My intent for the post was to give any do-it-yourselfers on here that like to piddle with their gear an idea that I tried, simple and easy, not to debate the use of decoys or to be told that those of us who do are not true hunters. But the king needs to understand that it is a war or even a battle that he cannot win, because probably far more TURKEY HUNTERS use decoys nowadays than don't. I imagine that Will Primos and Knight and Hale and the others could give us their decoy sales numbers that would curl your eyelashes! And man, those pink legs sure look good!



I hear you.I don't use decoys very often but I play around to see how I can make them look better.I will let my buddies use them I guess.lol

Why do you have to post crap like this?Does it make you feel like more of a hunter than others.I am so tired of you attacking people and then posting stuff about Tn hunters being rude to you.Ithought you were gonna try to respect people more but I guess that didn't last long.I just can't understand why you have to try to run others down.

I hunt the woods also and don't use decoys much.But I dam sure don't try to act like I am better than someone sitting on a field.i also don't understand why you think decoys are are sure kill.I know a lot of people who use them that don't have turkey run into them.I have talked to a lot of people who say they have spooked as many with them as they have killed.I just wish you would not talk down to everyone like you do.


It makes him feel better about himself. But hey who am I. According to him I hunt the Butterball Turkey factory that is Marshall County where every Tom Dick and Harry can kill their limit. What a joke. He has no clue. Just let him post crap and boost his ego because after all he is the best turkey hunter in the whole state and if you dont do it his way it isn't right.



I remember him posting that.Man he has some nerve to talk to people like that when he ran to west tn to fill 3 of his tags because he couldn't get it done in the mountains that he loves to brag about hunting.Just messing with you hook ;\)

Wingnut, go back and reread that post I emphatically stated it was a joke, if you can't get that then I am sorry, but there is no way I could have been clearer when I posted that. No turkeys, no matter where someone hunts are that easy, it just isn't the nature of the bird.

And if you want to keep pounding your chest about how good you are, we can have a friendly little competition next season. I made a joke, and you flipped out, no problem, but if you are throwing it down, I am picking it up.

BSL, 4onaside, Wingnut, and all the other folks look above at the smilies. There is jokes and there are jabs, the smilies are meant to explain which is which.

Relax, not everyone is out to get you, or run you down. Sometimes people make jokes, and then highlight that by making (what they think) is a clear reference to that.

Here wingnut, can you say over reaction on your behalf? See the laughing smilie, it is meant to be a joke, not a serious harsh comment. Take it easy, there is a time to be edgy towards others and time to understand that there is no ill intent meant.

Of course marshall county is fine, it is one of the best in the state. Heck if you can't kill 4 longbeards there, then you dang ure can't kill one at the butterball factory \:D

maybe you have said so many things on here that putting a \:\) at the end of your comment doesn't mean people still believe you are joking.

Well that is what \:\) are for, so people know another person is joking and not being serious.

Sure I am opinionated on things, but am usually crystal clear if I am joking or not, so people do not get their panties balled up if I am, in fact making a joke. Guess that doesn't work either, as people just walk around with their panties in a wad \:D

I have no problem with the jokes, yeah I know that I am fortunate enough to hunt in a county where you have to work to kill a bird but not as hard as some. Hook it seems to me that everytime someone post something about decoys or the way they hunt you have something negative to say and its the same argument everytime. You beat that horse to death already no need to keep beating. I can take a joke with the best of them, but after a while it gets old. I might just take you up on the friendly competition. I haven't pounded my chest not one time, I think that may be a case of the pot calling the kettle black there (insert smiley here). I havent been the one talking about how many birds I killed and how many I called up for people, I think that was you.

Don't get me wrong I kill, have killed, and will kill a lot more birds in the years to come, looking to turn hundred plus into thousand plus before I leave this world. Been doing this forever, and although there is tons in life I suck at, turkey hunting seems to be one that just came naturally for me. I also, enjoy passing knowledge on to others and watching folks kill birds as well. However, there are plenty out there just like me, and plenty out there that make me look like a piker.

I do have issues with the full strut decoy stuff, nothing to deny about that. I think it has taken turkey hunting down a bad road, and I am not alone in my opinions on that as well.

You must not have known that I hunted the easy part of the state this year, and killed 3 in 3 days, it wasn't that easy BTW. I just had somethings go my way which normally wouldn't.

The only things I will speak out about is full strut decoys, I think it is sad their creation. I also have issues sneaking with full strut decoys as blinds, more so because of the safety issues. Other then that, I could care less, I do not advocate ambushing turkeys, but hey everyone has their own style.

If I make a joke, I highlight the fact. So cherish the times I do make a joke, cause they can be few and far between \:D
