It’s Never Too Late To Start Turkey Hunting!
On April 11, Dan Justice took his first wild turkey. Many other hunters did the same on opening day. However, Justice is 93 years old. He never would have been able to accomplish his achievement without the help of his grandson, Jeremy Owens.
I put together this clickable map of links to each state’s website that includes the dates of their turkey season. Some of the links will require you to scroll or look around for the dates, but the information is there. A couple of states haven’t set their dates yet, so check back for updates.

With game camera viewers starting at around $50, why would you want to add one more expensive device to your hunting pack when you probably already have a great viewing device in your pocket. Smart phones today are so powerful and have multiple uses why not use them to view those deer pictures from your game camera. I also like to use my Nexus 7 when I am out checking trail cameras. It works really well because of the larger screen. The app that I really like is Nexus Media Importer and the free version Nexus Photo Viewer. I have created this video on how to use it and some setting changes that I made.
This app allows you not only view the photos, but to also import them to your device and gives you the option to share them. This is a really nice feature because it gives you the ability to save the pictures that you want and then put the card back into the camera, format it, and you are back in business taking more pictures.
This app only allows you to view the photos which is nice, but I wanted the extra features.
You will need a couple pieces of hardware to make this all work.
I found this cool device that eliminates the separate OTG cable so you only have to deal with one piece.

If you have ever been hunting ducks in a pair of leaking waders on a cold winter morning you know why I am writing this. Last year, I was invited to hunt wood ducks in a local pond. It was the coldest morning of the year, about 17 degrees, if I remember correctly. That is beyond cold for South Carolina, we southerners just aren’t use to that kind of cold. I made my way into the pond through the dark, trying not to fall or dip water into the top of my waders. When I reached a point where the water came up to my waist I felt the sharp sting of the icy water as it made its way through a pin hole in the crotch of my 10 year old waders. There are no words to describe the sounds that come out of a man during this sudden, unexpected rush of cold water. It’s somewhere between a squeal and a howl, but not enough oxygen to accomplish either. After the hunt was over, the first thing I wanted to do was patch those holes. Right after I got out of the water, I looked at my pants to see where I was wet. This is the best time to make note of exactly where the leak is coming from. Some leaks come from small holes and the only way to find them is to get in the water. Then you need to let your waders dry out so you can start the repair process. I really like to use AquaSeal. It is relatively easy to use and once it has cured it forms a rubberized, flexible seal over the damaged area. It works equally well on tears and pin hole type leaks.
AquaSeal is sold with or without Cortol-240
Be sure to store the remaining AqualSeal in your freezer for future repairs. This will keep it from hardening.
