Re: Thank you for joining GobblerNation!

Don't do FaRcebook so definitely thankful for sites like this one! Thank you! I second this! I'm in this boat - not on social media other than the forums and I really enjoy stopping here. Reading the TSS threads and the patterning results just fascinates me. I remember when we started shooting the ...

Re: Mouth Calls vs Friction Calls and Trumpet style calls

I always carry a box. Often times two, and on occasion three. I always carry a long box or a mini boat; there is nothing more successful in yanking a gobble than these style box calls for me. If its raining I carry a waterproof production short box, I am that committed to their effectiveness. Run an...

Re: only 1 gun to turkey hunt with

Spur - I bought this gun brand new about 20 years ago, and sold it after patterning it with just four rounds of 3.5" - I literally was black and blue down my arm and across my chest. I never considered shooting 3" until after I replaced it with a pump, and regretted selling it ever since. This parti...

Re: only 1 gun to turkey hunt with

This. 12 gauge H&R, factory dipped, with a .660 JH choke and front/rear fiber optic sight added by Sumtoy. If I could change one thing about it, I should've asked Sumtoy to take 3 or 4 inches off the barrel.

Re: Can You?

Gets harder every year. I started a journal in high school, and got away from it for years. Came back about 15 years ago, but again never kept up with it. I do appreciate what I did write, capturing things that happened in the woods that I had forgotten from long ago. Excellent post - something we s...

One tactic in your bag of tricks...

Curious....What one tactic in your bag of spring turkey tricks you learned from a mentor or through hard-earned experience seems to produce or at least shift odds your way? Me, learned a long time ago if I strike a bird re-positioning forward, or if terrain dictates moving parallel of his position b...

Re: By Request – Rover Pipeline Pumping Station – 03/11/18

I would venture to say they are not operational, under their Title V permit they are tracking the amount of particulate matter generated from driving on that unpaved road as part of their overall emissions.

Personally, the "right way" for me is to just wander around aimlessly in the woods until I find one that is hell-bent on committing suicide. All the rest of them can just stay there as far as I'm concerned. :mrgreen:
Me too. Figure if I'm there eventually I'll trip across one ready to go.

FastFire III battery life

Quick question about the FFIII. Assuming I left the unit on, from sun up to sun down, and only turned it off at the end of the day, how many days would a battery last? Assuming brand new battery on day one, not left over from last year. Just estimated service life is what I'm curious about. Thanks f...

Re: Turkey and Turkey Hunting Magazine

I was a long, long time subscriber, and disappointed when it was canceled. I'm a big Jim Spencer fan, another one of our turkey hunting literary greats, so I'll support Mr. Spencer anyway I can. I'm buying off the news stand if his work is in it.

Re: Outstanding diaphragm calls?

IMO I think most calls are the same. Same cuts, a lot of same stretches. Everyone uses same latex. So, I think it's kinda all the same. Everyone uses same type press I agree with Roy, and add the differences between callmakers for me personally is twofold - first is comfort and second is consistenc...

Re: Durn straight!

I see the author's point, but blinds have a place. I don't use a blind, never used one, but those who do step inside a blind most often don't have access to half million + acres of public forested land within a 3-hour drive. So, if I hunted field edges on a couple hundred acre lease I'd own a blind ...
