i bought 3 of the mouth calls.
don't like em...
makes me gag....


side question:
anyone know of a good video i can watch that you yourself practice, of cleaning a turkey? do you just breast it? or do you use the whole thing? some vids i found are pretty much 50/50 they do and don't.
if you do use the whole thing i'd like to know how you cook em up? (salt water?) and thank you.

the strut stopper. i was going to get that same exact one from cabela's , but they were sold out. let me know how it is.


just got in. i was out at 4am. i heard 3 toms, and saw one. a big one. however he didn't want to come closer to me for some reason. maybe it's because i did not have a decoy? then he got spooked by a dog bark in the distance. darn derty dog. anyhow, i'll be getting a cheap decoy for now, then goin back out tomorrow. still need to check on my sight adjustment. i put lock-tite on the loose screw. and seems to be holding. i should know for sure once i fire a few rounds again.

gobble gobble.

i did last season,killed a bird at 20yards ,and another at 40 yards with mossberg full choke,it held a good group.this year im using a 22?turkey barrel with xx-full choke,the only reason im not using the 28"barrel is because i bought the turkey barrel for $50 with the choke.

I spent two days hunting this weekend with no luck. On Sunday we had some calling back to us but they wouldn't come close enough to shoot. Today we didn't even hear one call back to us.

well went out hunting this morning,in the first 15 min i had 2 jakes in my sights,i passes them up,then drove around to bunch of spots and gobbled but we only heard one more and it decided to come out in front of my friends truck parked across the field and was never seen again.usually we see flocks of atleast 12 or more every where.maybe theyre held up with the hens.
