I dont think anyone can really analyze what they did wrong with turkeys. They are finicky creatures by nature. It seems anything out of the ordinary spooks them. The only way to get the upper hand on them is to go out every chance you get. I got within 30 yds of the roost, two gobblers mad as heck, I clucked a little and they flew down to about 15 yds. I get my bow drawn back, and out of nowhere comes a coyote.

My point is that bad luck is a given with turkeys (in my experience). But they will slip up at some point. Just gotta get out there. Dont overthink them, get a general idea or pattern where they roost and set up. I battle internally with turkeys everyday so i may not have been much help, but I hope you understand its usually them and not you.

Bowhunting NE Metro. Had a gobbler at 8 yds, draw back and shoot. Arrow deflected off of the wing bone im assuming? Turkey ran off just fine. Didnt graze it, arrow was where the bird stood. Cut feathers at the scene.

I am shooting a NAP Spitfire Double cross mechanical broadhead on a 65 lb bow. I think the tip didnt penetrate the wing bone enough to start slicing, hence deflection? I split a bucks shoulder blade in two this fall. Very disappointed with today. Do I blame broadhead? Bow? (Plus blame myself...) Ever happen to anyone?

My report is that there is a lot of activity, alot of henned up toms.

Thanks for the info! Couldn't pass up the deal so I bit. It doesn't have CHIRP tech but I read that the power output it almost greater than CHIRP anyways.

Yes, this unit has DI/SI where those are extra with HB. Dan- I think "QuickDraw Contours" is pre-downloaded on this unit, which is more or less what AutoChart Live is, I think?

It looks like a pretty good deal, but only hesitancy is using my Helix 7 on hard water, where I don't know how convenient it is to do with this Garmin.

The Garmin unit is reg. price $1000 from Cabela's, on sale for $450. I was bent on the Helix 7 for about the same price. Not so sure now. For use in a small Lund. Couldn't find a whole lot of information on the Garmin. Any thoughts, good or bad?

Thanks

I just picked up the Otter XTH Lodge. Compared to the Eskimo FatFish 767i I had, the Otter has higher quality fabric and pole joints and zipper. The Lodge would fish 3 very comfortably and 4 is not out of the question.

A feature I like about the Otter that my Fatfish never had was the Velcro windows that could detach for direct air/sight to outside.

Average year, had good days, had bad. White Bear - Hugo area for us, with a few days on LOTW and near Fergus. Be nice to a find a late season goose shoot over Xmas. Unfortunately MN is a fly over state now due to poor habitat (drain tile). Had a full moon with a north wind if I remember correctly, that would tell me a night migration possibly?

I'm new to bow hunting, I am going to check my trail cam this week. My laptop does not have an SD card reader. So when I swap out the SD cards, and want to look at the pictures, I think I need an adapter of sorts for the laptop....Anyone know the name of a specific adapter? Something I could pick out at Target or Walmart?

Thanks
