Neither one of them said “frank is great” so they didn’t slip in from Turkinator.. I don’t understand the “frank is great” or the old masters thing?

Yup,...I would interpret that to mean that to mean you can't use the gun. However, this also just goes to show the questionable intelligence of those that write the regulations.

Perfect, thank you. I appreciate it. Looks like a new gun is in the future then. A new gun would be the simplest solution to the problem,...even if more costly.

Re: Oklahoma's new game management plan??

At least part of this is about changing hunter attitudes. In times of plenty, regulations are set generously to allow for the increased hunting opportunity that the resource provides. Hunters get accustomed to being able to hunt more and kill more birds. It is difficult to reverse that expectation w...

You probably won't get away from "high altitude" as compared to lowlands in Georgia, but you can probably find a private ranch set up where you can stay on relatively flat ground and not need to climb a mountain. I would suspect that Gobblenut has some good advice on where to look. Wish I could giv...

Good links to show the process. For those not wanting to invest in a press or jig, just substitute taping the reeds down for stretching the reeds the way the links indicate. ....Works just fine, saves money.

I won't drag anybody through the mud here about how they turkey hunt.

Hence, some of the comments m...
