Nothing incredible so far but I have got a crow and a deer!

Yesterday I went out to do some crow hunting and got a very pleasant surprise not involving crows. It was late yesterday evening, sometime after four and I started in on my crow call. What happened next made me check the time of day, a gobbler and several hens started going off! They were paying so much attention to my crow calls that I had to listen to myself and make sure I hadn’t grabbed a turkey call. I did have a few crows call back to me and two flew to a tree about 100 yards away but none would come close enough to think about shooting them. I did have a big smile on my face from listening to the turkeys though. I was already getting excited about the upcoming turkey season but now I’m up another notch from that. Are any of you hearing any gobbling yet or seeing any strutting? Good luck in all your pursuits!

Another year has arrived! I never did get any more deer on the ground but I had a blast deer hunting last season. Time to turn my attention to small game and predators now. How did your seasons go? Good luck in the new year!

I've been really busy since my last post. I have managed to put two deer on the ground though! I didn't get any good pictures of either but there is still a lot of season left! I love this time of year and if you're reading this you probably do too! Hope you all have had a great season and that it only gets better!

I get lots of technical questions emailed to me. I have to be honest I'm not the most technical minded guy in the world but I'll help you if I can! I will give anyone this tip though if you don't already know it... there is a wealth of knowledge to be had at www.archerytalk.com. Search the forums for almost anything archery related and you will probably have pages of responses! Sure there are some nuts on there but it's definitely worth checking out if you're not already a regular reader! Happy hunting!

I get a lot of emails regarding my review of my PSE Bow Madness MC. People want to know if I still like it after all this time. If it still shoots well and is still quiet. The answers are all yes! This bow should be renamed… Bow Sweetness because it is as sweet as honey!
I’m getting revved up to start doing a little predator hunting and some varmint hunting. Got to stay in shape physically and mentally for deer season! I hope all is well in your lives!

Yup, misleading title for me... I've yet to be sure I've heard a gobble at this point this year. Dad and I have heard a few distant rumblings that we believe were gobbles but nothing that I would bet my life on. I've hunted as hard as I can so far this year and no luck at all. As frustrating as it can be at times it's also what I love about hunting. If it were easy it would be called killing lol. I love the challenge of these old gobblers but I wouldn't mind a break soon either! I put in some serious and hard miles on my boots Saturday and didn't hear or see anything but a couple of hens headed to roost. I'm going to keep hard at it though and eventually my luck will change! After all, luck is hard work and persistence meeting opportunity for the most part!

Spring Turkey season has been open for over a week now in Virginia and Dad and I have found time to go hunting three times now. We haven’t had much luck, we haven’t even heard one gobble anywhere near us but we did see one hen Saturday. We’ve not had very good weather once while we’ve been hunting either. With all of those negative things out of the way I can say we’ve had a good time though! We’ve been in places where we know there are turkeys at but it just hasn’t been the right time. We are going to persevere though and eventually we’ll catch the break we need and we’ll get a turkey or two down!
How are your seasons going? I hope well! Hunt hard and don’t give up!

Spring turkey season is almost upon us! Are you ready? I think I am... went through my gear last night and I'm doing all of the scouting I can. I can't wait until I get in the woods Saturday morning. Good luck and God bless!

There has been no small game hunting for me. All I seem to do is shovel snow. Oh well, life is good! I'm just trying to enjoy the white beauty that's outside! I should have some show announcements up soon!

My last minute attempts at bagging a deer this year did not work out. I became ill this weekend and didn’t have the strength to hunt very hard. I did enjoy my time in the woods though, except for the extreme cold! It was beautiful in the mountains with all of the snow and it made getting a read on where the deer were moving easier as well but I couldn’t close the deal.
Now that deer season is probably over, unless I do some late season doe hunting further North, my focus will now move toward small game hunting, post-season scouting, indoor archery, and eventually turkey season! There is always something to look forward to! Stay warm!
PS – I forgot to mention that show season is coming up for the Mossy Oak ProStaff. There are some great shows coming up and I’ll have more on them soon!
