Hey Mark
 
Don't sell the 410 short my hunting buddie started shooting a 94 winchester in the 410 bore for deer
and has been very succesful the last 4 yrs. with it.
He keeps telling me he is going to use it for turkeys.

There is a lot to be said for the "Old School" stuff. I too started with what is now outdated camo, homemade face masks and a 3" Mossberg with a modified choke. I killed a lot of birds with that gun before I finally bought a full choke barrel for it and eventually the 3 1/2" Mossberg I shoot now. I did kill one bird with a 2 3/4" while recovering from my accident and back surgeries. My camo, calls, shells, etc. now are most all of the latest rendition but I probably kill most of my birds by the old tactics of good woodsmanship, good setups, minimal calling and much patience. I think they are the most rewarding birds too.

"looks to me that some of you fellers would have to quit turkey hunting if the decoy or the blind or both were outlawed. "

I do hunt them without a blind or decoy not because I think I'm better then anyone else but because its more enjoyable that way.

"Good calling is a skill that needs to be learned. Putting a decoy in the ground is not."

"There are big differences between duck hunting and turkey hunting though. If you can't understand that you probably need decoys to kill turkeys."

"I'm sick of hearing as long as its legal its ok. Politically correct bs is what that is. "

You all want a good laugh take a look at the pictures I posted under Fall Hunting ( I Thinks Its Over ) and Photos of Last Hunt. Just click on the link, I am still learning to post a picture here on this forum. I only got this far thanks to WisTrkHtr.

Take a look at my up to date camo. Frank calls it my antique hunting clothing. Its good for a laugh.

Question is. Is that oldtimer enough or do I have to drop the camo shirt/hat and go old suit and tie? [:D]

Nope, you've got to go around looking like Gen. Custer here.

By the way, I will now be using the term "old timey" in place of "old school" so as not to step on the toes.

HI JPH
 
Looks like he has two birds over his shoulder and you have one.
Might be something to this "OLD SCHOOL STUFF" after all.[:D]
