HSO #1 ~~Heart breakers and Tom takers~~

56 posts in this topic

Welcome Guys and Gals!

PierBridge "gary" reporting In here.

I'll be Hunting in the Metro MPLS area again "339" in season A which is right around the corner and it can't come soon enough for me. It's my Favorite type of Hunting and Bird or no Bird I'll have a blast!

This will be my 4th year being involved in Turkey Hunting and my 2nd year actually Hunting them. I was fortunate enough to kill my first Long-beard last year. I'm going to try and be a little more selective this year and hopefully bag a monster Long-Beard.

We only have 2 rules as team!

#1 We all have Fun no matter the outcome!

#2 We come up with a sweet Team name!

Our Beard slaying posse consist of......

I am hunting 342B.I have hunted 6 years, and I have 1 bird, but helped others get birds in this spot the last 3 years.

The bad part I can only hunt 3 days, but the last 2 years we had on within 2 hours. I am really looking forward to getting out and hearing the gobbles.

I will think of some names to throw out later.

Good luck to us.

Jim

Hunting 227 H. A bit late but looking forward to the challenge. This will be my first time hunting for my self. I did help my son take his first bird four years ago and had the time of my life. This time I will be hunting with my brother. IT should be fun. We will have to play rock, paper, scissors to see who get to shoot first and who gets to run the camera.

Good lucky to all. sit back and injoy the time in the field. Nothing like it in my eyes.

How about (Spur collectors)?

I use Hammerhead from rocket or Tropy ridge now.I have used many mechanicals and these have been the best.I also change out the tips with the one's from the sidewinder using a chissled style tip.There are ton out there so what ever you feel good shooting.First tom was 20 yards straight on.2nd tom was 34 yards broadside took out the hips.The first bird would of come in closer but I had a perfect head on shot I could not pass up.

    • The question was in regards to doors. As for breaking glass and entering the home I will remind you that locks only keep honest people out, if someone wants to get in to your house they will. Del you always have a comment that is not relevant to the topic being discussed. Matter of fact you have a comment on everything posted. So my glass door on my house has been there for thirty years and guess what Del... no one has broken it yet!
    • He was talking about updating and upgrading our nuclear weapons,  which aren't related to the middle east.    Getting the 53 brigade combat teams up to readiness standards also will cost money.  
    • How much of that $6 trillion do you suppose is military spending?  I’d venture to guess a large amount of it.  Now while he talks about spending so much in the middle east and ignoring issues at home he apparently wants to add an additional $54 billion to the defense budget which will more than likely be funneled back into the middle eat one bomb at a time.   He might make sense in what he says from time to time but then his actions seem immediately contradict his words. Should we believe the words or the actions more?
    •  Decriminalization only makes small possession and usage kinda illegal.    Laws still have to be upheld.   Mexican cartels still would not be allowed to ship tons of cocaine over the boarder. Doctor still can't write false scripts.  Gangs still cannot run drug dens Staus quo     Just push for complete legalization. Regulate through the government. Lower the cost of product.     Cross your fingers you don't get a Russian heroine epidemic.    Freedom restored.      
    • "We spend $6 trillion in the Middle East, and we have potholes all over our highways and our roads"

      Every now and then it is hard to argue with Trump, the positives aren't many but he is not wrong about everything.
    •     Also, how do you explain the growth rate of U.S. incarcerations since Nixon began the War on Drugs in 1971?   You don't think there is big money involved in prisons?       http://fox6now.com/2017/02/25/private-prison-stocks-up-100-since-president-trumps-win/          
    • DALLAS TRADES BENN to Montreal !!!!!!   Jordie   for a 4th round pick and some no-name....Jordie was bad and playing worse lately
    •   He won't ask anyone's advice - that's a big part of the problem.  But judging by his actions and words, he fully intends to return to the criminalization/prison approach.  You know, the method that was a complete failure in the past.   Why wouldn't pharma be worried about heroin and meth?  They make versions of both, so it is direct competition.  There is also real life evidence to suggest that marijuana can be used as a replacement for opioids for pain, so that is a reason for them to be opposed to the legalization of weed, also.  Do you have a better explanation as to why Trump wants to step up enforcement of federal laws against legal purveyors of marijuana according to their state law, rather than simply changing the FDA/DEA classification?                   They would be comparable, except they have spent close to a trillion dollars on the War on Drugs since Nixon signed it into law,      
    •   Is this speculation or do you have a source for this information?    
    • Without media, you will only get what news from the party in control that they wish to give you. With no freedom of the press, no matter what they say, you will eventually lose more than the 1rst. amendment.  Let's see what happens when the President addresses Congress and if it's a rally speech or a substance speech with policy? If it's just rah-rah??, with the corrupt  media,----make up your own mind.
