    We did a little of 250 on the way home, nothing spectacular but that whole area is just gorgeous.

    Jon started a thread Blue Ridge Parkway in Podunk Corner
    I have to say, the area where Bob lives is certainly one of the most beautiful places I've visited, it's filled with history and has the most incredible views of anywhere in the country. Michelle and I rode the area Thursday-Sunday and had an absolute blast. Very nice folks and the best twisty roads you could ever want. Ate up a back tire but it was well worth it. Took some mountain roads to Marlinton WV and stopped at a few historical sites to take it all in. Rode the Blue Ridge Parkway for 300 miles, not a police car seen! Here are some pics US 60 US 219 James River Blue Ridge Parkway View from our hotel after the storm we were stuck in passed

    I really lucked out marrying into law enforcement, I used to be in the same situation as Bob when I drove to and from Mass. Now, we both wear a holster for one of my 40's and switch back and forth when we are in and out of states I am not legal to carry in. Since she has HR218 covering her in EVERY state, she wears the gun in the states I can't and I wear it in the states I can. Especially when on the motorcycle because we really have no cage protection from fools and you just never know. I haven't had any reason to draw my weapon BUT if the situation should ever present itself, I sure feel better being legally armed than not.

    Bob, the state used those high flotation tire trucks because they go right out into the marsh and install the nesting poles. No need to lay down any pallets or metal grates, the trucks go right over pretty much anything . I cut the hardwoods because I'm using them for fire wood. I'm not clear cutting by any stretch of the imagination, just selectively cutting a few large oaks a year to feed my wood stove. I now have a 2 year supply of seasoned wood so the trees I cut this year will lay in 4' sections and be cut next summer (2018) for use that winter and I'll always have a rotating supply of seasoned wood to use.

    Jon replied to a thread I cannot lie in Podunk Corner
    I was bush hogging one of the farms yesterday and the state had clearcut an area so they could get vehicles out into the marsh to erect some Osprey nests. They neatly piled up a few trees they had to cut down, cut into 4' sections, stacked easily so I could fill my tractor bucket and drop into the bed of my truck. Yes, oak and cherry. That's a score for me since I've been slowly cutting the hardwood trees out of my woods and I only have so much. I found several piles, all of which are coming home with me. Sorry to get this thread back on topic, don't mean to ruin your wood fest.

    I recently had a guest that had some trouble handling multiple long rods Not sure what kind of things you are up to down there but I now have a good idea. Were the cats involved?

    Neither! The tom I shot roosts across the street in the woods. The jakes were roosted in my other border farm's woods. I haven't had any roosting on my property far as I can tell. Normally, I can call until I hear a bird then I'll go quiet for a while to see if they are coming my way. If, after a period of about 15-20 minutes, I don't hear them I will softly call again to see if I can get a gobble. If I hear nothing, I just sit and wait. Over calling gets the birds on alert and will make them very shy around here anyway.

    I've seen this guy for about a month, he started out very inconsistent in his timing but has been getting more and more dependable. I saw him last week on camera almost every day at 0800-0900 so I hunted him Saturday for a few hours. I setup in a generic spot where I can see allot of real estate. He snuck up from behind and gobbled once, sounded like a shock gobble because he sounded off right after a crow called. I never saw him until I got down to leave, he saw me and flew away. As I was having my coffee Sunday morning, he came into my back yard from the side woods which allowed me to pinpoint where he was coming from. This gave me enough info to get a good spot to setup this morning. As I was setting the decoys this am, I heard a few gobbles from the other direction, it confused me until I figured out they were Jakes. I was able to call them in with just a few clucks and purrs, they came right into my decoy spread and messed around for a few minutes before leaving. About 15 minutes later, I heard one gobble from the same location he was in on Saturday, I knew then that he was coming! He popped out of the woods and into a lane I keep nicely cut (across the ditch from my food plot which was where I was sitting) at about 35 yards, I let him come in a bit and once he started strutting, I shot his face off. When I took him to the check station, the guy there measured and weighed again for me, he measured the spurs at 1 1/8" and 1 and 1/4" which was a little bigger than I measured but either way... I wasn't able to get on many last year so this is a thrill to take one on my own property. Especially thrilled because the ass hats that lease the farm next to me had surrounded my eastern flank with blinds and I didn't think I'd get a chance.
