Turkey's! You want Turkey's! These were outside my door yesterday. Their gobbling woke me up. By the time I gotten the camera, they moved out to the street. Weren't phased by me getting near them.

My families farm has turkeys that come in the yard from time to time. They're really not hard to hunt back there mainly because they are easy to pattern and locate plus there are lots of them. We can get two tags in the spring and 4 tags in the fall which is another indicator of how many there are.
Pop up a blind in the right spot and do a little calling with a decoy placed about 10 yards from the blind, makes for an easy bow shot when they come. Good eatin too.

Wow, the only turkeys I have seen here in South Carolina, were a couple of groups by the side of the road. I have been told that those who can hunt turkeys here are considered the elite, as anyone can hunt a deer.

What do you do with the coyotes after you kill them?

When I was a track-a-holic on my R1 & R6, I used to think that the FJR was an old man's bike. Then I got one and absolutely love it. Hey...wait a minute!

I sell them to a fur buyer. I only hunt them during winter months when their pelts have value.

SO, who else enjoys the hunt? What do you hunt?


I like varmint hunting/shooting.
Groundhogs here at home, but I really like prairie dog shooting... No such thing as a prairie dog in my part of the world so... I pack up he truck and drive 2000+km to Colorado to shoot. 'No time to drive around looking for land to hunt on and secure land owner permission so we end up paying an outfitter to take us out... It's spendy, but still a good time. Being in the US we can use our AR's to hunt with so that's a thing... Here at home AR's aren't legal to shoot anywhere other than a range/gun club

Last summer in Colorado...

Ah yes prairie dogs. I don't call that "hunting", that's more ammo. wasting. I do my share of that too through the summer.
Here's what I'll be doing in about 10 days, with bow in hand. Lookin for thunder chickens.

Yeah... Last summer between my .243, .223 bolt guns, .17HMR bolt gun and the .223 AR I expended about 800 rounds over two days. Longest confirmed kill was 440 yards.
