The Past Couple Weeks in Pictures

IMG_5856_zpsr6o6qxcl

I’ve been busy the past few weeks and haven’t had much time to post much, but some good stuff has been going on. I finally got my archery buck from 2012 to Nick Krvioniak from Vivid Taxidermy a while back. He turned it around really quickly to use in the West Virginia State Taxidermy competition. The deer was over 300 pounds live weight and was 24 inches behind its ears. [Read more…]

If you need to, and haven’t already, pattern your turkey gun.  I made this target in photoshop this morning because I didn’t have any.  If you need a target, click the image, let the full size image load, then print the page.

Killing Turkeys on Small Plots of Land

turkeyfarmI’ve heard it more times than I care to admit.  “I’d love to turkey hunt that place, but it’s just not big enough.”  Believe it or not, killing turkeys on small patches of ground is not an impossible feat and sometimes it can be downright easy…if you have a solid plan of attack.

Pigman Shows Off Scary Shooting Skills

Look out Jerry Miculek, Pigman is now the king of pistoliers.  Pigman, who’s real name is Brian Quaca has a show on the Discovery Channel as well as one on the Sportsman Channel which both revolve around, you guessed it, pigs.  I stumbled across this video last night of a hog encounter.  Pleeeaaase Watch it.

Maybe I’m just being a stick in the mud, but I don’t really think that was the most safe way to be handling a firearm.  But whatever, maybe I just don’t know how to have a good time.  What do you think?

Beating Cabin Fever: Winter Turkey Scouting

Old man winter hasn’t quite let up on us here in western Pennsylvania, but that doesn’t mean you have to sit in the house.  Late February and early March happen to be my favorite time of the year to get in the woods and scout for turkeys.  As long as there isn’t snow blowing sideways, I’m outside.

Darwin Award Candidate of the Year

Watching this video makes my skin crawl.  I thought about this once a few years ago and after a little rough math in my head I realized that yes, this was physically possible.  Not once did it cross my mind to try it.  This guy was a mouse fart away from disaster.
