O.K. I admit it. At times I find myself envious, even jealous of the pro-hunters and fisher folk that made the big time. They get to hunt or own expansive tracts of private ground and hunt the big name ranches. Basically do the things that I dream about doing.
Trapped in a workaday world, an average outdoorsman like myself has to squeeze a busy schedule just to find time to slug it out on the public lands and small tracts of private property that one has been lucky enough to garner permission to enter. I`m sure that many of you out there can relate to this.
That`s one of my reasons for this project. I want to give some insight into the other side of outdoor adventures, the side not often seen in the hunting and fishing shows on the T.V. While we may scrimp and save to charter a boat, or take a guided hunt, I don`t own a big vessel to run around offshore in, or large acres of private land to hunt on.
I`ve been fishing as long as I can remember, and hunting crowded public lands for decades. Long enough to be able to offer some tips and tactics to help those getting started fill the stringer, or perhaps even hang their tag on a nice Tom Turkey, or a nice doe for the freezer, under the most crowded, high pressure conditions you could imagine.
TURKEY SCOUTING AND TROUT FISHING
Last spring, Mike, and his friend Mike got in on some private land in Virgina to hunt wild turkey. Of course, they needed to scout it first, not only for turkey, but to find the boundaries of the property where they had permission and set up spots. When their mission was complete, with the afternoon free, they headed on to some recently stocked trout waters to try their luck, and Mike caught a really nice trout! Be sure to join them on the adventure as they offer tips for both activities that could help you fill the cooler!
