Thread: Annual traditions

  1. #1

    Default Annual traditions

    Every year starting January 1st I start reading my top 3 turkey books. The Tenth Legion is first,then The Old Pro Turkey Hunter, Then Turkey Hunting a One Man Game. By the time I'm done with those the fever is so hot I can't hardly stand it. Anybody else have any annual traditions building up to the greatest season of the year?

    my tradition is getting ready via the midwest turkey call catalog. i am too stingy to buy much but i love that catalog.

    brad -if you will add Earl Grove's book "Tomfoolery 2000" to your reading you really will be ready. Stories galore and the best how to book ever written on the sport.

    trust me- i have them all.

    one thing that i never do is clean out the "game bag" of my turkey vest, not sure why, just kinda like knowing a lil piece of everywhere i have been is still with me, at some point you can't remember all of it, yes there is a 2'' layer of pine needles, leaves, bark, dried grass and a feather or two and its bad to stick to the condensation on my water bottle but i don't mind, good lord willing i'll get to add a little more to it

    I have two more newer books to recommend for the list - "East of the Slash" (Wineman) and "Bad Birds" (Jim Spencer).

    Is East of the slash available? I have Bad Birds and it is a good read.

    Turkey Hunting With Charlie Elliott is another old-school classic that I have enjoyed.
