    BS violation today

    I’m going to fight it simply because I won’t plead guilty to something I didn’t do. It may cost me more money. If the judge rules against me then so be it. I’ll pay the fine and go on. It has been a lesson for my son and for me as well. I have respect for law enforcement and by no means want him...

    BS violation today

    On a lighter note. My son did get his first bird this morning. Got a show too! Strutted in from 90 yards out. Made a 10 yard shot. Proud of him for his demeanor.

    BS violation today

    I didn’t hunt on the baited area. Honestly didn’t even think twice about it. Didn’t even know there was corn in it until they told us. There are probably 10 feeders on that lease right now that are empty and just sitting there. Was just an honest “wrong place wrong time” thing. I feel like they...

    BS violation today

    1,800 acres. What’s strange is there are only two of us that even turkey hunt on it. I know it wasn’t the other gentleman’s. Lots of un answered questions on my end

    I’m not sure myself because I don’t use them. Lazy man’s way. IMHO. To each their own though.

    BS violation today

    That’s basically what it says here, but I don’t see where we showed “intent”. Warden told me there’s no set distance from bait either which sounds absurd. How can I be guilty of something I didn’t even know we did. Just crazy.

    BS violation today

    Evidently the feeder was still active. Not sure if someone else was baiting. Seems likely given there was still corn in it. But we didn’t setup on it, didn’t use it as bait. Hell I didn’t even know it had corn in it until they told me. I was given no benefit of doubt. It’s not uncommon here to...

    BS violation today

    Lengthy I know...So I took my son on his first turkey hunt this morning. Arkansas youth weekend. Went to a lease that I’m a member of. We walked down an old road that I’ve used for locating birds my entire life. Someone had a deer stand and a corn feeder still up from deer seasons. We walked...

    What comfort/non essential items do you pack?

    I’ve considered this, but haven’t took the plunge. Afraid I would like it too much.

    What comfort/non essential items do you pack?

    What items will you carry for strictly comfort on a backpack hunt? I carry a Zseat, an extra air pillow and my beard comb. Sometimes the little things seem huge after a week or so in the bush. side note: did meet a guy 7 miles in last year with a 30 pack of beer... that’s dedication. I’m a pint...

    How many days to do a hunt justice?

    More is always better like stated above. I set aside 10-12 days every year, but I’ve done the 5 day thing as well. Go and do what you can. Any day in the mountains is worth it. Soak it in, slow down time and enjoy where you are.

    Which Phelps mouth call?

    Big fan of the pitch black 2&3. The Maverick is close second. The white is right up there too. I chuckle better with the Maverick though. Gives good deep tones.

    Let The Workouts Begin!!!

    Exactly my routine...hike up and down with my pack 3-4 days a week. As far as side hill goes on the tracks. I work for a RR, they won’t appreciate you being there. Just FYI

    Let The Workouts Begin!!!

    I’ve been thinking of buying an Accubow and starting back that way. Not sure how well it would work. I’m definitely learning patience for sure!

    Let The Workouts Begin!!!

    Recovering from rotator surgery... so I’ve got several goals. Started putting in the miles a few weeks ago. Cardio and strength. Hope to wear a pack soon. Pushing it in PT with a goal to be able to draw a bow by July. 🤞 Let the grind begin!!

    What's in your wallet, err, Kill Kit?

    I’ve got two of them. Both are 15016’s. One stays in my kit and the other in my deer hunting stuff. I like them personally. Fits my hand really well ( short fat fingers) and stays sharp. Great skinning knife.

    The 1 Thing You Learned- ELK

    You bet! That would be very beneficial to new guys and even some of us more seasoned guys. Most of us know what we do and don’t need, but you never know when someone has that awesome idea that works across the board for multiple items.
