    Ct turkey opener

    Today was our season opener in CT. I got out to my spot around 5:30 this morning only to get caught by a hen walking along the field. After letting her wander off, I figured it would worth a try to set my decoys in the same spot. I was on top of a small hill with the valley in front of me and...

    First shot at a deer

    Last friday, I watched four does come down the hillside next to me. These were the first deer I've seen in two plus years in my hunting area. I lined up the shot on the largest doe, pulled the trigger and watched the flash in the pan instead of paying attention to the sights. It happens.

    Newbie when to load question

    I have the same situation, I load mine (minus priming) just before I leave the house. If I don't shoot, I keep it loaded, usually in a cool spot (breezeway or garage) for the next day.
