    Finally.....turkey hunted the new lease, today.....

    I had two young gobblers come running in to me, this afternoon, and let them both walk....they were young and dumb, with short beards....gonna go back in a couple of days to find their grand-pappy, hopefully.

    Ran into the landowner earlier, before I hit the woods, and it musta been my lucky day....he showed me three more blocks of timber that he owns, and asked if I wanted to hunt them, also....well, duh!!!!!....of course, I said, "Heck, yeah, thank you!!!".

    All toll, I've now got his permission to turkey hunt on about 1,000 acres, and the lease price can't be beat---Free!!!!....he's addicted to rabbit hunting, and has some jam-up beagles....I've let him hunt my place for the past 20 years, and he has become a great friend....I'm a lucky ole s.o.b., for sure.

    Damn! We NEED to make plans to hunt together on that place next year.
    I got a pair of boots that need some Mississippi mud on em!
    Sound like an ideal set up!

    Our season doesn't start for a couple of week still. Y'all are making me jealous.

    Cap, the landowner lost his son to cancer recently, and he showed me a spot his son had fixed up to ambush the turkeys, and had killed tons of turkeys from there....it's an old feed shed in the middle of a cattle pasture....he cut a hole in the wall, and installed a makeshift window....he said I was welcome to use it, too....it's big enough for both you and me, if we suck in our guts.

    Postie, there are deep 2-3 acre cattle ponds all over his place....all are stocked with bass, bream, and one larger pond has crappie and catfish....he said his brother owns a 60 acre lake, about 3 miles away from the hunting land, which I was welcome to fish, also.

    When my kinfolks in Alabama sold off most of their hunting land to a timber company, last year, little did I realize that was a blessing in disguise for me....Bama was a 6 hour drive for me, and this new place is only about 1 hour's drive for me.

    Somebody pinch me, 'cause I think I've died and gone to heaven !!!

    I hate Eddie. Unless of course he has access to private fishing holes in sw Arkansas that he could get me permission to fish in. In which case he would immediately become a prince among men

    Cap, I already put you a 5 gal. bucket to sit on, inside that feed shed....if it ain't tall enough for you to look out the window, I'll bring a 55 gal. drum for you.

    QA, I've come to the conclusion that rabbit hunters are raging addicts, just like duck hunters....if you can find some old grass patch with a few rabbits, invite a landowner and a guy with some mangy dogs over for a hunt....he might just own some turkey woods to swap hunts with you.

    I don't turkey hunt but I'm in serious need of some fishing waters.

    Well, heck, drag yo' butt due east on Hiway 82 over to Lake Chicot....the crappie spawn is just turning on, in about a foot of water....that danged ole Bucksnort guy keeps promising to come down, but I'm pretty sure he's so nookie-whooped, he's never coming, so come over, if you'd like....if you like mudbugs, come by the lakehouse....my b-i-l is "suppose" to cook a 35 pound bag over there, sometime this weekend.
