  1. Thats awesome Ed!

    I hope you left some birds for me though :)

    My season begins next weekend. And I'll be hunting in the waterloo and sharonville areas.

    I no longer have any private land to hunt at all. The farm I used to hunt was sold this past winter and the new owner wouldn't even let me bid on a lease.

    Glad you were successful :thumb:

  2. I've been trying to get a turkey with my bow for quite a few years now. I've come close several times but so far I have never succeeded at it.

    It's one of those things you know, that gets under your skin. You wouldn't think it would be that hard so when you try and fail a few times you either get more determined or give up completely. I've never been one to give up.

    Call it determined or stubborn. Either way I'm not giving up :no:

    Thinking maybe this is gonna be my year :)

  3. The nice weather is really sweet. I'm starting to feel better lately. I was able to get outside and shoot my bow this afternoon. Made me feel good just to know I still could. I was starting to get a bit worried I wouldn't be able to bow hunt ever again.

    Doctors still aren't sure what been wrong with me. We all just hope/pray I keep getting better.

    Hope everyone is getting excited for the turkey season :thumb:

  4. Glad your all right Dave. Not a good time of year to take a swim.

    Looks like a couple guys capsized their boat on the grand this morning. Hopefully they are all right.

    I was up to oscoda the past few days for my b-day. The ausable is low and clear. Couldn't find any fish either :(

    Had the whole river to myself. Saw one other fisherman the whole time I was up there. Lots of waterfowl. Saw a couple eagles fighting. Fish would have been cool, but oh well. It was worth the trip anyway.

  5. I've landed plenty of skams on 8lb test. Not all line is created equal though. I use P-line. I also tie good knots and keep fresh line on my reels. Makes a huge difference. Braids suck when its nasty out. And just wait till you get it stuck in the rocks and can't break it off.

    Each to his own though. No right or wrong. Just what you prefer.

    Personally I prefer longer rods and lighter line.

    Basically the shorter the rod the heavier the line needs to be and vice versa.

  6. Congratulations on your deers :thumb:

    I had a pretty good season too this year. I've been on vacation this past week and I am literally worn out. No big bucks but I did get a nice doe.

    We were able to enjoy venison for dinner every night while I was off. It was a perfect vacation. And believe it or not I'm actually not bummed out to go back to work today. I need a brake. This huntin is hard work :grin:
