What does that have to do with boats?  

Well we can't hunt on sundays here; so giving up my monday-tuesday bird hunting to get the boaat out of the 1 mile underground mine.  Because of the virus hoax, I have to make an appointment and then have them find my boat and bring it out.

when I get it hooked up, will tow to lake, 150 miles.  then change oil, gear oil, and new prop.  Drive back tueday evening, hunt wed.

Boats are a lot of work.

Ours opened the 13th.
Have not been out once yet.
LONG drive to find turkeys that I can shoot, in Montana, from here.
I have a tag but I think it will be a fall thing. Sometimes where we beer hunt we find turkeys.
 I wonder what an 8mm rem mag will do to a turkey???

D,

If you shoot a turkey with your 8mm be sure to post pictures.

any pics of a turkey hit with an 8mm mag would like a tornado of feathers covered with blood.

I've shot many with the 7mmRM, all head shots. A body shot just wastes ammo and a good dinner. Don't have to worry about nibbling on BB's with a rifle.

No rifles allowed for Turkey where I live....only shotguns.

IBD, same here for spring wobbler. Fall we can snipe them....just not as cool as smearing crap all over us and hiding in a bush making funny noises.

A bird on the table doesn't care if it was put there by a boolut, shot or those nifty switch-bladed flying machete's.

This brings me back to the wife....
Hunting is the ethical way of dispatching a critter to eat right? Then they say it's unfair to use a gun. So I equal the playing field and just say I'll reach out the window and strangle the bastar** as they dig through the flower bed outside....well that's just cruel and unethical....just no pleasing folks.

Got out at 5am; opened at 5:45.  Perfect day, no moon, 39oF, clear sky.

had 24 birds fly down at 5:55.  Too many hens.  had 6 hens in decoys; talked to 5 Toms.  One tom at 55 yards.  2 toms at 100 yards.  all toms were linked to hens.  toooo many hens.

5 deer all withing 40 yards; one came in 7 yards and licked my plastic decoy!  love????

No Sunday hunting, no hunting afte noon for the first 2 weeks.   No stalking or run n gun allowed.  only calling.  Can move toward any bird you hear.  Actually I love it.  Most guys here cheat.

Tired, just ate lunch...might need a knap!

#1? Deer licking the decoy. hmmm...On WTAJ today Bear, deer in Portage found dead with Rabbies. Was it hangry?

#2? The knap? Tired or messy lunch? Maybe a nice lunch of acorn butter on corn bread while turkey hunting is in order?

Stay with it Bear. You'll get one. 

I haven't hunted Turkeys in a long time but it sure is fun. 

Good luck Bear.
