Good luck this fall. Spring didn't go so well. Been seeing and hearing a lot. Starts Oct 1 and runs all month here. Plenty of acorns so they should be in the timber. Will do the fall brush hogging next week so edges of the timber will be clear as well as the clearings in the woods.

Finally seen a nice flock of turkeys this morning. It was looking promising... the were walking towards me, until a stinking coyote showed up. The turkeys decided to skedaddle. Other than that. Seen 6 doe a couple 6 point and an 8 point,2 squirrels and way to many chipmunks.

You didn't take out the coyote?
No. I had the shotgun loaded with 3 1/2" #4 shot. With the coyote at most 20 yards. Them big shells kick this ol' mans butt. I was saving my shoulder for a turkey. LOL But I did have a 22 for if a squirrel stuck around before I had to leave. But I wasn't sure if the 22 would have been a quick kill.

A 3.5" #4 @ 20 yards = 1 dead yote.......:cool: Same shot as on a Turkey, High neck/head.

It is a Jake. Beard measured 6.75" And as far as the kick, your right. I never thought about it till about 15 minutes later. LOL
We'll have to wait on taking the son and wife out. Her brother passed this afternoon. esophagus cancer. But maybe get her out there to relax a bit.

Sorry to hear about the loss of a family member! Said a prayer before sending this, and will mention him, and y'all in my Sunday School class this morning.
