  • Good scouting can pay off when...

    I don’t think you could’ve designed a better opening day for our spring turkey season!
    The rainy weather we’d been having was quickly forgotten as the woods came alive Saturday. Just as the sun started to break over the ridge … there it was, a gobbler.
    Now to some that wouldn’t mean a whole lot. But, to a turkey hunter with a shotgun in hand, on opening day, it was sweet music!
    We know there’s a bird nearby, so we’ll just hit the box call to let him know we’re here.

    In a heated battle between the Duke Blue Devils and the Wisconsin Badgers, the Blue Devils pulled out a win to take home the National title, winning 68-63.
    I’m sure everyone in the country watched this game, but I also wonder what team Kentucky fans cheered for, if they even cheered, because all UK fans hate Duke. However Wisconsin beat them to go to the championship game. So Cats fans, which did you, cheer for?

  • Turkey hunting step-by-step

    Gobble, gobble, bang, bang!
    That’s what most hunters will be hoping to hear come Saturday morning. The opening of our spring wild turkey season kicks in to gear and once again, the elusive bird will drive us crazy.
    Of course, getting a bird, or two, isn’t really all that hard.
    First, you get permission from the landowner of your choice to turkey hunt on his property. In reality this should have already been done, but if you haven’t, you better get to it.
