Trumpets / Wingbones Forum / Re: Is it me, the call, or both?
« Last post by Chris O on Today at 06:02:27 AM »
I agree with what everyone has said. You can probably kill turkeys with your calling. Sounds like you just haven’t practiced that much. Spend some more time with it and recording yourself helps. Practice the soft calling this teaches you that you don’t need that much air to make it run. It’s always fun to buy new calls but I bought too many when I first started and slowed my learning process. Lip stop positioning was the most confusing for me. I was constantly moving it trying to get the sound. Don’t worry about the lip stop as much As I did set it to where it’s a comfortable amount of your top lip on the call, roughly the thickness of your top lip and just play it. Once you are sounding more like a turkey then you can start adjusting it. Have fun I love playing them and wish I would have used them from the very start of my turkey hunting.

State(s) should offer refund for any unusable tag (do to covid closures).
So far, IL is the only state I know of posturing with a no refund policy that only applies to state owned ground permit holders. NR can still hunt too. But as a resident with a state ground permit I'm out a hunt and money. I will fight the later though.

Yep, I'm from IL as well. I read a statement somewhere the other day from the IDNR Director saying that there nothing in Administrative Rules to deal with issuing refunds.  Therefore I guarantee our on verge of bankruptcy state will never turn loose of a $.

Besides the one I saw in Tennessee, the only other one I saw was in Southern Missouri  back in the 90s. Also back in the late 80s or early 90s, my Grandpa shot a red phase gobbler one spring. It was a gorgeous bird as well.

Turkey Hunting Tips ,Strategies & Methods / Re: Favorite vest?
« Last post by Marc on Today at 01:59:58 AM »
Been using the Nomad vest this season coming from the cable as tactical Tat’r 2 and I am really starting to like the vest. Seat is way bigger than the Tat’r and just as comfortable and I don’t feel like I’m sitting off the front of it like I did with the Tat’r. Striker magnets have held in place perfectly so far and way more pockets than the Tat’r. On thing that sucks kinda right now is the seat system, the magnets don’t stay locked in 100% of the time but if you have the buckles clipped and the magnets break loose it holds the seat basically in the same position my Tat’r speed seat did when flipped up.
That is a great point.  Maybe it is a height or size thing, but I am not a fan of the tat'r seat.  I spent an hour on it on Sunday and I am just getting over it!  I rarely use the seat as I carry a lounger for most hunts.  If you use that seat a lot, it would be smart to try it on.  I noticed Aaron from The Hunting Public uses the tat'r and he seems to sit right down on it.  He is a different sized dude from me.
I noticed the same issue...  But, I find it no more difficult to physically push/pull the seat forward than deploying a magnetic seat (which you must also reach around to do).  But the Cabela's seat does not need to be "re-deployed" on a quick move. 

I only use the seat in the morning to keep my butt dry...  Later in the morning (when the grass is dry) with running and gunning, I often remove it.  In the morning, when I am going to sit a bit, that seat is nice...  And dry.  Later in the morning, I am often covering a lot of country, and trying to make very quick moves into strategic locations, and I simply would rather sit on the ground than deal with a seat (or chair).
