Back from KS with bird #4 of the spring – pic heavy

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

I normally head to KS for the archery opening day, but this year drew an IL season 1 tag which started the same day so it would have to be week 2 before I made it this year. Because of several things, I had a day and half to make something happen before I had to head home and work for one day. That first day and a half hunt was not productive in terms of kills, but we had lots of jakes up close and a few toms just out of range. So, I drove the 6 hours home, went to work, then headed back. The first morning when I returned was just one of those days all turkey hunters look fwd to all year. The field I hunted the first couple days had been covered up with birds, but they were dispersing quick so we decided to walk into a place we hunted 2 years ago and set up where we sat then. We got all set up in the pitch dark and just as we were sitting down, birds gobbled close! Click the thumbnail for a short video of them gobbling as day breaks:

A little calling and they were definitely interested. Before long a couple was in the field with us strutting very slowly towards us. When a hen answered me in the woods, I kept at her until she got mad enough to come out and see what was up. She came right into the dekes and by this time a 3rd tom had joined the first two and they picked up the pace towards the real hen. Soon they were right in front of us, a few yards past the dekes trying to decide if they wanted to thump our strutter or jake, or follow the hen who had now lost interest.

I like to let them come into the dekes and get a little video and watch the show myself, but I was pretty sure these 3 were gonna chase some real tail so it was time to let it fly. You can see the green lighted nock on track for a good shot.

His buddies and one more tom turned to enemies quick and were on him before he could even make it to his death bed off the field edge.

I don’t get caught up in size when it comes to spring turkeys. To me, it’s either a jake, or a tom and what the measurements are end up just being chance. I am not gonna pass up a bird with an 8 inch beard waiting for 10, or whatever. But this bird appeared to be the best of the 3, and it is one of my biggest ever. He was 25 lbs even, 11" and 4.25" beards, with 1.5" and 1 3/8" spurs. I hunted a couple more days and blew a chance at another bird as he turned to leave the dekes, taking off his beard and some chest feathers! 18 hours of driving in a few days for this turkey but I love it and I’ll be back to KS before it all ends trying to get another.

Good luck to everyone else out there chasing birds. For those interested, I was using my Xpedition Xcentric and Hot Shot X-Spot release.

I hope this hasn’t been shared before. I have always wondered how to get my trail cams higher and point them down. This looks super easy and very affordable.

Going from wrist strap trigger type release, to thumb release and back.

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

Does anyone here use both types of release with their bow, and if so, what adjustments did you make.

I use a Cobra Pro Caliper for hunting, but would like to use a Truball Absolute for 3D and target practice. However, it results in a lowr anchor point and i feel like I will need to raise the peep slightly and adjust the sights accordingly. Is that common?

Switching from FMJ to Axis? Brass inserts? Need help choosing spine.

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

I’m gonna try the axis arrows as my new hunting arrows. I’m wanting to try the hit brass inserts (either 50 r 75 grains) to make up for the wieght diff between the two arrows. I like a hard hitting arrow, just don’t like the bending of the FMJ’s. I shoot a Mathews z7 at 68lbs with a 27" 400 spine FMJ arrow and a 100grain swacker. What spine would I need in the axis when adding a 50 r 75 grain insert?

Climber platform slid down tree from 15ft up

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

So, I was climbing up a tree when all of a sudden my platform slid down to the ground. I was working my way over a knot with a lot of down angle on the platform when I lost it. Somehow, the platform was no longer tied to the seat section (my fault), so there I was looking down at the ground holding myself up with the rail. Sitting on the end of the rail, I attached a ratchet around the tree and secured the seat section. Carefully twisting into the seat, I sat down to assess the situation. I saw the platform connecting the rope which was hanging from the bottom of the seat, thinking way too high to jump.

This is the first time I have ever had any kind of incident with a stand, fortunately I had practiced self-rescue this summer and it came in very handy. I took my figure 8 descender out, attached it to my life line, swung out away from my seat, and abseiled to the ground. Sounds easy?! I tell you what, despite lots of practice just for this reason, it is a totally different animal going off a secure spot that high up.

A couple of lessons learned:
1. 2 straps to secure climber sections together is better than one.
2. Whether or not you use gloves to hunt, at least carry them for
emergency descent reasons. I got a bit of a rope burn.
