Ready to Hunt
« 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!

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
