Some pic's from 2011 turkey season, so far + video link
Our prey = Eastern Wild Turkey " Meleagris gallopavo "

We hunted several farms and took some beauty birds on our 2011 Ontario Turkey opening day ...

Vic R. , Tim and Jim S. were set up in local spots ...
They had some decent action in the morning .Vic and Tim took a beauty Jakes ( shotgun ) .

Jim S. took a beauty Jake ( Excal crossbow ) .

This is link to Jim S's video ... Excalibur Equinox with video mount above scope .
( cool video , great shot ... jake expires within sight of ground blind )

Randy,Chris,Skip and myself were set up on two farms across a concession road from each other ... we saw birds in the morning , but none of us connected !

We broke for breakfast approx 9:30am and had a good laugh at a video Chris took showing a missed opportunity on three beauty birds !
( hey ... it happens , and even better when you catch it on video so your buddies can rub it in ! )

Skip had to go , so Randy , Chris and myself put time in on another 5 farms total .... we came up with three birds total in the afternoon .

Man did we get wet ! ... Randy picked up a beauty opening day Jake with his newly acquired Remington 870 pump .

Image

I picked up a nice Tom with my Y25 Relayer ( 2216 with 130 gr Wasp Broadhead ) ...
My wife took a picture with my pocket camera , once all my gear was dried off in the barn .
( arrow still in place .. at 42 yards I didn't get a pass thru )

Image

7 1/2 inch beard ...

Image

1 1/8 spurs ...

Image

As I mentioned before .. CH " Chris " and his father in law "Skip " missed a few birds all caught on video !
Chris redeemed himself and got a nice Tom later in the afternoon with his Remington 1187 .

Image

I originally had the week off , but with fluctuations in my work schedule ,
I'm back on night shift and busy fitting in spring chores at home between bouts of rain !
" Gotta make hay while the sun is shining ! "
Never get lonely doing chores ...
I have the " crew " with me at all times ! ( " Spike " our mini Dachshund , " Jade " our lab , and " Gus " our pet Tom )

Image

" Gus " is never far away and can be heard gobbling ( I love that sound ! ) every time I swing a hammer or make noise working on the barn etc... The barn is very old and its age and construction design lend it to heave / sway during the different weather swings ... so the slinding rail door needs lots of adjustment !

Here are few other pic's I pulled from the memory card ...
Early this month a Mennonite farmer planting ...

Image

And a couple of scavengers ...

We will be back at it Saturday trying to fill our 2nd tags ... Good luck to all that venture out ... Safe Hunt and have fun !
