10 posts in this topic

Last Sunday I saw three large toms at full strut in a hay field,am I wrong or are the birds still trying to breed in the middle on June? Just thought it was a bit late??? Opinions>

I saw a bunch last week and two weeks ago. I'm no wildlife biologist, but I suspect there might have been some re-nesting with cool temps and rain.

I too have been seeing strutters here and there. Had one gobbling while I was fishing last weekend. Must have gobbled 100 times. Funny, had a mouth call in the boat, no response to it on Saturday, but Sunday they couldn't get enough of it. Thought one was gonna fly right onto lake.

I predicted during our May season that the birds will be gobbling and strutting until mid July, well here it is June 27th and this is what I saw today on the way to work. I wonder how long it will continue? If I didn't have to be at work I would have tried to work this bird just to see if I could get him in range. smile

Here it is July 22 and today I saw 2 birds strutting over one hen in one field and a mile down the road saw one tom strutting over 3 hens and chasing them. Their heads where as white as could be, I had a box call in the truck and gave the 2 toms a couple of yelps and they triple gobbled and starting coming to the truck. No camera but it's going in the truck tonight so I can get pics.

    • Sounds like the Preds and Pens were also hot after him so we won the bidding war, that would explain the price. We might end up facing the Preds in the first round so better we have him than them. Don't know much about Hanzel but from what I am reading he is big, good face off & pk guy and contributes a little offence. Maybe not a huge upgrade over Haula but having him on the 4th could be huge for us if him and Stewart can get something going. White looks kind of like a depth 4th liner so there is that as well. Should be a fun rest of the season, always fun to get new toys around March even if they haven't worked out in the past.

    • It's been going on for years. Just look at how many times the Howard Stern show has pranked the news with fake guests.
    • Maybe some people feel a  lbgt,, black lives matter, sierra club, feminist, white guilt, supported candidate better represents them than say an NRA endorced candidate.
    •    I think they do as good of a job as to be expected. Pills are highly regulated. International web deliveries and dirty doctors are a little tricky to weed out.      Nope, we'll use your logic and decriminalize driving under the influence.   Problem solved.   Should eradicate fatalities of those types as since it is legal, it no longer appeals to folks, they stop doing it.     Explain in detail, in a country, filled with people who love over consumption, that consume 80% of the drugs on the entire planet, how that would work.   Start stuttering.     That's about right. One word in depth answers.   On an idea that will not work in this country.   "I think we can learn that we should stop being reflexively opposed when someone else does [decriminalize] and should take seriously the possibility that anti-user enforcement isn't having much influence on our drug consumption," says Mark Kleiman, author of the forthcoming When Brute Force Fails: How to Have Less Crime and Less Punishment and director of the drug policy analysis program at UCLA. Kleiman does not consider Portugal a realistic model for the U.S., however, because of differences in size and culture between the two countries.   http://content.time.com/time/health/article/0,8599,1893946,00.html        It's your idea, you explain it and sell it.   You lazy fraud.
    • Wowza, I guess we are going for, no better year I suppose. We are now crazy deep at center and that is a good good thing, hopefully the new guys can mesh with the lineup right away.
    • So much fun to watch the media just lose all credibility, I suspect there will be more fun to come.

    • I think he means keep the prisons full and the private prison industry in money at all costs. Welcome to the wonderful world of donor $$$ "trumping" common sense. Nothing like buying laws so you can profit, not that this is anything new.
