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.

    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate. 
    • hope to have my nills by next weekend to do some testing. 6 incher. putting it with a ryobi 600 pound torque drill with 4 amp batteries. sold the clam plate and auger. friend also use it with the milwaukee drill and same hang up issue. used an 8 inch k drill on bowstring last week with the milwaukee fuel.  opened holes nice and drilled nice. 
    • Trump totally destroyed by hundreds of thousands the numbers that were in attendance for the inaugurations of LBJ and Gerald Ford. Trump again wins. Just win, win, win, win, if not pretend you did.   He may just do the same thing to the country, so don't get to excited.
    • Just drove down from the Brainerd area. Lots of snow up there but going fast. Saw 4 young guys in a ditch south of there with not much snow and one sled with hood up smoking bad. Their still learning you need snow to cool your liquid sleds!
    • What a fun election cycle, first Trump dismantles the Republican party and may take them to even lower lows by winning. Then even more surprising is the Democrats totally imploding all on their own and losing to Trump in the process. No hollywood script can compete with this kind of crazyness, just happy to be alive to witness all of this mess and hope there is much much more to come. Something tells me I won't be disappointed, I am almost excited for the next one, 4 years ago I never would have thought that in my wildest dreams.
    • If this crazy weather keeps up a guy might have to go to the mountains to have enough snow to ride.
    • I purchased a 20v 986 Dewalt brushless and used it with my Nils 8" and could not believe how fast it cut. Very close to my Tanaka motor as far as speed. My plan is to use it with my 6" Nils but wanted to give it a good test and it passed with flying colors. 
    • Pretty sure Bernie had that figured out. After the primaries I voted for "not Trump" You guys haven't picked up that liberals are still going for not Trump, even if that means Mike Pence (who from a political position standpoint is worse for liberals).   Instead you have Trump, a man incapable of taking any form of criticism regardless of how irrelevant it is to anything. Why do I post the crowd sizes? Because Trump, in a speech given only to members of the CIA, thought it was important enough to mention, as well as to have a team of his own people there to applaud when he mentioned the size of the crowds.
