  1. Wow! I can't believe how things are working out this season for me! First I get a great opening day gobbler, now this week I had several great days afield and also managed to get another nice gobbler down today on the last day of B-week! Earlier this week I spent a couple mornings at a new place that I scouted a few months ago. I saw a bunch of turkeys, but they were mostly hens (the exception was Heckle and Jekyll, the 2 small jakes who were so young they didn't seem to know how to strut or gobble!). It's fun watching the hens interact with each other, but after a while you just want to

  2. Headed out with Mike and Brandon to look for some stripers after work tonight . figured with forecasted hard west their would be bait along the beach NADA . so hit some lumps and they each got to fight a cow . Brandons fish was 39 # , Mike’s was 43. both swam for a few minutes for a nice healthy release . headed back in earlier than expected when winds went hard south stacking up the seas quick . comfortable ride home and cleaned up early . .

    Took a respectable bird...

    Called this guy on state land yesterday...drew back when went behind a tree he walked right up to the jake decoy and stood behind a couple of weeds...I was stuck at full draw for what felt like 2 minutes but was probably 15 seconds.... then he stepped up on a mound of dirt to give the jake the stink eye.. 13 yard shot 45 yard recovery 21# 9” beard just over 1” Spurs

    B week bird down (5/6)

    Pretty crazy hunt to say the least. Long story if you care to read, if not photo attached below. Hunted this bird on Z9 public land the last day of A week and Mon. - Thurs. of B week all before work sits. This spot had multiple gobblers, but they would never gobble at the same time making it very hard to judge how many there actually were. There was a boss bird who would gobble the most and everyday would fly down with his hen and she would take him away. He would get fired up to calling, but would never leave the hen and she never would respond to my call. They never went the same

    Snake Attack

    Well maybe not a attack on me, more like attack on them. Was time to till the garden last time before I put plants in the ground. Just started and one come from the side and almost got him. Picked him up and brought him inside to show the wife. Cool to see one as it's been a while since I have seen any. Took him over away from the garden and released under my wood pile. Go back to the garden and till again. Well another one come out of the ground on the other side. Glad I didn't hit any while tilling.

    my new fishing kayak

    bought a new hobie last week and each night before bed i have been rigging it up for fishing. installed a lowrance, rod holder, mesh pockets, a square hatch and moved the round hatch to the front. it was an uneasy feeling taking a jig saw to a new kayak but everything went well. plan on taking it out tomorrow morning but if its pouring out then ill get out early sunday morning. i bought the horizontal hatch by accident but will still work.

  10. SWM ISO good times in the great outdoo..... Oh, wait. Wrong forum... lemme restart. Found this forum from a mention on NJgunforums.com, and I like what I see. Recently retired after 34 yrs of toil, and hope to rekindle my hunting and fishing enjoyment which has kinda languished of late. I suspect I'll be a lurker for a bit until I get my beard vs, but I think this'll be a daily visit for me!

  12. Here's my forecast. All my life of my hunting experiences, I ignored the forecasters on the news, they get a lot of money for being wrong, if I'd have to listen to them I wouldn't have gotten 75% of the harvests that I have taken! Git out there and git her done.

  13. Especially in 2019. When me, @JerseyJaysTaxidermyand @Live to Huntwere waiting for some buddies at Buck Hill, Jay had a hen cutting and yelping back to him from---- the 1st floor. Can't make this stuff up. Listen close... 20190502_192511.mp4

  14. Same here, (without speaking to my doctor), but, as I stood in a cloud of Round-up and diesel fuel killing weeds on my property, I had a sudden enlightenment that I probably had better things to worry about than the vaccine .............

Very Proud of my amazing organization today in sending 1.5 Million in supplies, and another 350k to the 500 employees we have in India to help with there families, and extended families they have that are over there.. As we are a Global organization this effects everyone.... So many selfish people in this world that only care about themselves.. Karma's a bitch....

  27. We thought we initially got 6 hens... one ended up being a rooster. We named him Bruce Jenner. Luckily we have great neighbors and are allowed to have him. He’s very protective of his women.

  28. Surprisingly little, figure I spend $35 to $50 a month and that’s it. Your biggest out of pocket cost, upfront, is a coop build. Bedding, feed, supplements, etc., are a drop in the bucket. I spend a lot more on the dog and he produces nothing, haha. As for time caring for them, maybe an hour a week. I know some folks who spend a lot more, and others who spend a lot less (both time and money). We enjoy it, it’s no different than gardening (which we also do) so it’s worth it for us, never feels like work.

  31. If you get a system down like deep bedding and gravity feeders it’s minimal work. I put a post here somewhere about my setup several months ago. I only have to restock feed 2x a week and the water 2-3 times for 9 birds. Overall I’d say about on average 30 mins a week. Minus a good cleaning of the dropping board and turning the bedding every 3-4 weeks. Still work but you can make it pretty simple.

    Ribs in a bag

    1st time trying these. Wanted to do the smoker the last few days but had no time. Sorry Tim..... Picked them up at Shop Rite today and they are unbelievable. Way too good not to make again and can't beat them for $10... The butcher at S/R said they were able to be put in the oven right in the bag. Had to read again just to confirm ha!

  40. Used to buy sell & trade bamboo fly rods and fly reels. Refinished quite a few rods also, some just a guide needing rewrapping some complete strip down like you are doing. Fun relaxing work, enjoy ! Have 2 Leonards (model 49 & model50) I don't use and would sell or trade if anyone is interested and reels to fit. A Leonard 50 and a Hardy Perfect. Below is a kind of neat lamp for a man cave. It has a Shakespeare N0. 1837 Model 60 reel / with line sell or trade also.

  43. These two Jakes were chasing patients away from the Doctors office in Princeton a couple years back and animal control had to come and remove them THEY WERE CRAZY GOING AFTER PEOPLE. I thought it was pretty cool but a lot of peopled were scared of them. CO removed them by live capture with pole nets. PRETTY COOL.

  46. This actually resembles a colony established on FT Dix that I had dismantled and put out standing instructions to check the area weekly and if the people who were establishing them were found they were to be arrested and charged with trespassing. CAT FANATICS ARE A PIA. I do not dislike cats but I hate fanatics that think they can do what ever they want where ever they want and create these eye sores on land they do not own.
