Post your 2020 harvest here.
#3 son and his youth season opener jake!
Spreading manure and this little fella ran across the pasture field... sp101 made quick work of him
This time of year, I carry a .38 with snake loads.
#1 son with his 1st tom of 2020.
11¾" beard 1¼" spurs.
No bloodshed necessary....
One of my favorite hunting seasons of all.
Grab your woods gun.
IT'S MOREL SEASON!
I'm jealous! There's just no turkeys where I normally deer hunt here in the panhandle; and I was supposed to get a hunt for Osceolas down south with state forestry, but this stupid covid apocalypse messed that up. Oh, well- there's always next year!
My first Spring Turkey. I have taken several hens during fall seasons but have never had any luck in the spring. Brother did a nice job calling this one in for me. Taken at touch over 40 yards with 2.25 oz of #4 from my old Browning BPS. 1-1/8 spurs and a 8.5-inch beard. Great weekend hunting.
Man I cant believe some of your states open turkey so early. Ohio starts in about 2 more weeks. I haven't been in probably 10yrs and thought about going this year but its not worth the 1.5hr drive one way. They closed the camp ground and we can only hunt until noon.
I will say I am excited for woodchuck season. We start shooting them around Memorial day.
I know it's getting late in the season but you won't need a quota permit to hunt Osceolas in Richloam WMA and there are quite a few there.
Unlike Eastern strain turkeys Osceolas will cross ditches and water to come to your call. The hens are on nests here mostly so the gobblers are searching for some that haven't been bred.
I think Osceolas are easier to hunt than Easterns but not as easy as Rios.
makes 10 for the year
What did you use on him? Looks similar to the one I hit at 250yards with a Nosler Varmededdon BT.
220 swift with 55 grain Sierra blitzking. It was a little over 200
@Armored farmer those mushrooms look awesome
It’s horn hunting season here. I’m a lousy horn hunter. After many many many miles on foot over a two year period I finally had a good weekend. I think bringing my kids is lucky
Two days hiking with my girls, youngest found her first elk shed!
Oldest found her second ever elk shed!
And I found a very nice 6x8 set:
I’ll be playing guide in this unit this year for my NY buddy, I hope this bull survives the rut and we can find him in November! Mass shot of one side:
Saw a lot of elk, they are very not-spooked this time of year. Notice background:
Heck of a nice deer. When and how did you get him? ... Story, please.
This almost should belong on the knife forum...but it is hunting
If morels are fattening, you're going to have to change your nickname to "Tubby."
13 point red stag I shot in Portugal in February. Merkel 8x57jrs
A 50kg boar from a couple of weeks ago. Nice eating size.
Fallow buck from my Portugal trip.
Last week of the season here in WI. Been quiet, no gobbling, no yelps or clucks. Called in a few hens but no Tom sightings. Just really quiet. Didn't hunt this morning because my wife and I were running to my sister's property to dig up a bunch of sumac and red dogwoods to plant on our property for deer forage and a bit of year round color. Soooooo.... sipping coffee getting ready to head out at 6 am, see this through the front window lol!
Followed by a hen...then these two....
None of them made a sound. Looks like I'm hunting again tomorrow!!! Seems more like deer hunting compared to earlier weeks of the season. Gonna sit down where I think they may move through and make myself invisible.
Be well folks
