    Turkey's up my way, ya mean like the bearded bird that thundered up outta the yard and off thru the pines that morning last June as I came bustin out to door to .. uh... drain off the last coffee, those the kind of turkeys we're talking about? After you're done with your spring trukey, start looking into where the elk are in Ark. A lot if similariitys in turkey and elk calling and if you think yer hearts pumping when the gobbler busts ya, try a screaming 800lbs Bull in you lap. That will tune you up for fall turkey...
    Its amazing the difference the sound make, my bkie tires are a bit aggresive, so I get a bit of noise, not a whole lot, can be heard maybe 30-40 yds way, more likely to hear me than bike tires. My deer season open the 2 week of July, Bear 3rd week-end of Aug. 2nd day of deer season, I park my truck in the predawn light , just outside the boundry of a Hunting clubs camp. Unload my bike , put my bow ito the rack, and put my pack on. Off I pedal down the timber company maintained oilbase road in the growing early morning light. just light enough for me to see the road, and the edges of it. 200 yds later is the gate, get off pass bike over, mean time they're all still snoring, and I back on the road From thje gat to where the next sub road turned of droped 257 feet according the gps, so what little pedaling was doing kept me moving 10mph, I get to my turn off, and start up the mountin side, ride up the gate there, that has a convienent walkaround. Roads real steep, so I just push on up the hill, have to stop 30yds above the gate get off and walk it up. CRACK,SNAP...I'm thinking..whatthehel SNAP CRACK SNAP, and I look down towards the road where the sound was headed, and here comes a bear, 3/4quartering away, until he got to my scent trail, at the turn, made an about turn, crossed the road broad side to me, I took my mental picture there, his rear feet, just onto the dirt of the road, across the grassy center and just into the grass on the far side of the road, over 5 feet, his shoulders where as high or higher that the handlebars of my bike thats 40 ". Bear season 5 weeks away. Quess where I hunted all summer? I know that encounter was all due to the bikes steath.

    These's lots of way you can help the turkey pouplation in your hunting area, and I'd start with getting a grip on the local perdators, skunks, coons, fox, and coyotes all make a living off those turkeys. They can devistate an area, especially if the nesting area is poor, until those polts can fly, they're on the menu. By the way, varmit hunting is another pretty good way of getting your heart thumpin. a fox scull make a real nice european mount especillay when its a bow kill !

    I hope you get the bear you described,sounds like a good one.most of the bears in this area are in the ozarks(mtn.country)i live in the delta but they were plentiful in this area years ago.Its funny 15 miles west is our hunting club witch is all mountains(hills compared to ur country im sure)but its a good club for the most part.I have hunted turkeys here in the river bottom and get just as much enjoyment out of it.Of all the years of being a trk driver i never made a trip that far north in cailf.bakersfield is as far north as i ever went.I stay local anymore.You never did give me the scoop on the saddle bags for ur bike.Gonna get mine tomorrow,heck u may be on to a new t v show.Bow an Bike Madness,bet the drury's will jump right on that.

    Default The bike bags

    I made the pack on the back of my bike because there's nothing like it on the market, you can find bike bag, but not with the capasity of mine. It has 2 main compartments, one on each side a nd one on top, eash has a compression strap, the top has two crossed compression straps, so the deer head can be lashed down, fastens to the bike and rack at 5 points. It is designed to carry a quartered deer, and to tighten it to the bike so there no load shifting as you ride, the front corners of the side bags are angled to allow heel clearence while pedaling. It has 2500 cu. in. of storage.
    Sorry to report, that bear plum eluded me, but I mapped him out pretty well all during the rest of the year. Got a real good idea where his home core area is. and found traces of him in couple of places I suspected he'd be. Had to be carefull not to blow him out of the area by pressuring him too much. It suprised me running into him like that, and so will be approching the area differntly, and try to find him in the berry patches that I marked on my gps.
    Do you guys know where the Pope and Young black bear came from? Right here! And that bear I ran onto last year, is a contender, got a head like a bucket, big crease between his ears, ears on the side of his head, chest well below his elbows!

    i figure if the hogs keep spreading like they are u will have some in ohio before you no it.I posted a picture of 7 little one's we caught all at the same time on the hogs topic.The down side is the damage they cause and if u put out corn for the deer an turkey they get it.Gonna make some tube feeders for the deer an put um high enuff where the hogs cant get to it.This state has made it legal to kill them at will.

    that is a good looking tom.its only about a month away here.as nice as the weather is today it really gets me to thinking about the spring season.but back to late winter weather after today.This time of year is always bitter sweet winter almost over but the threat of tornado's right behind it.

    Will do, had to move things a bit but it was because of how I wanted the bow to ride, I needed to split the difference between what the bow needs and what the rifles need. Between the racks, I've got a gps mount, and in the center is a rack/cradle for one of those million power lights, for going in early or coming out, I don't want a narrow beam of light I can ride out of, but a big wash of light so I can see the turn or hole.. The first thing that happens when you put your bow on the handlebars is now you need a E brake, you've changed the balance of the bike so you'll need shock cord, go see Quest Outfitters
    http://questoutfitters.com/
    and get you some, nice folks here, quick and cheap. As you can see, get plenty, couple of yds, 1/8- 5/32. You can make the crisscross cradles to lay your bow on with the rest Cut 2 1 foot pieces, melt nice round ball on the ends, tie an overhand knot, leaving about 2.5-3" loop. put them on just past the grips, so they'll stay there, I hook mine over the wing nut of the rack bolt. But might want to make a few extra, in case. Now you have E brakes. Here my view whlie riding, minus the side of the outbuilding.

    Thanks.. it was my 1st an every much my sons kill.. He had just come of a stalk on a bird that could have just as easy been that one pictured.. but you know how them ole toms are, put the slip on rhino via a hole under the fence. My Boy was hot, tired an ready for lunch at the end of a long season (that he sat in pouring rain more then once with out a complant..) bird in pic sounded off on the Grassy knoll.. I said well there you go, "go get him"
    An that boy of mine said no dad "you take him"... if not for the excitment of the hunt I beleave I would have... very proud moment I will never forget

    Mine aren't all that wide, they're a standard set of 'Specialized' ( my bike manufacturer ) handle bars, what I did, was to pull the grip off, cut 3/4" off of them, and mounted the racks in the missing grip area. If I was doing it again, I'd just make 3/4" extensions for the grips, a wood dowel driven into the handle bars, and will be doing that soon anyway, as my big paw is right up aginst the bow rack post. Something you do need to think about is a rear fender of some sort, those semi aggersive tires throw all sorts of road grime right on top of the front derailer. Post some pics of your ride when you can. Would love to see it.

    I will try to post some pics.My gear shifters are on the inside of the grip so i dont think i can move them out.I'll focus more on that when i can ride it at least 3 miles without stoping.LOL.I did get my sights sighted in an i love um.just turn the dial an there it is,no 3 to 5 pins bluring up my vision.Buddy of mine did bring up a good point though,what r u gonna do if u need to adjust them after ur at full draw.I said guess just aim high.I was gonna get another set for my axe 6 but i have a really good set of 3 pin sights for it and as fast as it is i think setting the top 2 pins for 20 an 40 yards will work just as well.

    My shifters are too, I removed grip to make room for the rack mount, but should have extened the bar by inserting a piece of proper sized dowel.That depends entirly how far he moved, if it enough that you need to readjust, might be time to rethink shot. Don't like shooting at jumpy gritters, perfer them with their noses in the grub. But you're talking turkey heads, right? Unless its more than 5 yds, I wouldn't worry.
