    God I want to get a deer to shut the guys at work up. Last year I shot Bambi so they don't give me credit for that and they don't realize it ain't easy.

    You should do what I do, plant yourself on top of a ridge, wait for a herd of deer to enter the clearing down below then let loose with the 40mm mortar, instant ground round........ :thup:

    As I got up to leave I turn around and see 5 turkey almost within shooting distance. I start walking towards them but made a few too many noises and they walked away when I left and got to my car I looked down the road and there are those turkeys crossing the road about a hundred yards down dammit. I would have shot a turkey

    They didn't see me because I was leaning against a big tree and they were behind me. Then i got up and they saw/heard me and they were gone. I'm going up north. We have gathered a garbage can worth of acorns to spread around. Should I buy buck pee or doe heat? I think this time of year buck testosterone works best.

    I've shot 2 deer with it. I notice a lot of guys are buying these $400 crossbows. I don't know how good they are but I bought a $1000 ten point and it shoots far and fast. 60 yards accurate

    Eons ago a bunch of us went camping, we were walking along a trail and a huge tom flew out of a tree to distract us from the flock heading up the side of the mountain. I had a .22 rifle with me and one of the guys wanted to get him a turkey....... I handed him the rifle and told him (sardonically) to have fun. About an hour and a half later he comes straggling back into camp tired and frustrated. He followed the flock up the mountain till he lost sight of them, started to turn back and he would hear them just above him and go after them again, this continued till he made it to the top of the mountain (West Virginia). He hung out enjoying the view then headed back down, partway back down he stopped to rest, propped the rifle against a tree and sat with it just out of reach on a log....... Sure enough the turkeys showed themselves and when he went for the rifle they were gone and the chase back up the hill was on....... I sat listening, trying hard not to laugh as I knew what would happen, a wild turkey chase....... :D
