Hopefully I will get out a little this weekend. My season started yesterday.

Of course I am going on a bear hunt the beginning of next month and feel myself running out of time so I may focus on getting ready for that instead.


Good luck

When I was a child my father usually takes me to hunt red partridge, we have not salvage turkeys her. Actually I don´t hunt, but my mind, and my heart, are plenty of images, sounds and aromatics plants scent. (I would like to know whats the meaning of the sentences I wrote in english Undecided )

I changed the shotgun for the camera many time ago. Really I enjoy the rabbits running, ducks flying like mirages, red partridge singing like in the video, snakes, eagles...The shotgun disturbs the enchantment.

I have always loved to hunt, Kentucky is slowly pricing it out of reach.....I haven't bought a license yet this year, but we will see when fall comes around if I can keep from going out and buying one.

Funny how hunting used to be how poor people ate.  Now poor people can't afford it.

Last day of season today.  Hunted 23 of 31 days.  Closing in on Gobbler # 100. (Adult Toms)  Been a incredible lifetime of Turkey hunting.  Adirondack Mountains of NY state is quickly becoming an unknown "hot spot".

that is the reason I bought a lifetime license about 5 years back the states are taxing us to death so that the nonhunters can enjoy the outdoors go figure

   Yeah Michael it is amazing.  That's how we got through the year when I was a kid.  Now with the prices jacking up again I may have to use it that way again.  Fortunately I have what I need and reload my own, which has also skyrocketed in cost.  The only hunting I've been able to do this past year is swarms and whats on VS or the OUTDR channels.

Everyone said it couldn't be done. But he with a chuckle replied, "I won't be one to say it is so, until I give it a try."  So he buckled right in with a trace of a grin.  If he had a worry he hid it and he started to sing as he tackled that thing that couldn't be done, and he did it.  (unknown)

Very nice bird!!! Never killed one myself, I have a few friends that take 'em regularly and say hunting them is a lot of fun. They are such noisy birds huh?

They can be... or sometimes they wont make a sound and will be on top of you before you know it...

It is the most challenging thing I have ever done. It is as addictive as beekeeping!!!

Here's a pic of my wife and I while hunting in Hawaii last year. Thought I'd share it because it's such a cool pic. This year she killed a nice Georgia bird and I brought home a big New Mexico merriam's.
