Hey vermonster13 your as slow at finishing your huning story as I was getting my part of the mojo bag to you. How about finishing the story?

Ok Galen. To much time reading Charlie's stories has rubbed off on me a little. LOL


So my time with Hope was a little shorter than I like and if not for Claudia's generosity I may not have got my turn, so thank you again Claudia.

So the last day I had Hope I only had an hour to walk her. I needed to get her in the mail for an appointment she needed to make before she could continue onto Ohio. I dropped my boy off at preschool and headed for my spot. I had already filled out the log saying how much I enjoyed my time with her and that I hadn't filled any tags with her. My mistake, but we'll get there.

I went into the oak ridge that was bordered by some hemlocks and spruce that the turkeys had been roosting in and some deer had been bedding in. At the bottom of the ridge is the farmers house garden that had a half acre of sweet corn still standing in it that he leaves for the deer and birds. So this area sees a lot of action.

I saw a few does feeding across the ridge, but the wind was all wrong to try to stalk them in my limited time. Just then a flock of about thirty birds trucked up out of the thicket that borders the field and jumped the fence to the posted pasture. I figured that I was done and I needed to get the bow in the mail soon and pick up my boy.

So I worked back across the ridge to where my truck was parked and wasn't 30 yards away when I heard the familiar keeing of a bird thats lost the flock. Checked my watch, I had maybe 30 minutes leeway. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm

It sounded like the bird was down a trail that the deer used to my right that let them check the corn out before they committed to going into the garden. The open spot is choked with those little red berried thorn bushes. But if I turned and went straight down the hill and cut into the garden I could maybe catch this bird going into the garden trying to catch up with the flock in the pasture. Looked at my watch again, not enough time. I would have to give up and send Hope on without adding to her mojo it seemed. I took the trail to the left that broke over the ridge to the tractor path my truck was parked on that lead down to the garden/orchard.

Well I wasn't in hunting mode so much as getting out of the woods mode at this point. So I was moving up the trail at a pretty good clip when it happened. A single jake steps on the path right were it meets the tractor path about 30 yards in front of me. Did I tell you guys how well Hope shoots for me?

The Zwickey Delta broadhead passed through exactly the way it was set up too. Just a little fletch left showing on the near side of the bird. He piled up on the spot and I only needed to carry him 20 yards to the truck. it was a beautiful thing. He weighted a little shy of 19 pounds. A quick run to the check in station and a drop off of the bird at the inlaws house who weren't home at the time. Figured I'd get some pictures when I got back from the Post office and picking up my Jake. Sent Hope on her way with a log book not quite filled out right and picked up Jake.

Drove back up to the inlaws to get some pictures and in the hour I wasn't there they had come home and my father-in-law already had the bird done up for cooking! So no pictures but a last second addition of a feather for the Mojo Bag and a great respect for Mark Horne's bows.

That Bush Bow can flat out shoot. Farthest shot on a turkey I've ever taken and it went as well as I could have ever hoped.

My chapter is done, hopefully Chad will add his soon. Best of luck Chad.

The Hornes are real nice people. The Brush Bow is a real good length for hunting our thick eastern woods too. At $475 for the standard model it's a real steal especially when you see the price of so many of the mass production bows now. I have a feeling the orders for it are going to be going up soon.
