    Is it Spring yet?

    I just got done hosting our local NWTF chapter banquet, and was talking to a few guys about video taping hunts. I had forgotten about the short films my buddy and I shot 2 springs ago in Kansas. The link below is one of my favorites.. I could watch that bird gobble 100 times and not get tired of it.

    I had killed my first bird of the day about 2 hours before this one. We got set up on him less than 30 minutes after my first bird, but I could only see his head and neck, and couldnt tell how far he was, so I passed. We circled around him, and set up, only to have him circle back around us to come in.

    I normally pass on Jakes, but any Jake that is man enough to come in spitting, drumming, strutting and gobbling, is gonna get killed.

    Not looking forward to this spring as much as I was last year since I will only be hunting around the house this year. But still ready for it. Went to Texas and Nebraska last year. Killed 4 birds and had a blast!!

    I can't wait until spring, we are having our banquet this month as well. I've got a big winter flock in my river bottom right now. I saw about 100 birds the other day on my wheat field, not sure how many jakes & hens. There was 17 longbeards, so we will be after them before long. Time is limited for me these days. My kids are all in sports, so spring is really busy. We got 1 in softball, 1 in t-ball & 2 in soccer. We fit hunting in the open slots, it's all good!

    Spring is the time for fly fishing.

    Fly fishing here amounts to standing shoulder to shoulder with 500 other people and the local trout park, to catch some trout that was released from a holding tank 2 hours earlier.

    Spring was made to smack a gobbler in the mouth with a load of 5's in the morning, pick a bucket full of morels after lunch, and then go catch some bass before dark!

    You live in the wrong state. I can fish miles of rivers, and never see another fisherman.

    Felt like spring here today! You are right, Fink must live in the wrong state. We have 30+ miles of designated fly fishing on the North Umpqua just 15 minutes from my house. I love Oregon! If only we had hunting like Wyoming it would be paradise!

    I live in the wrong state for trout fishing, that's for sure.. But I live in the right state for bass fishing. Not as good as TX, OK, CA or FL... But we've got enough to keep me entertained.
