Tip from Tex! (he just reminded me): "You can't eat the spurs"

Big fun with Tex the last couple mornings of his turkey season ... some great stories will be retold tonight ...

When multiple opportunities somehow pass by, Tex decided 1 of 3 Jakes looked yummy.

Congrats to both of you. Great to Tex still hunting with you. My dad doesn't turkey hunt but we always gun deer hunt together. I ended up taking a nice jake on my property, near shawano lake on day 5 of my hunt on Monday. Only saw one hen before that.

You can't beat the memories made! Hunting and fishing with family and friends will make lots of stories!

Nice bird, way to go Tex

Congratulations tex

Way to go Tex! Pete it's great seeing you two spending time together doing what you love to do. Good luck for the opener this weekend!

Tex is the man!

Spurs, antlers, and beards Cant eat any of them. Way to go Tex 🎊

Congratulations to Tex, 100% right....can’t eat the spursπŸ‘

Pete, I have an Evinrude 150 Etec does Amsoil make a synthetic oil that would replace the XD 100 oil they have us running?

Good luck this weekend

πŸ‘

Toothless critter day. Hope catchin' 'em ... and please share pics.

Spring line-up of my favorite cranks - always backed up by a variety of jig n plastic (Tex covers the minnows); if haven't tried really heavy weeds for more negative fish - it can really work and weed(wood)less jigs are helpful; Eagle Claw has that covered... did very well on Savage Gear's Ned Minnow in FL... looking like will be hard on the up north fishes too.

Since it's #MuskieMonday here's a coming attraction: first muskie of the season from a few years back.

While this is a harsher-than-normal case, it's amazing how many nasty licks some of these fish take during the spawn.

Glad to see Tex on your Adventure. Oh and NICE FISH

That is pretty incredible. Wonder how long it will take for it to heal up. Great fish looks huge. Hope you make some more YouTube videos.

I’m going to target some first season Muskie next weekend

Would like to boat 1 like that anytime during N.Y. Musky season.

Great picture!πŸ‘πŸŽ£

Holy cow! You should have seen the other fish!! 🀣

Beautiful fish!

Very nice .

It's amazing how they look after the spawn!

Good netman Tex!πŸ˜€

That's a nice one wow

Start of our season. 46

Delicious

That guy behind you is a Musky Fishing Stud, nice fish Pete!!!

Awesome πŸ‘

That’s a respectable musky nice did you or did Tex catch it

Wow

πŸ‘

Caught this beauty while casting for pike the other day. Biggest one so far. Absolute tank.

My question is how protective really is the “protective” slime everyone freaks out about. You’d think they’d all be dead after they go through spawning

34 inch pike french creek Waterford PA. Right before release.

TEX never gets older.

The more time you spend in the woods or on water - the more cool things happen! Simple facts.

While turkey hunting a few days ago I called in Boo Boo. Kinda funny when compare it's size to the decoy. Definitely born last spring. No Momma sightings.

This happened to you? WOW!

Your great at calling them in. Once I had Momma and her 4 cubs come in and lay next to the decoys. I had to yell at them when one went for the decoy. I now have 4 puncture marks in the Jake πŸ˜†

Had one up on my deck the other night. Offered him a beer but o guess he wasn’t feeling sociable. Next time I’ll offer Jim Beam.

He needs help in cooking it!

He's like... "This is WAY too easy. Something's not right."

Way cool pete!!

You know Yogi wasn't to far off!!! Probably wasn't to happy no picnic basket didn't come back!!

That’s awesome, I’ll take that over a Turkey any day

Sweet nice Teddy BearπŸ˜€

That's awesome you were able to capture that

Pretty cool

Boo boo was expecting a picnic basket !!

Pretty neat

Never fails! I had 12 turkeys roosted in a tree above my deer blind on opening day of deer season last fall!

Pretty neat

That ain't no turkey sammich!πŸ˜‚πŸ€£

That’s a cool video Pete!

Good eating size.

So cool

I can’t believe that turkey stayed so calm !

Did he find the “Picnic Basket” lol

Nice video.Was told they got bad eye sight.Don't look that way there.πŸ’―πŸ˜Ž

Hey boo boo, wanna hit some pick a nick baskets!

Saturday quiz - request for assistance...

Walleye opener showing up in a week here in WI

... My bride Esther announced a new addition to the Maina farm/family will be arriving in approximately 2 months. A male Standard Poodle (hope fetches ducks unlike Mollie). So we need a good name that starts with an "M" to match Mollie and Moses.

Good M doggies names?

Marq. After all, he is French! French name for a French boy! Pretty sure that he’ll be on the mark!

Good lookin kids!! We have three also.. usually only take one at a time fishing with me.. they have to take turns

Don’t make them sound too similar or you will have two dogs responding to the same name like our Madi and Millie.

Moxi 🎣 To hit the walleye trail. Mollie, Moses and Moxi

Maniac! Mollie, Moses! Come! Now sit...good boy!

Millhouse

Musky...duh...lol

Mop-head? Mops,

Max is a pretty Grade A name. I might be biased though 😬😬

Midori

Maggie

Macho

Mongo

Musky?

Maggie.

Monte, Manfred (manny), major, minnow, mike, Marty and Milton. Kinda looks like a Monte tho. Good luck but Esther already has it picked and you know it.. πŸ˜‚

Move Over...because I have a feeling you're going to be saying it a lot anyway from looking at the pictures..lol. Moxie would be good too.

Marauder {Tuffy Marauder is probably copyrighted } πŸ˜‚

"Mitch", then when you have puppies, you can call them,,,,, "Sons of Mitches".

I think u hav to bring the dog home, give it a few days, then try to match the name to its personality. Choose one of the hundreds of names that have been suggested lol..

I think Musky is a given.

Moose!

Marley but it maybe a girl name!😁

Mandrake if he's going to be a duck hunter

"Uncle Mark" after me... LOL .:D I'm still looking for the right male lab, gonna name him Max. After the the character in the movie grumpy old men.
