Sweet! Great job bud. Love to see young hunters carrying on the tradition. My first turkey eluded me till I was 26. And I started hunting them at 12. Nobody would hunt turkey with me anymore because I was such bad luck. A nice gobbler like that is something to be proud of.

Also nice boar Moosehunter! You got them figured out, that’s for sure.

Congrats! My season starts on Monday, and there's over 2 feet of snow in the woods right now. Not really sure what I'm going to do. I doubt it will be gone by the time my season ends on the 3rd.

Is that shotgun season?
Because our shotgun season starts tomorrow and ends the last day of May.

I don't think we have a weapon specific season here. I'll be using my longbow for the majority of the season. I messed up the end date. We end on the 6th of may, not the 3rd. It would be nice to have a long season like you have. The snow might be gone by then. Not that I'm complaining about the snow, it's awesome, I just want to be able to hunt thunder chickens :lol:

Congrats Valrag, looks like a good time! I would dearly love to hunt africa.

What kind of rifle & can did you use? I put a suppressor on my 300 win mag but it messed up the barrel harmonics & hurt accuracy so I dont use it anymore.

Nice animals everyone!

Turkey season ended on the 6th without me ever drawing my bow. It was a rough year considering there was still a foot of snow for the majority of it :lol: I did manage to call in two big toms one morning but they hung up around 50 yards and wouldn't come any farther. Almost called in a coyote too one morning but he circled downwind of me. I guess that's why it's called hunting and not killing. It's always fun :)
