The weather and turkeys didn't act right this weekend for us. Still had a good time. Found some good sheds. Had crawfish and fried crappie Saturday afternoon. Banana pudding for dessert! 😊

Pretty good weekend for the lease. 4 gobblers, 5 coons, 4 racks of ribs and some good libations killed.....and and some post deer season sleep patterns..







And mine

Great looking birds! Y'all did a really good job on the picture's!

Does Anyone have any tips or suggestions? Not really wanting to set up on a feeder. We're in the water valley area.
Turkey in heat scent sprayed on the decoys usually works well.

I usually put a little under my armpits and on my mustache/goatee to really scent the area. Pulls them right in.

Had a great time at the new lease this weekend! picked out a spot where I will be putting up stand and feeders this coming weekend. Was able to knock down 2 Toms as well! All in all was a great trip until the rain storm brought a leak in my RV's roof to my attention while trying to sleep!

need to buy a gravity tube to feed protein out of. Everywhere I have looked only has the whole feeder with the built in gravity tubes. I just need one to bolt to the bottom of my 55 gallon barrel. Anyone got in helpful info? Thanks in advance !

Yes, I do have one. I've never used it so, it's yours if you want it.

I'll text you a pic of it.

Cut the vertical runs right under the top horizontal run with bolt cutters, will make them super sharp. Next time he rolls over that panel may be his last. That panel is already ruined anyway.

Already added some more and replaced the panel. We have a bunch of pens built like this one and they are all fine over 5 years now. It's just one boar big enough to get over. These have two squares overlap between panel with tpost in the middle.

Most deer don't role over a 34" panel tho.

Was a little tongue and cheek

Had a great long weekend so far chasing archery Toms with TBHer ClayW and his Dad, PoPo. They both got great birds. Good times.
