    Ann and I have been turkey hunters from way back before it became so popular. We hunted around Leo's home in Hannibal Missouri for a number of years. Ann's big gobbler was in the first wild turkey record book from the NWTF in fact.

    I like looking at all the old hunting pictures that others have put up on here and I would encourage all of you that hunt to show us your pictures. This site does a fantastic job with the SCTP pictures and it would be interesting to see what these kids hunt, if they hunt, because I am sure with all the new technology their photos far surpasses what we old guys did or could have done. So please post something for me to look at.

    Those Manitoba pictures sure bring back some great memories. The first year that I was up there the amount of Canada Geese, Ruffed Grouse and Sharptails was amazing. The second time not so many of those species, but many snows and blues and larger animals. A great time both times that I was able to go.

    4C451DDA-B142-46C7-A98A-BEB679A8A8C0.jpeg I thought I would go ahead and post this picture of my good friend Jim McGuire with two sons Joe and Shane. Also in the photo is myself and good friend Brad. We lost Jim this year and we of course all are missing him terribly. This day was memorable because it was are best ever one day bag of ruffed grouse and Jim was there to see it even though he was to weak to go out. Miss you buddy.

    Did lots of grouse hunting when I lived in northern Ontario, shot my first one on thanksgiving weekend 1974( first pic). Not exactly your classic bird dog in the picture, lol but he was my Grandparents little companion and loved going hunting with us. He flushed that grouse up onto a tree branch ahead of us while we were walking an old overgrown trapping trail. My Grandfather handed me his old Iver Johnson Champion 410 single shot and said put the bead on top of the head and squeeze the trigger. That 410 seemed like a cannon to a kid used to shooting air rifles and 22's at the cottage.
    Of course as I got older I graduated to bigger and better guns but I have that 410 since my Grandfather's passing and occasionally I make a trip a few hours north to the woods and "pot" the odd partridge as Gramp used to call them...

    But as I said as I got older I graduated to bigger and better guns and real bird dogs...
