    Agree, it is a fantastic documentary for all the reasons you mention. Definitely worth a watch.

    Fine bird, Stix….congrats. I bowhunted for turkeys a few times this season, but I got my limit with a shotgun. I have no qualms about hunting turkeys with a shotgun…in fact I prefer it. I get the same googly-eyed, heart-hammering, freak out experience with turkeys regardless of the weapon I’m holding.:D:D

    Stone point screwed into carbon arrow. It’s like hitching your Lamborghini to a horse and pulling it though town. It’s like dressing your supermodel wife in a feed sack.

    It’s a smidge psycho if you ask me. Before buying this, a person should sit down with their inner yoda and have a pow wow.

    I havent been reading as much as usual the last few weeks. I have a stockpile I must get to.

    BUT….I did start my mostly annual pre-turkey season reading of “Better on a Rising Tide”, by Tom Kelly. My favorite turkey hunting book…..a true gem of a book.

    I like it…..Yeah, the sponsor signs at the beginning were a little goofy, but still better than the way most “hunting vids” bash you over the head with product placement b.s. There have been a few videos like this lately that are thoughtfully done and quite enjoyable to watch.

    I sort of keep up with her and her family via these here interwebs. I think she could make a good spokesperson for what we all love to do.

    One of the last two weekends in Feb looks best for me, right now. I’ll check with the Boss. Maybe come down Thursday pm? I could get a buddy or two to bring the pointers and we could quail hunt afternoons.

    Nah, not in my experience. They typically want no part of people.

    Doc,

    The Woodsman was a gift from a friend, and I liked the long sleek look of it, so thought I’d give it a shot. I’ve shot two blades exclusively since going trad, mostly Magnus 1’s. I don’t know how much of the sparse blood trail was due to the head, or if it was the hit. The shot was maybe a little high, and the pig was very fat, which reduces blood as well. It’s only one shot, but overall I was pleased with the head. But for the most part, I still prefer my two blades….certainly if going after anything bigger.

    Dave, Desoto passed through this swamp back in the 1500’s with a bunch of pigs in tow. The old story holds that they are the descendants of escapees from his pigs (imagine herding pigs through a thick swamp in chain mail dodging arrows!). In reality, folks have been raising, losing, and releasing pigs in the south for a long time. I’d imagine these hogs are a genetic buffet, with most being black but other color combinations are pretty common too. They are really an ideal critter to hunt with a trad bow….big game, but if you can beat their nose, you stand a decent shot at being able to sneak into range. And like you said, they are delicious.

    Be careful and have fun, Gents. Anxiously awaiting updates. Oh, as of 8:08 am, Etter had just crossed the Tombigbee River in Bama heading west. 😀
