Hunt In: The World
Default 2 firsts for me

I have killed a train car load of Turkeys with my recurve but have never killed one with a compound or a shotgun
Better lucky than good.
I went to my buddyís place in Brownwood to hunt Turkey.
Wind was blowing 25 miles and I could not hear anything.
We decided to hunt hogs the first afternoon and I had a Tom walk down the road past me, one turkey down with my bow.
The next morning it was drizzling rain with a 20 mile north wind,
We decided to set in one of Deans rifle stands to get so relief from the weather.
We worked the call but couldnít hear anything with the wind.
Just before we were going to give up we had another Tom come in all furred up and I busted him with the 10 guage.
Despite the weather it ended up being another great weekend at T-4

PS ... l saw a bunch of great Axis if anybody is looking for one.

I'll post some Axis pictures when I get back to Brownwood. Every time Buff comes down it gets cold, but he is the man when it comes to whacking critters, hot or cold, bow or firearm, doesn't matter to him. Thanks again for coming Marty. I always have a blast when you are here.

I'm just happy to see an actual hunting thread in amongst the car/truck decisions, the toenail painting, legal advice, etc. Makes me want to buy a crossbow !
