Judging by some of the new shows on cable TV, folks have an interest in where they came from, their ancestry, what makes them, themselves.  For the weekend, let me give you a little glimpse into some of my blood, and have some fun with it. . . . I have mentioned before that there is some musical talent in my blood.  Let me prove that by sharing a photo one of my cousins shared with me:  Here is my …

Time to post my first report from Nebraska’s spring turkey “woods”.  My kids and I have been spending time with the birds for several weeks now, we started scouting before shotgun season opened.  We have been relatively casual about our hunting so far, going when we have time and hunting at a leisurely pace.  Nebraska’s spring turkey season lasts for several weeks and we are in no hurry right now.  There will be trips and days when we get a little …

Please allow me to interrupt my usual subject material here on my blog. . . . It is turkey season and my mind can only concentrate on one thing at a time.  Right now it bounces back and forth between spring turkey hunting, mushroom picking and fishing.

It’s a Wrap, Spring 2015 Turkey Season

As I write this, there are still eleven days left in Nebraska’s 2015 spring turkey season, but I believe my kids and I are done with our time spent in the field with those big, beautiful birds this spring.  Time to give you a report on our adventures. . . .

Tuesdays are for Toms

Thought I’d share a few of my better photos of this past Tuesday’s spring shotgun wild turkey season hunt with you. One of the many reasons I love spring wild turkey hunting in Nebraska is calling in and watching a big, old tom like this one. The words of Ben Franklin ring true when I am observing wild turkeys.
