hens and heard zero gobbles. One hen after the storm was drenched. I'll look for one again tomorrow.

Re: Black Hills Bound

Hunted until 10:30. I saw one hen. Clouds have gotten dark. I'm eating lunch with my wife then heading out to look at new country. If it's storming, I'll just be driving. I don't mind a little rain, but heavy rain with thunder, lightning, and wind isn't something I'm interested in. I'll find them......

Re: Black Hills Bound

Not a peep so far. Was raining and blowing at daylight, but improved since then. Although the wind is picking up at least up high on this point. The search continues.
Thunderstorms forecast for afternoon.

Re: Black Hills Bound

I had very little time this evening. My original plan was to be here at noon and have all afternoon to scout/hunt. That didn't happen, so I did what I could and drove a loop through the hills. I found a place that I'll start from in the morning, but I didn't hear anything this evening. It's supposed...

I'm on the road. We are getting fuel in Sheridan. We should be there by 7 PM. Hopefully I'll get to drive around and listen a little before dark.

Re: Black Hills Bound

I won't make it there until late Friday afternoon. I was unable to complete something that needs done before I leave. I'm hoping to at least do some driving and scouting tomorrow evening.
