The Hell WIth It Let's Fish!

Well I guess it's time to get back into the swing of things and do some fishing... Now we never know what the weather is gonna do hear but at the very least we can go catch plenty of crappie! With lot's of pictures of course... I also think that quite possibly Quentin will get to write his first post soon!

Racks or Straps?

Hello ladies and gentleman! It's been awhile since the last post but I or shall I say we won't let it happen again! We've been out quite a bit this fall/ winter hunting deer, waterfowl, and turkey and soon to add rabbit to the list (one of the few reasons to actually wish for snow), but what seems to be the difference between us and a large portion of my social media friends (i.e. Facebook, Twitter, and Myspace (actually I have no clue what those friends are doing since really who checks that anymore?) etc.) is that the laws don't really seem to be being followed very closely. I'm not exactly sure which state mandates a person has to kill at least three bucks in a year (with a rifle during bow season no less, which is what I like to refer to as bonus round douche- baggery), but I would love to go help them out with their over population problem!

So my question to this audience is this... Do you hunt for trophies only (racks) or for the sport of it, game management, food, or any of the other non braggart reasons (straps)?

I do have to admit this year I've enjoyed my first season not using the Winchester 1400 for birds... I actually got 2 different guns I'm using the Remington Versamax (great Father's Day gift thanks again Quentin!) and the Benelli Super Vinci (day before Father's Day gift to myself...) I'm very impressed with both guns if you're in the market for a new shotgun you can't go wrong with either choice!

You Shot The Camera!

Well thankfully we get to go back to photographing and videoing our outdoor excursions today! My friend's son did something almost unimaginable last Monday... He shot the camera while we were in the blind but weirdly enough that's covered under the warranty... Oh well I guess your child's maturity level is what matters, and not there age when you hand them a loaded weapon. The 7 year old shot a turkey the 11 year old put a new window in the blind and turned a $250 camera into a paperweight... Anyways we've been out planting our food plots and hanging trail cameras out and about everywhere. In addition to looking for places to put a few stands and a couple of blinds... Why would you put out a blind in June you ask? So that the deer are used to it come September! Early preparation is the key to any successful outdoor activity! Whether you are organizing your tackle or going into the woods knowing where the game is heading at any time of  the day. Always be prepared! Anyways we've got some fishing to do see ya'll later!

Day 3... Delayed and Turkey Hunting Too... S#%T!

While day 3 was delayed due to another storm which really kinda sucked because my son got out early for it being the last day of school... The turkey hunt started with us waking up at 4:45 am and heading over to our primary spot and setting up the blind only to have a horrific occurrence at around 7 am this morning when the damn release broke...

So it's back to the house to grab the fishing gear and to wait on the mail since I was smart enough to order a new 2 ones on Wednesday night when the old one felt "off", but unfortunately they aren't arriving until this afternoon. Oh well we are gonna just grab our usual gear none of the gimmicks and go kill some time and catch us a few fish.

The camera will be rolling all day so hopefully we can hit ya'll with another post! If not have a safe happy Memorial Day weekend!

Day 2 Finally

So we finally got out for Day 2 and it was a fun time we got a lot of nibbles and quite a few bites despite a lot of the fish still being on the beds... We ended up with 2 perch, 5 crappie, 10 walleye (which was kinda funny because I forgot the lake here even had them in there until I seen the look on my son's face haha!) 12 smallmouth, and 22 largemouth. This time there was actually a notable discrepancy in the numbers between the two baits... All but five fish were caught on the Mighty Bite Lures! Not that it was a surprise given the size of the fish we were on the Banjo Minnow 006 pretty much wasn't gonna fly today. Up top is the average size fish we were catching. 
We've got one more day of fishing this week and then hopefully we get to close the turkey season strong this weekend! If it's raining I actually plan on breaking out a secret weapon... The squealing hen call we went out last weekend and used it and they came sprinting in to it when they weren't really responding to anything else. Thanks to the lightning though we couldn't stay out to get a shot though.

Day 2 Postponed

Day 2 got stormed out unfortunately, but we did get some practice in our new bow range in the basement. It was fun and productive I got the PSE Stinger bow sighted in for this weekend of turkey hunting. It's got a lot of fire power, it's accurate, and quiet (which was the only problem I had with my Nova)
