well I didn't know were to post this but as I was sitting in school towards the end of first hour over the pus speaker we hear "building go into immediate lockdown mode" and come to find out there was some sort of prison escapee that was in the area and we had to sit and be quiet for over 30min and we might have to go into another one.

I'll keep to guys posted about the news that the school admin will be telling us.

Wow. Whenever I drive past that place it just amazes me that those guys still find ways to escape. I suppose most of them have plenty of time to think that over...let us know how it goes Jordyn.

yes sir.

I guess there was a guy walking in the

Baseball fields with a black ski

Mask on with something that looked a weapon in his hand I guess.

I don't know if it was a weapon or not. That's all the teachers told us..

makes a person wonder about our nations prison system.

A couple years ago I was in Colorado and there are signs warning drivers not to pick up hitch-hikers due to the number of prisons out there.

I'm all safe and sound.

There was just a guy walking in the baseball fields with a black ski mask that had something that looked like a weapon.

A community service guy saw it and called it in. I don't know I'd they found him or anythin but we are out of out the lockdown and he is not close to us anymore.

Thanks for asking if I'm ok and everything.

That's why I love this site!! People are always caring about our fellow HSO'ers and FM'ers!!

Thanks guys

They found the guy. Star trib is reporting it was a guy carrying coffee and someone called it in thinking it was something else.

This is what I dont get, ITS COLD OUT. Should I not wear a ski mask when it's cold out now for fear of getting arrested? Maybe instaed of jumping the gun right away they should have gotten off their lazy [PoorWordUsage] and went and asked the guy what he was doing. I'm not from the stillwaer area, obviously, but, I ask you jordyn, how far from the school are your fields? and approximately how far out was the guy. I ask this becuase there should be no reason for this if the guy was walking parallel to the school or within a certain distance, say 100ft or better.

Well the guy I guess walked through our parking lot. He was spotted going across our ball field which is maybe 100yards away.

The cops iniated the lock down so ya.

I think my teachers said something about the guy had a warrent out for being a se.x offender.

Well that's all I know..

Ha

well, being a sex offender is one thing, but you know how rumors get spread and blow up out of proportion. Glad everything is ok, just saying.

    • Good luck.  Hope your efforts pay off.
    • I'll be getting out again on Tuesday with the bow. It has been very hard finding time to get out this year, between work and a 4 month old at home. Last time out I spent 12 hours in the blind and saw quite a few birds during the middle of the day. Had multiple times where I thought it was going to happen but the Toms wouldn't commit 100%. Making a small adjustment this go round and hoping things come together.
    • Was thinking for hunting and maybe put a plow on it to use at my place up north. Wouldn't be my main driver. Was thinking around 15K for budget but that was before I did much looking mostly on line so far. But might step up in price for the right rig. And a lot of that would depend if I liked the newer V6 engine and 5 speed auto or 6 speed trany and less miles etc. Just by looking at dealer prices on line I would think a guy could find a pretty nice late model for around 20 or less. I think if I bought a nicer later model I would drive it more as they look like they have made the interior a lot nicer and more comfortable than the older ones. On the other hand if I ran across a real clean older one with the in line 6 and not to many miles for the right price that would be an option to. The drawback to a newer shiny one it might take a while before I ran it down the brushy trail.

    • Our MN hunt this year was just about as easy as they come.  Sutty and I arrived at different times, he was late, and set up on opposite sides of the field as planned.  I could hear the birds gobbling in the valley below in their usual spot, and they sat there a long time in the cold.  Sutty couldn't see because he was on the back side of a finger of trees because he didn't want to spook anything out since he was late...  Eventually they got down and proceeded to sit on the far hill for a while longer.  I could see a 6 or so males, but suspected most were jakes, and a few hens.     Just when I was getting tired of waiting, about 8:30am, I saw one gobbler enter the field and walk straight towards Sutty's position.  As the bird got in front of Sutty, another nice gobbler came into the field.  I called to him but he wanted nothing to do with me.  Sutty shot the first bird, and the second one didn't know what happened.  Of course Sutty came running out of his blind and scared off the second bird that he didn't even know was there.      Sutty just bought a new house and had to head home asap to help his wife with packing things, and his daughter didn't seem too interested in shooting her own bird this year.  Now that she saw how ridiculously easy it is she probably won't be interested next time either.      I figured I should get to the edge of the field the birds were coming out on, and as I started moving my blind I bumped some hens that hadn't yet come up all the way out of the valley.   I finished getting my blind in place and sat a while, but it seemed we had scared the remaining birds out of the area, or maybe they were just laying low out of the wind.  In any case I went to get some lunch and let things settle down for a while.     After a couple hours of eating and casting for fish that weren't there, I decided I would head back up to sit in my blind.  Just as I reached the top of the hill to see into the field I saw three big gobblers walking across the field.  I ducked down and ran around the edge of the field out of their view to get closer.     I crawled up to about 10yd from the field edge, as far as I could go without being seen, and started calling.  They liked what they heard, but wouldn't commit right away.  After maybe 10 minutes of me cutting and purring, and all three of them strutting and gobbling out at 60-70 yards they started coming.  I couldn't see them well through the brush I was behind, and they didn't want to walk through it.  If I was at the edge of the field I could have shot them, they were within 40yd.  They proceeded to do a big arc along the field edge back to where I had just walked.     After a couple minutes of not seeing them I picked up my call, they gobbled, and then I saw them marching in where I had just walked.  When I last saw them going this direction I had shifted to face that way, I was now facing the tree I just had my back against, which put my butt in a thorn patch and the barrel to one side of the tree.  The birds started walking to the other side, so as they got behind the tree I eased the barrel to the side they were going to come out on.  They started coming up the other side back to the field they were just in and were too close together for a shot.  Finally one eased out in front and I let him have it.  He tipped backwards and rolled back downhill, and didn't even kick until I went over to grab him.  27 yards with the range finder after the fact.       Both birds turned out to be very nice old birds with long spurs.     Sutty's weighted 22lb 4oz, 10" beard, 1 3/16" spurs.  I believe this is his best turkey to date.     My bird weighted 25lb 8oz, 10" beard, 1 1/8" spurs.  My best turkey by weight and age.     Sutty and his bird.        Me and my bird.  I shot from one of the trees above this rock I think.      
    • Got it done in mn.  More to come when I get home.
    • Go to a license agent and buy one for your desired season. Season C, is on process thru May 2nd. Season D, is May 3rd thru May 9th. Season E, is May 10th thru May 16th. Season F, is May 17th thru May 31st. Season F also allows anyone with an unused tag from earlier season to hunt this period as well.   Hope this help PF.  
    • How do the over the counter licenses work this year? I missed last season but would like to get out this year even though I didn't apply for the lottery.
    • What exactly will you be using it for? Driving around the country with the top down, hunting the back woods, fording small creeks?   Do you have a particular budget to stick to?
    • at times the prop will stop on mine, usually when I move it to turn, need to tear into it sometime, I have use fishelectronics for misc. parts
