Check Out My new Bully Partner

15 posts in this topic

I was down stocking up on some more bullies last week and turned my head and found someone catchin bullies with me. I got a snap shot on my cell phone and went back to fishing. Looked over and he was gone. I caught a bully and went to put in my bucket and found he was messing with my crawler tub. Sure enough I scooted him away and went back to bully fishing.

The bullies where not jumping in the bucket, so I moved to another spot a couple hundred yards away. I was pulling in a bully when I caught something out of the corner of my eye. Sure enough I saw the little bugger right at my heals grin He must have followed me over lookiing for more bullies.

I was sitting on the lakeshore at night, catching me some bullies for later, and heard some rustling in the bushes about ten yards away. I shone my flashlight in that direction, and saw 8 pairs of beady little eyes looking at me and my bait, slowly creeping over to me.

I moved to a different spot. One raccoon, maybe two raccoons, I can deal with. Eight... that's a little different story.

Raccoons are cute...until they gnaw off your fingers.

I am still waiting to see a pretty possum up close and personal. I have seen plenty flattened like a pancake and one or two crossing the road way in front of me.

    •     thanks pikestabber!!!  that will work!!!!
    • One of the young fellas in the extended family thinks he needs to buy a Bushmaster 5.5 rifle for general use and because he is now living in what he calls a "nervous tension" part of the Twin Cities.  Franky, it is all "nervous tension" to me but never mind,  what do those of you who actually own and shoot Bushmaster rifles,   about which I know nothing, think of them for quality, price and dependability. Personally, I'd rather have a Beretta 92FS or a nice little Ruger LC9mm and a REAL rifle is a bolt action, blued metal work of art with a birds-eye maple or burled walnut stock!
    • Cool pics, good job.
    • Wisconsin was a bust.   There were plenty of birds around, but they clearly are well educated when it comes to hunters.  Most hens were going to nests early, but nothing would respond to or come to calls of any kind.  I watched many birds that I would call to in a field turn and walk away, even jakes and gobblers with no hens.  Some birds would sprint out of sight!    I did come very close to a nice gobbler but forgot my range finder in my blind and didn't shoot when I thought he was a bit too far.  Ranging the area later proved otherwise...  I also had another group with a nice gobbler and a few hens that I had been chasing multiple times, they started going away from my calling, so I crawled up behind some thick pine trees to get close for an ambush shot.  Of course a hen busted me at 15yd and they disappeared...     After two solid days of rain, and this morning's rain with zero birds heard or seen I packed up and went home.  My brother called to tell me he shot a bird in the spot he told me I should go to...    All in all I only heard two gobblers actually gobble in three hard days of hunting, neither would come to me.  Many more seen.  I only heard one hen yelp back to me, again saw many others that would not make a peep...
    • So as far as anyway knows there should be no adverse effects except for extra work in the fall.
    • At my age Eyeguy I'm just trying not to lose too many.
    •   Sorry. Cell service down there was horrible. Had to wait till I got back to a real computer.
    • Kept me waiting long enough  congratulations Don
    • another good trick for good maters is once the tomatoes start forming is to put a tablespoon of epsom salt by the stalk about every 3rd-4th watering!!!!!!!! i'm a believer!!!!!!!
