Morning, especially at first light when the gobblers start to hammer away up on the roost. Gets the blood a pumping good! The woods start to wake up with all the other types of birds start to chime in.If you get a good calm morning with no wind,it's awesome! But with that being said, I've killed more birds between 9:00 and noon then right around fly down time.

Gotta be morning. Hearing those gobblers at first light is amazing. Plus, every bird I have killed was before 9:30.

Just can't beat being there when first light comes, watching the world come to life. The turkey gobbles of the spring woods are an added plus. Can't beat it!

That being said, like paintbrush, I've shot more birds later in the day...guess it's all good.

First light for me too.

The thrill of having Pepe LePue walk within a couple feet or the racoons fighting, rooster pheasants drumming at first light, and of course the main reason we're out there and everything the turkeys do first thing in the morning.

I've been known to be out an hour or better before legal shooting hours. The woods can go from dead silence to a gradual "coming to life" party.

You gotta love it.

My favorite time is morning I like to bring first timers out take them to my secret spot fill them with doubt about how lucky we would be to even here a gobble sneek into the blind a hour and half before shooting time still filling them with doubt knowing whats going to happen then when the first animals first start moving give a few soft yelps and the blind start shaking from multiple toms rolling gobbles like thunder within 100 yard to see the look on their faces still makes me giggle. Cant wait drawn for the first week its gonna be good

    • You'd think they'd give Stalock a look.  His overall NHL stats are OK and not that bad down in IA either....Kemps has to have a "great" night and have everything in front of him going our way to be good...he's not going to steal games for us like Dubs can IMO...give Stalock a shot in the nets!
    • 1 I'm on board, but not sure how you go about doing that. 2 laughably impossible 3 Sure, but it's not going to make a whole lot of a difference. 4 OK, I assume it would need to be replaced with something else though. 5 is open to a lot of interpretation as to what "make no sense"   None of that really puts the power back to the people though.   Do you still envision a representational government with elected leaders?    
    • The fumbling thing and also the blocking and catching the ball where all things that I thought he should have been able to improve on.  To me the failure to improve in those areas seems to indicate he might lack the right stuff upstairs.  With his physical gifts doing something like blocking shouldn't be that hard.  Its not rocket science, you just need to know your assignment and mostly just be in the right position.  Its almost like he couldn't focus on more than one thing at a time.  If he got the ball he could focus on running but not securing the ball, if he didn't get the ball it seems like he couldn't handle the concept of picking up a rusher if need be and then getting out into his route, maybe it was just too much for him to process at game speed.   Like I said he's probably the best runner most of us have ever seen but the rest of his game was so flawed.

    • And trust me, these things will be much easier to accomplish than some progressive or conservative utopia. That is the real pipe dream.

    • Here are few steps, I'm sure you and Del will team up and say they are impossible.

      1. Remove the two parties from power.
      2. Keep money out of politics.
      3. Dump the electoral college.
      4. Dump our tax system - not worth our time.
      5. Dump old laws that make no sense.

      It might even be fun to elect a government who doesn't need to spy on everyone or bail out billionaires but you get it.
       

    • Bahhh ha ha ha ok there champ. More like you see someone else post up a clever meme and a few days later you claim it as you own, often failing to comprehend its meaning in the first place. Of course you do ok with a few of the easy ones.
    •   I prefer a unicorn utopia, but what can you do?   I take it you got nuthin on how you go about "returning the power to the people"
    • Look at it this way, every time a liberal posts something bad about Trump or the Republicans we are proven right. And every time a conservatives posts bad about Obama or the Democrats we are proven right. Is it really our fault that the entire political system is a hot mess? We are just here to point out the ever growing hypocrisy. I haven't seen anyone say they have all the answers, no one does but no amount of polishing those two turds is going to win anyone over.
