“Where’d those feathers in the truck come from? Is that blood on your collar?…..you’ve been turkey hunting again………haven’t you?!
This is Vic’s first experience with his master going turkey hunting without him. He just is not understanding the concept of seasons. He says that’s what goes on food right?
He was a loyal pup last fall hunting his heart out and tolerated me hunting deer alone, but that was it! Now the spring turkey season is in full swing, dogs are not allowed and he is getting his feelings hurt. So is it best to honest tell him to stay while I leave or is there some good sneak tactics?
Step 1: Purchase one of those inflatable slides that airplanes use to evacuate planes and mount it to the side of your bedroom window.
Step 2: In the evening, make sure all of your hunting gear is next to your bed and far away from Vic. (Hopefully he doesn’t slumber in your room or this method would be trickier.)
Step 3: Set the alarm on your cell phone to vibrate and slip it into your pillow. (This will give you the best chance of Vic not knowing you are awake.)
Step 4: In the morning, when your pillow vibrates slip out of bed and into your hunting gear.
Step 5: Open window and pull the release on the emergency slide.
Step 6: Kiss Mrs. Elk on the cheek for good luck.
Step 7: Slide out into the twilight of morning and tiptoe into the woods.
Step 8: After hunting, slip into the house while Vic is distracted by Mrs. Elk. Toss your turkey into the fridge if needed.
Step 9: Run up to your room and change into normal attire.
Step 10: Have Mrs. Elk lead Vic to the outside of your door and pretend that you just woke up as you come out of your room. Vic will totally believe you. 😉

Congratulations Smitty a very nice bird indeed.
Remember WI has virtually unlimited tags. So I must ask which bird would you like to know about?
Would you like to post your story here?
We will go with both ends of the kill spectrum. How about how big the runt and how big the biggest ones were.
And i would be honored to post my story on your website!
