It's Been A Long Time...

Wow, it has been forever since I blogged. Life has been pretty crazy since this fall/winter. I have been attending police academy and have had a lot of other things going on. Luckily I was able to enjoy a relatively productive deer season and have already had a successful turkey season. Opening day was a week ago yesterday, and I managed to bring down an 18 lbs. jake. It was a pretty cool experience, as it was my first kill out of a blind and I used my brand new Mossberg 835 Ultimag turkey gun. Yesterday was my second day of turkey hunting and I called in a small jake off the roost. The landowner and I were hunting together, and I called the bird in and he walked right between us. We were sitting 15 yards apart! The bird came in gobbling the whole way and put on a show for us. It was his lucky day, as neither one of us was looking to kill a young bird. I graduate academy in a week and a half and hope to get back into my normal schedule. The past few months I have spent all my time typing notes, so hopefully I'll get back to typing on my blog! Check out the pictures of my bird in my slide show on the right side of my web page!!!


  1. Awesome. I shot a jake last year - my first bird - and I can't wait to try and put a longbeard on the ground this year.

    Enjoy the last few days of the academy, and good luck if you head back out into the woods.

  2. Congrats on the bird Tom. Jake finally got a chance to shoot that 20 guage over the weekend. He loves it!
