Default Somebody kill somethin'.............

or at least start somethin'.

It's gettin' down right boring around this here fire. I need to read about bloody arrows, dead pigs, turkeys, armadillos, trash fish, or whatever else you can talk about without without worrying about Mr. Greenjeans. Heck, I wanna read about your hunts even if you didn't see nuthin. If you haven't been huntin' then just start somethin', pick on somebody, make fun of me, or whatever, I just need something to make me wanna check out what's going on in here.

Smile 1st Turkey with Trad Bow

Saturday I got my first turkey with a trad bow! My buddy called him in and he got within 10 yards and I shot him in the spine. I used a Simmons Treeshark, A.D. hammerhead shafts, Rodned Wright Stalker recurve bow and a Rancho Safari longcoat. Hope it won't be my last! Good luck to the rest of you! BCB

I have been trying. Called a big ol Tom in last Saturday. I hit the box call and just happened to look over my right shoulder and saw him coming. I bet he covered 40+ yard in about 5 seconds. That joker came running through the woods and then he came to a stop about 8-10 feet right behind me. He just stood there staring at me. That lasted about 10 seconds, and he decided I wasn't a turkey and he took off. . I am going to try and see if I can get back on him next Saturday afternoon if I get back from Rock Eagle early enough. 4H has it's outdoor shoot next week. Good luck to everyone!

What stories do you want to hear Al. The one where I stared down a boar hog and he runs off a 100 yards away only to get shot at by another hunter with a gun. Maybe the string tracker story where I didn't loose my arrow that went under a pig. Or Sprayed my eyes full of DEET. Or Shoot a boar hog somewhere near or above , or through his tally wacker because he lunge forward at the shot. But I ain't got time right now to tell ya. Oh, on turkeys, ain't heard one gobble in a month. Good news is the pigs are back and the bad news is the turkeys left because of the pigs. mikE

I do have a 12 year boy playing baseball so time in the woods is limited.

Here's my story Al...

went to check a spot just before dark grabbed my apex bow and two arrows listening mainly for turkeys and seen a dillo. Missed him w first shot, stuck him w second and as I went for missed arrow I see three pigs at 40 yds. Stalk into maybe 18 and shoot high made one squel...He ran over to others and all three just stood there inside 20 for mins and me w no arrows. I had shot high just nicked skin I guess no hair or blood on arrow....Had to follow the dillo back to a hole and he pulled arrow out at entrance

This is the Jake I shot Saturday morning with my Rodney Wright Stalker Recurve. Jake had two small beards, was taken from natural cover while wearing my ghillie suit. Stalker Recurve is 46 AMO, 40 inches strung and 50 lbs. @28. Three Jakes were called in by my good buddy Perry Mathews, a real expert at turkey calling. I shot the first one in the clear. Thank yall for the kind words! Good luck to all! BCB
