Hunting Withdrawal Syndrome

“A man may not care for golf and still be human, but the man who does not like to see, hunt, photograph, or otherwise outwit birds or animals is hardly normal. He is supercivilized and I for one do not know how to deal with him.”  – Aldo Leopold. It’s mid-June and I’m grumpy. There’s yard work to be done, household projects to be completed, weekly errands to be ran, and a variety 0f other tasks that need to be accomplished. Ugh, the rat race gets …

Friday Funny: Turkey Talk

Here’s a #FridayFunny I came across on the Internet from Fatal Approach (Game) Calls about spring wild turkey hunting. The other day, I saw two big gobblers checking out me in my hunting blind. I think they were talking about turkey calling ability (or lack thereof)! That’s why they wouldn’t come within shooting range! Can turkeys laugh? Have a safe, fun weekend in the field. It’s all about making memories and the stories of the hunt! Remember, the helicopter incident with our Jeff Rawlinson of Game and Parks and his …
