Re: 2021 Spring Hunting Plans

I'll open up Turkey Camp in a few weeks. I'm waiting for a weekend without rain and a high of 50F. Sometimes that's late Feburary. I've seen it go as far as the last weekend in March. From then until the start of season (this year it's 4/17) I spend as much time as possible in the field with my reco...

Re: Patience kills turkeys

I was a run and gun hunter for nearly 30 years. In 2008 I changed my tactics. This was due to losing a bunch of land to hunt. I had small parcels left and sitting around and being patient was the best option. I wish I would have figured this out 30 years ago but sitting in one spot and being patien...

Re: Patience kills turkeys

I am a rare turkey hunter. In fact, I don't know any other turkey hunter who's pulled off what I've done. I got laid off in 2008 and didn't go back to work for a couple of years. One thing that meant was that I had the whole turkey season to hunt any way I saw fit. I've got 200 acres in the Trans-Bl...

Re: Beginner's Guide

I've been down with the COVID for the past 10 days. However, the 4 installments were already in the pipeline and auto-published on my weblog even though I was bed ridden with fever. Yikes! I'm weak. I'm strung out, but at least I'm back in the saddle. I got on the weblog and found out y'all must hav...

Re: ISO CHEAP Out of state hunt

Try the Ohio Power Lands over by McConnelsville. There are plenty of gobs. You go to the OPC office and pay a nominal fee and get free run of the place-- campgrounds, and other facilities. Bring your bass rod too. The little ponds are full of big bass.

Beginner's Guide

I'm bringing on an apprentice at Turkey Camp this year. He's a 28-yr-old complete newbie. I figured I'd set down my thoughts on what to get and what to do, and share it with y'all. Here is the first installment. If I Were the New Guy at Turkey Camp Part I I've got several parts already written. More...

Bringing on an Apprentice

It's been a decade since I took on an apprentice turkey hunter. That was my buddy, SuperCore. Old age and a bum ticker got him out of the game a couple of seasons ago. My sons goaded one of their friends from high school into the sport. He's been invited to Turkey Camp this year. He's 28. He's never...

To Get Y'all in the Mood

One of my favorite things to do before season is to go out and gather audio of turkeys in the wild. I then go back home and turn it into podcasts. Here''s an example of one. I use it as the alarm on my smartphone. It's just a morning camped-out at my favorite listening post with hens and gobblers ro...

Re: Cracking the code to a strut zone gobbler?

First off, I am dying to see how this story turned out. Second: Cut N' Run, don't I know you from the T&TH site? Third: If this is who I think it is, then you'll know that I almost killed myself going after one of these Great White Whales years ago. The short version is I found a gob strutting out b...

Greetings from The Trans-Bluegrass

I just found this forum, and I thought I'd pop in and say hello. I am the patriarch of a deer/turkey camp in the Trans-Bluegrass of Kentucky-- more specifically in SW Bracken County. When I'm not being a bit jockey, I'm writing for the outdoors. I used to be a pro-staffer, but I never claimed to be ...
