    Surf and Turf reacted to bigugli in Central Sakatchewan   
    As a gift for my birthday, The family paid to fly me out to the prairies for a 10 day fishing trip. What a fantastic time with my family. Then there was the fishing. Never hit the water for more than 4-5 hours each day, yet we were catching 50-120 fish per session. The tactics were simple. Baitholders with leeches, and our worm harnesses tipped with worm, leech or minnow.  Minnow and ball jigs , with a sickle hook or casting jigs tipped with twisters or paddle tales.
      The fish were insane. Walleye out there were fighters, not dead weight.  Pike were a lot thicker across the back as compared to pike in southern Ontario.

    In case you missed it Looney Toon's has taken away Yosemite Sam's six shooter and Elmer Fudd's  trusty shot gun. It's still ok to blow everyone up with TNT and Elmer Fudd now has a Scythe to hunt bugs bunny. What kind of sick bastard would hunt rabbits with a scythe? Somedays lately I think I'm on an episode of the twilight zone!

    If caught using a prohibited weapon it doesn't matter what the prior classification was. Not worth the risk getting caught using it, best to store it away and hope that this nonsense gets repealed.

    Your right gunner, If they were targeting any other group, changing the legalities of personal property on a whim without notifying them as to additional changes that caused them to be criminals, people would lose their minds, lawyers would be coming out of the woodwork talking about how unconstitutional it was and the Liberals would back off and slink away. It is definitely going to take a fight on our part to get them to back off on this. Hopefully they underestimated us! Jason Kenney out in Alberta is talking about taking legal action against the federal government, hopefully Trudeau follows suit on backing down to save the Canadian Tax Payers legal fees like his argument in handing over $10 million to Omar Khadr(doubt it). They aren't afraid to squander tax payers hard earned money for legal fees to fight veterans, or now Canadian gun owners but are willing to throw millions at a terrorist.

    Yeah it's hard to comprehend their thinking but Trudeau's response might sound something like this.  There is no place in Canadian Society for "military grade" weapons that are designed to kill as many squirrels as possible as quickly as possible! Plus it's scary looking!

    Been watching  two toms and a few hens in a field for the last week in the same spot every day and decided to make one last attempt at shooting a bird this season ...saw them in the field around 5 pm so I went home got my camo on and made my way down the railway tracks to where ive been seeing the birds ...they were along the edge of the bush so I snuck out to the edge of a hydro tower and stuck a decoy hen in the ground about 3 ft from the tower and set up about 30 ft from the tower in some short scrub ...made 3 chirps with my mouth call and waited ...15 mins goes by and I was getting anxious to see a bird coming so I stood up almost to get busted as they were walking my way at 50 yrds and closing I dropped to my knee and chirped once more and got a gobble ...in came the tom along with the Jake following...they walked side by side the whole way to my decoy so I had no shot ..as they now have figured out the jig was up the tom started turning away from the slightly less smart Jake and I perched up and nailed him at 30 yrds..tom down! Sorry crappy pic but he flipped into a puddle when I shot him.

    Hopefully the Conservative party can get their act together as soon as possible. The NDP and Bloc are acting as useful idiots right now supporting the LIberals in suspending parliament along with pretty much anything else, as long as some goodies are thrown their way. If the Liberals try to call a snap election this year, need to break out the torches and pitchforks!

    Surf and Turf got a reaction from verado in Thursday morning Turkey Hunt   
    With all the pictures of Turkeys being taken I thought I had better get out again before it was too late. I planned all week and figured to up my odds that I had better upgrade my Jake decoy, so made a run to Bass Pro on Wed. to pick up a Avian X HDR quarter strut Jake decoy, because of course it would make all the difference over my 10 year old cheap foam one.
     
    Wake up on Thursday at 4:30, can't get my son out of bed so go off by myself. Get out to the farm I was hunting around 5:30, get to my spot carefully take out my fancy new decoy out its custom carrying bag being careful not to get it dirty as I set it up along side it's homely foam hen girlfriend, then settle in. I decided to try to let the decoys do the work this time to avoid scaring anything off with my less than professional calling, so just laid in wait in silent anticipation of a big Tom.
     
    It was a beautiful morning to be out, The sounds of the bush in the spring are amazing, with ducks and geese flying low overhead along with a couple blue herons. Noticed that not a contrail in sight in a cloudless blue sky. I had a groundhog walk past me about 10 feet away, which is a fairly rare sight these days, a small grey and yellow bird landed a couple of feet in front of me, hopping from branch to branch looking at me curiously and eventually flying off.(not much to meat on them so let if be)
     
    Around 6:30 a loan turkey walked out of the bush about 100 yards off, walked straight out into the field about 50 yards or so, turned around and walked straight back into the bush. Then just before 7 a Jake came flying out of nowhere gliding down and landing about 20 feet from my decoy, took a couple of steps toward it then turned around and ran back towards the bush, it then slowly walked away along the brush line. I could have easily shot it when it first landed however wanted to savour the experience of it coming in and interacting with my shiny new decoy.  Instead I got to savour watching it slowly disappear into the bush. Maybe the decoy is too fine a looking specimen and intimidated the young jake. I thought longingly about my old foam one that he might have been more comfortable one hanging out with.
     
    Around 8:00 I heard a distant gobble, after 15 minutes or so, I decided to throw caution to the wind and pull out my box call. I tried to keep it subtle and to a minimum,  it sounded like it closed the distance to about 70 yards or so but hung up, talked back and forth with that turkey until about 9:30 with it refusing to come any closer and having to get back to work I decided to pull the plug and head back.
     
    No turkey on the meat pole but a great experience non the less. I'm hoping that I can get out with my son at least one more time before the season is over but between the honey do list and the need for Perch It might be tough.

    Hmm, I don't like the looks of that! Ever see "Invasion of the Body Snatchers"?  I'd pour a big jug of roundup on it, wait a week, then burn it. If anyone in your household starts to act strangely, run and don't look back!

    Good points Verado,
     
    You won't see it in the media because it doesn't fit with the official narrative.
     
    Even in the Nova Scotia shooting they downplayed to this day that the perpetrator wasn't licensed and had used illegally obtained smuggled guns from the US. On top of that he had been reported by two separate people to the RCMP of violent behaviour and possessing illegal firearms, with neither complaint being acted on. They said that one of the guns was of Canadian origin then later admitted that it was the sidearm taken from the Mountie he killed. If they simply would have enforced several already enacted laws the tragedy could have likely been avoided. The shooting of the RCMP officers out in Alberta a few years ago followed a very similar scenario.
     
    Criminal don't abide by laws. If they aren't afraid of shooting someone in cold blood, or being shot,  they certainly won't be afraid of breaking possession laws. There is a large and growing segment of our population that doesn't share our cultural beliefs, value our freedoms, way of life, value of life, or work ethic,  that built our country and think that's it's cool and a viable way of life to carry and freely use a gun and know that their are few repercussions. Until their is political will to address this the issue will get worse before it gets better no matter how many guns they ban.

    Next item on the Liberal to do list,  end Drunk Driving!
     
    Liberals are thinking about banning, high power, "Race grade sports cars" to eradicate drunk driving.
     
    I can hear it now. Drunk drivers kill thousands of citizens every year and unlike the Harper government we are going to end it once and for all. There is no place in our society for High power "Racing grade sports cars" !
     
    Even four cylinder Mustangs will be on the list because they look scary!
     
    Just kidding, but no more ludicrous than the "Assault Weapon" ban.
