Re: Ghost blinds

Just a heads up I have owned and used ghost blinds for several seasons. I have the large one and the runner version as well. They do best when you can have some brush in front of them. Make sure you try them out in different situations where you are going to hunt because the sun can glare off of the...

Re: Chufa- Is it worth it?

I have planted Chufa several times specifically for turkeys and I will give you my experiences: 1st time: I also live in VA and at the time we had a lease in Appomattox VA. We planted the chufa in mid spring because of the long growth time. By the time the fall season came around the grass had grown...

Re: TSS #3 shot on coyote crossbow video.

Bob,

I just watched the furtakers episode where you hammered 4 coyotes on one sit all within 20 yards of the caller and that was simply amazing. Al was so pumped up after 3 coyotes and started going crazy and you told him to keep it down and the 4th came in right after that.

Keep up the great work!

Re: Thanks to the pioneers of Tss!

Yes, thank you to all of these guys. I have bought shot from Hal and he got me started on some awesome loads and plenty of TSS for turkeys. The cool thing is I got so into TSS I started using it for deer loads as well. Hal was able to get me setup on that end and some nasty loads as well. I was able...

Re: Flextone Thunder Chick

The new flextone series is pretty nice. I picked up the flextone jake to fill in a set to go with a extra dsd hen. The jake is decent but no where the visual quality or size of the avian-x jake. The hens are closer to the avian-x hens then the jake is for sure. For half of the price it is pretty dif...

Those are unreal. Feel sorry for the birds in that area! They are probably like the king is dead and the party started after that one went down.

Glad I talked myself into going out in the nastiness this morning. My dad and I went out to some public land this morning for a little pain and suffering in the rain. We had went out yesterday afternoon and did some scouting in the rain. We walked a good ways in several different areas and finally f...

My Dad's First Spring Gobbler

My dad has been working to get his first gobbler on the ground for a couple of years now. He has hunted for a long time but never hunted for gobblers until I started hunting them hard a couple of years ago. He has definitely put in his time and it finally paid off. I went with him the Friday before ...

Re: i have onle one rule if you hunt with me.

Just to give everyone a small piece of knowledge. Did you know a jake tastes the same as a gobbler maybe better? Just like a yearling doe tastes as good as a Boone and Crockett buck. Just letting you guys know in case this was the reason you wouldn't shoot a jake. If your a trophy hunter then have a...

Re: Afternoon Double in MS

Great job guys. Beautiful birds! You scared the gobblers in the area so much you were able to train that one to stand and pose with the two you already shot in fear for his life. What kind of decoy is that?

Great mounts especially the first one that has both birds. If I had that many turkey mounts I would have to build two additions to hold them all.
