Seems our fearless leader has devised a method of removing the snow from the roof of the Hog Barn. It’s called the ‘Leap and Slide’.

Given the success or lack of experienced this year…I’ve requisitioned one of these deck mounted babies for the Gator. Adding a little speed to our drives might change the outcome.

OK slackers. In years past you’ve probably walked past more deer than you’ve seen.

This year will be different, right?

Direct from the Commander’s key pad:

Success—-bagged a tom on Saturday afternoon around 4:00. 22 pounds. Had a 7 to 8 inch beard.

I got out into the field around 2:00 and set up at the west end of the Mega Stand field. I could hear some birds but nothing came close to me. Not even a good nap did the trick.

I had parked the Gator in the old house woods and so I headed back there about 3:45 thinking I would set up near the entrance to Twin Oaks Trail. As I was walking on the lane I glassed 3 turkeys in the field west of the woods, a hen about 75 yards away, and a tom and a hen about 300 yards away. The tom was in full strut when I first saw him. I moved behind some trees just to the south side of the 2 man stand. The hen closest to me got spooky and headed into the woods south of the field. The second hen, for whatever reason went north, with the tom following for a short distance, and then he stopped .

I started calling and he turned towards me and kept on coming. He got very spooky about 50 yards out. He was standing directly in front of my trees so I could not get a shot at him. But the he stepped out and that was it. Very neat hunt.

282-600x450OK, gang…while most of the stuff we put up is pretty worthless – this post is different. It’s only slightly worthless.

The Commander sent this to me so I’m compelled to post it.

How these guys came up with 31 tricks is beyond me. Seems like 25, or maybe 30, would have been a more logical number.

Some are a little goofy. I’d rather use a couple George Washingtons to start a fire than using Doritos as tinder (#10). #9 suggests that when winter camping put the next day’s clothes in your sleeping bag with you to keep them warm…but what about how they’ll smell?

And the next time the Commander suggest grilling brats on a rake…well, now you know where he comes up with this stuff.

I personally think #31 should have been in place of #30.
