Default **Official Hunting & Fishing Thread**

Was putting together my new rod and reel combo and thought to myself that a thread just for hunting and fishing would be interesting, since I know that a lot of people on here enjoy these hobbies. Seems like good timing since fishing time is coming around for most of us and turkey season will be coming up soon.

Feel free to share a little info about yourself, hunting/fishing stories and of course pics.

*Please no badmouthing hunting or fishing. This thread is merely for people with similar interests. If you don't agree or have issues. Please move on and refrain from posting to avoid conflict. Thanks.








----------

A little bit about me. I'll soon be 19, and I live in Kentucky. I hunt turkey, deer and squirrel mostly. Trying to get into some rabbit, dove and waterfowl and trapping if I have time. Fish all the time, mostly bass, pan fish and catfish. Trying to get more into musky and trout as well. I have also began frog gigging in the last year.
I dont have many pics, but here are a few I've took over the last couple years.

Spring Season 2010- 10" Beard, 1 1/4" Spurs


Fall 2010- About 22" (not big, but I like the pic)


Last Summer

4 lbs.



Around 19" long

Im so excited too! Can't wait!

I had a Pflueger Presidential Series on a Shimano pole, but it went swimming in the river :/

Bought a Pflueger Trion GX Micro and a Berkley Amp pole (light) the other day.

Nice. My favorite pole a Fenwick, took a bad one last year in some pretty high whitewater. I went down tried saving my beer (drunk redneck mistake) and broke the pole on a huge rock. I also run pflueger reels.

I had to shoot mine twice lol misjudged the distance and was using a 20 ga. First shot at about 60 yards and tracked him in the woods for another at 20.

Coyote has been something I've wanted to get into. Becoming a problem around here.

I used to deer hunt but coyote hunting took over. Its alot more fun to be sittin along a cut corn feild and have a pair of yotes runnin at you at 30mph at 2:30 in the am than sit and wait for a deer to walk by

Coyotes are taking over. I put the hammer on one 2 years ago while turkey hunting. After I called he came running in looking for dinner I think. My turkey gun is pretty deadly. It's the Winchester super x2 3-1/2" with a 28" barrel

I love coyote huntin. Found any game calls will bring in all night long or use an injured coyote call. Don't have a particular gun I like to use but the 30-30 was pretty when they were sittin just on the edge of my spot light the other night. They're bad here. They'll come right up to the house to try and get at my dogs
