Re: Public Land Strategies

Throw out those blanket statements about "they don't know they are on public land" all you want but those SOBs sure know there's a lot more freaky looking camo clad blobs running around making hen calls (Gobbles even) on public land! :shock: I shudder to see the next wave of crazies crawling around...

Re: Public Land Strategies

The temptation is to go directly to the bird from the road and sit between the road and bird which is what most folks would do. If you can get around the bird and call on the opposite side, sometimes this can make the difference.

Re: Public Land Strategies

Jaybird, public land birds are the main course for me. Private land birds are dessert. I feel fortunate to have been primarily a public land hunter because educated public land birds will teach lessons about turkey hunting that carry over to hunting private property birds more so than vice versa.

Re: Public Land Strategies

Turkeybuster and I've hunted the same public land since its first season in 1977. The birds are in the same places they were when we first started. One dead giveaway for a listening spot is t.p. Toliet Paper. Folks can't help but do their daily devotional when they first get out the truck and listen...

Re: seat cushions

The place I hunt in TX has a fleet (2) of those old bright red Toyota pick-ups circa 1980s. The ranch hand can plug a tire in two minutes and needs to be able to as I've never seen a place like that ranch where bushes and plants can flatten tires quicker than a roofing nail.

Re: Lost my best box call....

A friend lost an old acorn shaped striker (a peg surrounded by a wooden cup). His grandfather had made it. I found it in a public area, recognized it and gave it back to him. He was ecstatic.

Re: Lost my best box call....

Chuck was a proponent of breaking through a hatch, particularly the parlep (#22-24) with either a black ant or elk hair beetle, #16-18 dry. We used a lot of "Skinny Nelsons" (version of a PT nymph) and mahogany dun emerger's during that hatch. Fun days in the fall after Labor Day.

Re: Lost my best box call....

Toasty, I haven't fished the Ranch in 20 years. I was lucky and fished it in the late 70s through the 80s when it was at its best. I understand it is on the rebound. We'd usually go in at the mailbox, fish up past Bonefish and back down stream not quite to Osborne, staying on the Ranch. There's no p...

Re: Lost my best box call....

In the same vein, but more in the line of destruction than loss: A buddy hunted a Neil Cost box call and it got wet. He put it in the oven to dry at a low setting, forgot about it and came back to find very expensive charcoal. I had Winston 3 wgt. graphite flyrod and a 2 7/8" Hardy Perfect with line...

Re: seat cushions

Air cushions are fine in a thornless environment that doesn't include Rio country in Terrell County, TX. There is no way that one can survive there based on my experience.

Re: fall hunters?

I wouldn't be interested being in the same woods with deer hunters with rifles during the fall. I also remember the great Ben Lee's comment about some biologists' belief that killing fall hens didn't impact the population. "How do I know if the hen I killed legally in the fall season wouldn't have e...

Re: cheap Wal-Mart calls

I hunted a Lil' Duece this season and liked it because of size and sound. My all-time favorite mouth call is a Perfection Raspy D and I bought dozens at a season's end close-out price of $2 @ about 10-12 years ago from Wally World.

Nice looking call. Ipe dust is reputed to be toxic, causing severe allergic reactions in some folks. It is also loaded with silica. Be careful in sanding and wear appropriate breathing protection.

Re: My New Everyday Carry.

I've got the PM9 and PM380. Night sights on the 9. I carry a Ruger LCP 380 daily. The PM380 is not broken-in so still a few hiccups. The Ruger and PM9 don't. Only complaint about the LCP is the sights. MY PM380 is buried in the safe, but here are the other two. I like Buffalo Bore in the 380 Ruger. ...
