It does kinda take a little of the fun out of it after the 1st one. But it would be sweet to see that many on public land every once in a while.
Just got word from hippy commune that the turks are in town again. It sure would be nice to not have to drive to Nebraska for good hunting this year.
Reading all the posts about scouting turkeys got me in the mood to check on a couple of flocks around here. So this afternoon I went to one of the farms I hunt to check out the birds. The following pics were taken via my camcorder thru my scouting scope. The turkeys were approx 1500 yds away. That is the reason they aren't as clear as the other pics posted on here. It sure is nice to do long range scouting and not spook the birds in the process.
There were 17 turkeys total. Two grown goblers, six jakes and nine hens. Looks to be a good year. Enjoy!
Hey AA,thats a rare shot there of that ermin,where do u live?the only time i have seen those critters are way back in the high country glassin big game and out of nowhere they will pop out and surprise ya.i know a guy that has a pine martin mounted gettin ready to pounce on an ermin,pretty cool lookin scenario.
I live in the roaring fork valley near aspen. Right on the border of unit 43 and 47. I've seen a few other ermins but never one that small. It was about 4 inches long, no bigger then a mouse. Havn't seen "Hermin" in a few days, but the turkeys have been there every morning.
Hinge-cutting serves several purposes in regard to improving both whitetail habitat and your hunting experience. There are two main types of hinge cuts including a cut for screening and funnels and a cut for bedding. Hinge cuts for screening and funnels should be done somewhere between the knee and waist to block a deer's vision as well as block a travel path. Hinge cuts for bedding should be done around chest high so that there is room for a deer to bed underneath.
