    Southern IN.............freakin' horrible.
    One of our guys got Lyme disease.

    I use Deep Woods off on skin and Sawyers permethrin on clothes (sprayed and dried in advance per directions).
    Permethrin is nasty (cancer warnings). IMHO ticks are worse.

    Would not hunt southern IN without it.
    Already getting bad. Lone Star and immature dog ticks are out. Didn't really think about it but last weekend I was shooting in the back yard and by the time I was done had better than a half dozen crawling on my socks and legs with a couple already starting to bite in.

    Hey MR. Know it All, I was joking about the Toms sleeping off their lovin' - my sarcasm for them not showing up for my hunts. Geeze.

    yep MR know-it?

    My first american wild turkey was harvested in Texas County, Missouri on public Mark Twain Nat'l forest on a Monday of their second week Spring season.


    Second Tom was harvested in Jackson Co. Indiana on public land Hoosier National Forest on opening day, Wednesday.

    My third Tom was harvested on Saturday of that week in Summers Co. , West Virginia on public land, Bluestone lake.

    All were called by me.

    NONE were taken at first light

    If you can bowhunt deer with a longbow........
    you MAY be able to harvest an american wild turkey.

    good hunting in 2020
    probably much less "competition" from other hunters......
    same competition from hens, though

    BTW, longbows suck.
    And opening day is the easiest time to whack a bird IMHO.

    longbows & recurves really separate the men from the boy bowhunters.......

    btw, each of my turkey hunts described above were failures based upon harvesting a Tom at fly down because none where shot before 11am as I recall.

    and if you harvest a bird at first fly down on the first day of the season in most states you are done for season or year if only Spring season, except if you hunt out-of-state.
    most hunters don't have the skills or sounds like the patience it takes.........

    and you whack a bird sounds like you are really skilled at something?
    just not sure that's how I explains or describes what hunting any type of game, is about...
    YMMV, of course

    Nice bird, hope he's still around and interested in two weeks.

    On the drive 40 yds from the dining room window. Looks like the breeding is about over here.. Hens are already on the nests.

    Parkerizing lollipops since 1973.
