Re: 16 Gauge Club

I have an old J.C HIGGINS Bolt-Action action 16 Gauge. Barrel is about 28" and is marked- Full. Takes just 2 3/4" shells. The Piece that fits underneath to feed Shells is long gone. Just one shell at a time. Safety has to be pushed Backwards to be off. Patterns really good last April at 35 Yards. To...

Re: Who Here Has Never Taken A Private Land Spring Gobbler-- But One Day Would Like To?

I have other Honey Holes that are all over 1 mile in on Public Group in both NY+ NJ. I might save the Long walks for the 2nd day. The Wild Turkey Population seems to be still increasing in my area.

Re: Who Here Has Never Taken A Private Land Spring Gobbler-- But One Day Would Like To?

Well Swampchicken-- I live about 50 miles North of NYC. Anti-Hunting sentiment is kind of High in my area. I gave up on knocking on doors. However , I do have a few good Secluded spots that must be as good as Private Land within a 1/4 mile of the road. I wrote about this today over at Oldgobbler-- T...

Who Here Has Never Taken A Private Land Spring Gobbler-- But One Day Would Like To?

That would be me. Only 3 Times on Private Lands with my 30th Spring coming up. Plenty of Birds taken-- but one day, I would like to add at least 1 Private Land Gobbler to the bag.

Fall Update--- 0 for 11 Days in NY-- But 1 Day Success In NJ.

New York was a Bust this Fall. I had fun hiking with a gun for 11 days out of our short 14 day Fall Season. I called up 4 young Gobblers on my 1st day in New Jersey though! The one, I shot weighed out at 18.4lbs at the Check Station. Just a young heavy guy. He had 1/2" spurs and a 5" beard.

How Many Members Here Has Taken A Nice Jake Or Jenny On The Wing?

This usually happens for me when, I am Pheasant Hunting and the Fall Turkey Season is open. If you are a good Wingshot with the Pheasants-- a Plump Jake or Jenny usually comes down easy.

Re: if money was no object.

I would buy at least 400 acres and post it very good! Always been my dream since, I took up Turkey Hunting in 1990 to own my Hunting Land. Open Hardwoods with a creek running through next to a huge field. That is what, I would want!!

Plenty of deer here--- but so many that most seem on the small side. Plenty of wild Turkey as well.Highland Lakes State Park is another that h...

I think this coming Fall,I will get out much earlier in New Jersey when their Season opens in NOV. Last few years, I am seeing more and more Hikers getting out extra early. Even around Sunrise.. Public Lands are getting Tougher-LOL!

Re: FALL TURKEY HUNTING...

Sure they Gobble! Rare for mature Gobblers- but, when, I cut-- the Jakes often open up with those 1/2 gobbles. Then, I can scatter that flock to the 4-winds- have some time to make a quick blind and call them back.
