1st Hunt of the Season
« on: April 04, 2010, 02:36:34 PM »
A buddy of mine and I headed down to SE KS to an area I knew a few years ago.  We did get down there late so I showed him the field and rough area to set up in and I head a 1/2 mile west to another field to set up.  Well I call him a few hours later and he had a tom in the field with him displaying but would not commit to coming in to the decoys.

A couple hours later I venture over towards him when I see 10 or so birds in another field between him and I about 300 or so yards away.  Get to him and tell him what I saw.  Said he had the better chance of getting a setup in the field from him direction just north of them and hope they come his way.

I head back to my blind and instead of just packing up and doing what I had suggested he goes down there to have a peek himself.  He is hanging out inside the tree line when the turkeys pop out across the way from him.  He has no blind, bow or anything with him.  Oh well so much for the first day for our hunt.  It was good to know that he saw 3 other Toms in this group and they were larger than the bird he saw earlier in the day.

Was good to get back  out into the field...............................

Way to go Rookie! O0  There's something about being out in the woods in the spring that just can't be beat! O0

You'll get'em next time!!  :wink:

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.

Archery season 1 april - 13 april.  Gun starts on the 14th

From KDWP website:

"Archery hunters, anyone 16 years old or younger, and those with disability permits may hunt April 1-13. (All youth must have an adult supervisor during the youth season.) Youth and disabled hunters may use any legal equipment."

Tnutz, I appreciate the possible heads up though for we all have done something by mistake.  Good luck to you this year.

Shoot straight and dropem where they stand!

To you gutless cowards and scumbags, who are trying to lie and rewrite history. To those out to commit genocide on the Southern people with your destruction of Confederate monuments and your attacks on Southern heritage and pride. Be happy for now. Because someday when that civil war you wanted starts. I will find you. And I will kill you.
