Well that's why they call it hunting and not killing, lol.

Last spring about 18-20 turkeys started wandering through the yard about the same time I turned out the chickens. They would actually go in the coop and absolutely empty the feeder. Now this property is 3 acres. 1.5 inside city limits, and 1.5 in the county. Well in order to preserve the. chicken feed, I would close up the coop after letting the chickens out, but I would get a half of a coffee can of cracked corn (cheap) and throw out for the turkeys. It got to the point that they trusted me and they gather around for their feed every day. Once they finish, they proceed on their rounds of the surrounding country. But come morning, they are standing at the coop waiting to be fed.

Here's my question. With no turkey license, if I took my .22 or pistol out and popped one, do you think I could convince the game warden that the turkeys are domestic and belong to me????? Answer quick, Thanksgiving isn't far away and I have fresh peanut oil for my turkey fryer. hahahaha

By law unless you purchased or raised from eggs you probably have to buy a hunting license. By Country standards I'd consider one of those my Turkey

Check your local laws, but I can't imagine that it would be legal to take one without a license. Of course, in my area local hunting laws rarely affect the behavior of some of the locals. With only 1-2 game wardens in a large county, he can't possibly be everywhere all the time. Personally though, I'd hate to read the article in the local paper about the only pastor in town getting caught poaching, so I'm pretty careful to follow the rules.

Went to a new waterfowl area south of Butte, MT. Small pond fed by an underground spring (which means open water). We got in at 6a.m. and there were HUNDREDS of ducks and geese on this thing. We managed a few before they all blew out, and then caught a few more coming back in to roost.

We're going to have to come up with some blinds and a strategy for this one. Lot's of good birds here.Lot's of Goldeneyes and scaups (which I don't eat), but managed to dump a mallard and we all got some geese. I only took one goose, as we prefer mallard and duck...

Good size Canadian's-

My 13 year old daughter shot her first deer yesterday! She got a nice, mature doe. She was tickled pink when we found her. She got her from about 150 yards with a .243. A local landowner set up 4 big hay bales and made a nice blind for us to stand in.

Nice looking buck, Threerun. She did good. Hope the meat tastes as good as the rack looks. You see the video talking about using a pressure washer to clean it instead of hours of boiling it down?
