Title: Ready to Hunt
Post by: benny8 on Mar 16, 2020, 03:13:38 AM
Don't know about the rest of y'all, but I'm ready to turn off the news and social media and head to the cabin and nature. Up there I can do my business in the woods if need be. Now is the time I bet the city slickers were wishing they were outdoor literate. In Claremont, there is not a roll of TP to be found. For that matter the food shelves are bare as well. Us hunters and fisherman are sure one step(Giant) ahead of them when it comes to sustenance. I'm ready to go hunting!

x2 on that.. turkey season can,t get here fast enough.. hopfully most will be scared to venture out still and i can hit some sweet spots for some big gobblers in peace. Until then still have plenty of venison,Haddock and pheasant in the freezer.

If my freezer gets empty before this is over, I think turkey will be considered legal game... Wether the season is here yet or not...

I had 8 deer in the backyard this morning and I was thinking similar thoughts Dom.

My freezer is in great shape though.

Out behind work this morning.  Had to be 25 to 30 turkeys.  Lots of fans.

Just had 30 Turks in my backyard! 3 nice Toms.

The grocery store seems to be expanding. Walleyes should be running soon too. Surf and turf anyone?  ;D

So My life has been largely uninterrupted by all this crap going on. Still working, Still finding peace and solitude in the woods or on the rivers.
I've got 2 Toms all scouted, 1 for me, 1 for my boy. I'm a little curious what might happen for Turkey season? Check in stations may not be open. I know I plan on taking my boy out youth weekend 25th-26th, this latest shutdown is until May 4th I think. So do we just shoot birds any way and just forget the check-in process?
I can tell you this,  birds are coming home with me either way. Have you ever heard of them cancelling hunting season....this is crazy.

Mine has had zero interruptions. In fact, itís just gotten busier. I keep hearing all this ď day 21 at home yada yadaĒ. I get it, I do. I also wouldnít mind a day off. Havenít had one since the shanty get together. Yeah my kids are home and the wife is now not working but Iím so busy at work now the money isnít a issue anyhow.

I try to walk out back to the river each night and scout or listen for birds and take a few casts. Iíd like to travel though outside of my property but an fortunate to be able to do it all at home.

Now is the time for NH to get with the times and start online registration be a great benefit for all, no better time.

Same here on all fronts. Work is PLENTY busy. I get home from work tired and want to relax, and the fam is bouncing around cause they haven't been anywhere...
And I am lucky also to have several hundred acres of untouched forest in my backyard. It's great, I haven't lost any time in the woods.
I agree with you on the online reg thing Frank. Great idea. Doesn't Maine already do this or were thinking of doing it at some point in the past too? It could work well, probably pretty easy.

Yes Maine began implementing it last year, however I still had to bring my deer and turkeys to a registration station. I as a hunter donít have check in access yet but at least they got the ball rolling with no more paperwork and instant numbers. More than NH can say.

Itís a real pain in the balks for me when I shoot deer or birds in NH and haveto leave them in NH overnight and find a place for them because I canít cross the border with it unregistered because the state wonít let other stores open tagging stations when the local one to me is never open. Litterally some of these deer were in the other state that same morning and just walked across the river lol

Same here on this front, been scouting and have a few in mind for my daughter and i also talked to the check in station by me and i was told they are essential because they also sell firearms and ammo so they plan on being open and checking in birds. i wouldn't worry too much about it. although i am gearing up to deal with the notes that will be on my truck when i get out of the woods, iv'e already been stopped by people who have nothing better to do and are so scared blaming me for not self quarantining and spreading this sickness... Life is alot better in the woods!!!

Bingo! Life is always better in the woods.

Life is so much easier for us that are deeply connected to the outdoors and the natural world. Such a simpler life.
The people that rely their whole life on the synthetic world are the ones sitting at home bored and freaking out. They don't have that connection and are not able to rely on nature for the solution to their misery. They can't function without all their man-made s**t. Most of us can live off the land we're doing ok through all this.
We are the lucky ones here for sure.

Well, I got my answer today. Called NH F+G, they said online reg will be in effect by Turkey season start and we will have the option to still tag at a station if there's one open nearby. She said the official press release will be out in the next week.
This will be much easier.

Yea, hopefully it works out well and it's not just for this particular season.

Post by: aquaassassin on Apr 15, 2020, 05:59:06 AM
It would be a huge relief for me not having to find a spot in NH to leave game overnight because they donít let anyone besides Taylor register near me who is open like every 4th Saturday of the month if your name starts with a A as long as you come between Noon and 1. and I canít cross borders because of it.
