just wanting to wish all good luck this bow season! indiana's starts friday of this week and i know that everyones ready. most of our crops have all ready came down early this year due to a very hot n dry august. i think it will be an interesting hunting season this year. it has been nice meeting and putting faces to some of the members this week at the county fair. ive met bobcatbuddy, gunshow and talked to many other members there at the booth. ive had a good time listening to our "no pin admin" tell the adventures of his recent elk hunt in colorado with some of our deer space members out there. i guess you have to hear him tell it to get the full effect of the way he decsribes it. maybe next year some of us will all get the chance to go too. so keep em straight and flying on target and good luck to all. dont forget to donate extra meat to the fhfh or to your local food banks... it does make a difference!
dont know about the rest of you but i think fall is coming early this year. i have noticed in the last two weeks the leaves changing color and falling. now this week the corn in northeastern indiana is changing fast. i have seen one field half taken down allready. the hot and humid air is changing and the nights are getting shorter and cooler. the smell is in the air and i have got two squirrels so far this year. you can just feel it in the air, the excitment of the stalk and the chase. hhmmmmm my blood is pumping just thinking about it. come on october first !!
if you havent checked out the avatar contest take the time too ! i have enjoyed looking at all the avatars from old friends amd members to the new friends and members. it is a blast to me seeing some of them. i cant believe how life like they look especially the ones i know. not to say the ones i havent met dont look life like, because they do !! so far i think everyone looks like their avatar, thats scary in a way. good luck to everyone and remember to vote every day !!

just wanted to say thanks to everyone who came out and beat the heat on saturday. the humidity was terrible, but the fellowship was awsome. it was a pleasure meeting some new members and great talking to everyone. a special thanks to doug treesh for all the hard work you and your wife do for such a great cause. the farmers and hunters feeding the hungry program is a very worthy cause. if you have a chance where you live to help out and donate to a similar group, it would be a great thing to do. thanks to bass n bucks for having us out. thanks to all who made all the great food. i'll have to say my two favorites were indianahunter1's deer chili and wanabe's stuffed bacon wrapped jalopenos ! AWSOME !
i was just wondering what everyone was going to bring to the potluck on saturday night? im going to whip up a big batch of ponyboys pasta salad. i cant wait to meet all of you and see those i have have met before. god willing we'll have some good weather and great fellowship !

you know here in indiana that the fall hunting season is just around the corner when you hear the locust start chattering. i usually notice them around august, but this year it was july. i am getting excited about bow season starting and all the deer that i have seen in velvet allready this summer! the beans and corn are growing taller and taller every week and school is starting up soon. i know everyone gets ready to go early every year with the scouting, food plots and all the preperation of the gear.
well opening weekend in northeastern indiana was quite different i must say. the weather was not cooperating to say the least. it was windy and scattered rain most of the day. saturday was pretty good with movement but not much gobbling going on where we were. i took ds members cody95 and monsterbuck24 out with me. we saw a couple of birds but no luck. sunday morning was beautiful out and they were gobbling for over an hour straight after sunrise. but we couldnt get them to come in close enough for a shot. then the rain came in hard and left for a while then came back in hard. this seemed to be how the rest of the day would go for us. so we packed up and on the way out i about stepped on one nesting on the back side of a log i walked by. he got up and flew to a tree top, but still no shot for me. all i could see was his back side moving fast and away. so hopefully the weather man will be right and the rain will go away for a couple of days. it was still a good weekend to be in the woods with the boys having fun. thats what matters to me, we'll get them sooner or later.
has anybody ever scored their turkey??? our local paper had an article today on how to, so i thought i would share it with you.
there are three factors in determing the final score for the bird they are as follows....
1. the weight of the bird
2. the spur length
3. the beard length
first you get the birds weight. second you measure both of the spurs in inches and add them together and multiply by ten to get the final spur score. third you measure the beard length and mutiply it by two to get the final beard score. you add the weight, the final spur score and the final beard score for the "final score". the indiana state record was 2009 in jefferson county by Loyd Roberts with a final score of 148.0000. if a turkey has more than one beard it is consider "non-typical" and placed in a different category.
