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.
As the allure of hunting big whitetails becomes more and more a passion for many, we are finding that the recent (historically speaking) popularity of hunting deer from a tree stand is becoming the way to do it. I'll make no statement either for or against that technique here. This will be simply an essay on what I feel are some outstanding rifles for tree stand use.
Before we go even one more step, let's all remember that safety is first and foremost for anyone wanting to hunt...
