Should be an interesting morning

5 posts in this topic

I started bowhunting a small piece of private property in the metro area tonight. The only time I have ever hunted here was turkeys this spring.

I saw 7 deer tonight including 2 bucks, though I couldn't tell how big. There was lots of rutting action.

I will be hunting here again in the morning, first time ever bowhunting during the gun season. That will be interesting in itself, but what really has me turned on is the turkeys! I have a turkey tag in my pocket and tonight I was in the middle of about 30 turkeys as the flew to roost. 10 - 12 were big toms! I would love to go in with my shotgun and try to bag one of those big boys, but the rut action has me sticking to my bow. Hopefully I can get a crack at one in the morning.

How cool would it be to bag a bird and a buck with my bow on opening morning of gun season?

That would be cool and really quite a feat at the same time.

Go get'em killer.

Didn't go exactly as planned. The turkeys flew into a field 1/4 mile away and the only deer seen were fawns, one still had spots! Was still fun to dream about what could have been. I still have a couple more days to make something happen.

    • Same here. And look how well twetter is working for da prez!!
    • All forums have a certain shelf life. There is only so long that the debate over Ford/ Chevy, Vex/Marcin. Eskimo/ Strike master, Ice Castle / Yeti can keep your attention. After a while most just slip away. New people are using social apps more that the old forum formats and that is that. The only thing saving silly town is that politics is the gift that keeps on giving. 
    • Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham is among GOP leaders saying Republicans and Democrats now need to work together on a fix. Over the weekend, Rep. Betty McCollum and Sen. Al Franken – both Democrats — said they agreed with Graham. “That is what we need to do,” Franken said on WCCO Sunday Morning. “Speaker Ryan said at the end of this process that the Affordable Care Act is the the law of the land. We need to address what’s wrong with the Affordable Care act, what isn’t working.” Immediately after pulling the bill, Trump said he would be willing to work with Democrats on health care.     Too big to fail.....deja vu

    •     I saw a couple of statements in the media yesterday from Dem leadership to the effect that they would be interested in working with Ryan on this.  One from our very own Al Franken.  So that tells me they most likely already are.      
    •   The 20" box fan thread was very informative, and lasted for years....
    • Possibly but it seems like the Democrats are now in the beginning stages of floating single payer. Lots of talk on that since the neocons dropped the ball
    • Kinda like the Eskimo thread on I.S. some years back?
