Hello all …
And a shout out to all that have been enjoying the last few weeks of our Ontario Spring Turkey season ! I tagged my 2nd bird this morning
,( approx 1hr North of home base ) dropped the hammer on him just before a thunderstorm rolled … I packed up quick , before the rain and headed home .Just cleared the memory card
… here are some pic's from the last few weeks .I took 95 frames
of this little chipmunk as he entertained me during a hunt last week .. here are four of my favorites .A doe and fawn
walked by my blind during another hunt …Got a picture
of a snapping turtle looking for a spot to lay eggs …My daughter
is in the Yukon for a summer job > her dogs are with us for awhile , and while I'm doing chores ( picking field rocks ), they like to case birds out in the field … here is picture of them returning from a charge ( Jill's two dogs in the foreground , our big girl lab “ jade “ coming back in third place ) you can see the birds flying off in the top RH corner of the frame …Always find time
to take a few shots with my Relayer and Vixen … makes yard work fun !As I drive from farm to farm scouting
, I cross the bridge @ a local lake and see some other guys enjoying their hobby … looks like a floating poker game to me ! I wasn't feeling well yesterday
… so I stayed home …. Then this morning I headed approx 1 hr North .Not far from
the farm that I took this nice Tom on last season …The sky was ripe
with thunder and lightning as I drove North … I got set up a little later then I expected , but I was lucky to call in this scrapper , Just before the rain came …. packed up my gear quickly and drove home to nicer weather for pictures .Nice Tom …
18lbs , two beards ( 9 inch and 2 inch ) … a matching set of 1 inch spurs .
Approx 45 yard shot > Blackcloud #4 's > Extra full turkey choke > Hatsun Escort Semi > called with a beat up H.S. Strut box call I found on crown land last season …. great way to wrap up the season .Good luck to all that are hunting the last few days ... hope the weather holds out / you shoot straight / and take lots of pictures !
