  • When the mugs haven’t been washed in a while, it’s just a well seasoned mug at that point, if you wash it, it might wash away the luck you been having. Just have to look at it from a positive stand point? Lol

  • Congrats on another great hunt! You've probably been asked this a hundred times... Why do you not show the spurs and the beard length after you kill the birds? I know you like to measure beak to tail, but maybe I'm in the minority here, but I love to see spurs and beards (no matter the length). Thanks

  • I love bowhunting deer but turkeys gobbling in the low light are the most exciting thing I've heard in the bush (probably because I've never heard an elk bugle in person) and I live for it. First bird shotgun then compound for the rest of the season is my jam.

  • What an absolute hammer gobbler, that bird has probably fooled many hunters in those very woods. Something to be really proud of getting in there and taking out the king of the hill. Love some dagger hooks like that, getting right on top of him was the move, congrats.

  • I think he was gobbling at the noise you two were making in the leaf litter as you crawled slowly into position. In the blue dawn light that could very well be a hen coming to his gobbles as far as he's concerned.

  • Watching these videos this time of year gets me so amped up, turkey season here in Vermont doesn’t start until may 1 and I’m counting down the days. I love hunting them right out of the roost if I can. One hunt, there was a big bird that would not gobble in the evenings, I tried everything to get him to gobble but nothing. The night before opening morning I had watched him for about 3 hours until he moved off far enough I couldn’t see him anymore but I heard him fly into the roost. Come opening morning I hike in the dark to where I think I might be close. Sun comes up just enough to see and he hammers 10 yards away from me up in the tree. That was the most exciting thing I’ve ever experienced. He then flew out of the roost completely wrong direction, I moved 3 times along the top of the ridge scratching every couple of minutes, one of the hens he was with was mad that I was trying to take her Tom and she came right at me running but she couldn’t find me so she was walking just below me to my right. As I turned my head to look back towards the gobbler I catch what I think is the hen on my right but I looked and it was a fanned out partridge. Coolest thing I’ve seen turkey hunting. The Tom came in a few minutes later about 30 yards away and I dumped him. 20lbs 10in beard. It was truly an amazing hunt and experience.

  • I wish I could have seen videos like yours in my earlier years. Being in my 50's that crawling around stuff is a lot harder to do. I still try it but just not near as nimble and flexible as I used to be. Thanks for the great hunts and explanations of what y'all are doing.

If we had a nickel for every time I have seen persistence pay off for you and the THP crew we would be rich! It is a great lesson for all of us to live by that when things get tough you don't give up, but instead you keep going and good things will happen. Great information about the why afterwards one of the things you do so well! Keep it up guys and Thanks!

  • If you know where he is roosting, go in mid day and scout a way to get under him in the dark quietly. Be there an hr earlier and you would’ve shot him as his feet hit the ground. Done it so many times I can’t remember. You are definitely a turkey slayer tho, way ahead of you’re age!
