I was covered up in does but no bucks tonight. : (
You are going to be the envy of a lot of folks here!
My hunting experiences as of late are restricted to rural West Virginia roads and the weapon of choice, an '07 Jeep Liberty with V-6 engine and 4WD. Apparently deer and turkey are wildly attracted to it, I have narrowly missed a few of them.
I ate Canadian goose once. It was greyish, greasy and I found a few shotgun pellets in it. Only if I am starving would I want that again.

Prichard WVa?! I know that country! Been there a few times in years past.
Timmy, the rural life is great, isn't it? I wouldn't trade it for anything.
Ignorance is a long way from stupid, but left unchecked, can get there real fast.
yup. We lived in WV for 5 years before moving to Ohio. White's Creek Road was the street, it connects to 52 about 4 miles North of Prichard.
Speaking of turkeys, just today on my way to work, an oncoming car kicked up a whole mess of them that were hanging out in the road. We both slowed down as they scattered up, down, N-S-E-W. They were everywhere. I see this bunch just about every day but this was the first time I've seen them playing "chicken." LOL They usually hang out in the hay fields, not far from the creek that runs through them.
I listen to an AM radio talk show every morning on my way to work and it's based out of Sacramento. And every day I hear the traffic report for that area and all of the wrecks and traffic hazards in progress and it makes me think how lucky I am to be living in an area where for a 25-30 minute drive to work every day, it's great to live where I see more wild turkeys than cars and people. I may pass 6-10 cars going the other way in a half hour. Life is good.

Turkey is one thing I've never had much luck with. I did manage to nab one with my AR while I was deer hunting once. Never seem to see any while I'm turkey hunting.
Anyone here ever had Pheasant? Now THAT is good.
Yup, but not in the numbers you guys have them out there. I usually get one or two a year.Anyone here ever had Pheasant? Now THAT is good.
My stats of the season:
Lotus - 0
Coyote - 1
Next time I'm breaking out the electric calls. ...Got a huge black one on the game cam, too. I hope I can take that one.
We had wild turkey once, and it was wonderful.
A church friend hit and killed a turkey while driving to work (we live in the hills of Appalachia). He used his cell phone to call my wife to see if she wanted it, and she agreed to meet him on the main road as he drove past. She hiked the quarter-mile and was waiting for him when the mailman showed up.
Being in the South, the mailman stopped to chat. Mid-sentence, the friend zoomed up, reached out of the window with a dead turkey held by the feet, and handed it to my wife. They nodded to each other, and my friend went on his way to work.
She then finished the conversation with the mailman, who had rather wider eyes than he did earlier. No explanation was asked for or given, and she then hiked back up the hill to deal with the prize. One day we may tell him the backstory.
Patting my stomach that night after a very nice meal, I remarked appreciatively, "Honey, that's the best roadkill I've ever had."
I'm living the life, too.
No license or tags on your land? ? ? You suck! Lol. I wish it was that way here in Arkansas. We have 1,000 acres in the mountains and its awesome. Of course when you bow hunt like me, my season started sept 15 and goes until Feb 28! Wild turkey is incredible. Almost as good as back strap.....should be loading the freezer up again this weekend. Great job on the kills, you would love the wild hogs in my neck of the woods! Great taste as well.
