Ballad of a Turkey Hunter Book in PDF, Epub and Kindle

Turkey hunting is different. The humbling of nature, found only in the season of spring, is universally understood by those who hunt wild turkeys with a burning passion. There is an associated obsession, within the souls of turkey hunters, that is distinctly different than the mindset of those pursuing deer, duck, or any other realm of wild game. This book was written to celebrate, acknowledge, and ultimately pay respect to those who embrace the sounds, feelings, and appreciations that are experienced while chasing these birds. Through a series of stories, lessons learned the hard way, and a few unfortunate situations, you will find both helpful tips and entertainment from the author's outlook toward spring turkey season as he enlightens upon his journey. Some advice and how to is also provided for turkey calling, setup strategies, camouflage patterns, roosted gobblers, and more. Through memories complied from traveling across the southeastern and central states of the US, from his hometown in Mississippi, the author seeks to cure an addiction to the outdoor lifestyle, while providing a unique understanding to the heritage, history, and fulfillment found within the swamp bottoms of public land hunting areas. Each individual chapter is a new journey while unfolding how the mind of a turkey hunter processes the spring woods and the perceptions that eventually lead the author to create what is now known as Spring Legion.

The Old Pro Turkey Hunter Book in PDF, Epub and Kindle

During his life, Gene Nunnery was recognized as a master turkey hunter and an artisan who crafted unique, almost irresistible turkey calls. In The Old Pro Turkey Hunter, the vaunted sportsman shares over fifty years of personal experience in Mississippi and surrounding states, along with the decades-old wisdom of the huntsmen who taught him. Throughout the book, his stories make clear that turkey hunting is more than just killing the bird--it is about matching wits with a wild and savvy adversary. As Nunnery explains, "To me that's what it's all about: finding a wise old gobbler who will test your skill as a turkey hunter." Through his stories, Nunnery reveals that the true reward for successful turkey hunting lies in winning the contest, not necessarily exterminating the foe. Real sportsmen know that every now and then the turkey should and will elude the hunter. As Nunnery looks back on his extensive career, he analyzes vast differences in practice, old and new. The shift, he decides, came during his last twenty years on the hunt, and that difference has only increased in the decades since this book was originally published. Michael O. Giles, Bass Pro staff team member, master turkey hunter, and award-winning outdoors writer and author of Passion of the Wild, writes a new foreword that brings the practice of turkey hunting into the present day. Filled with a tested mixture of common sense and specific examples of how master turkey hunters honor their harvest and heritage, The Old Pro Turkey Hunter is the perfect companion for the novice or the adept.

The Edification of a Turkey Hunter Book in PDF, Epub and Kindle

The Edification of a Turkey Hunter By: Butch Barnes Butch didn’t start turkey hunting until he met Tommy Nelson, his father- in-law to be, in 1968. Mr. Nelson was both a passionate turkey hunter and a great story teller. His passing in 1997 caused Butch to reflect on his own experiences in the “turkey woods” over the preceding four decades, and he decided to share them. This book, however, is about more than just the pursuit and kill. Along the way, Butch discovered more about himself and the hunting experience than he learned about turkeys. His experiences served as a classroom for growing not only his calling and hunting skills, they also grew his Christian faith, seeing how God provided this great sport while also giving us the responsibility to be His steward of this great game bird and its habitat. It’s a story that will appeal to novice and veteran, and hopefully draw others to take to the field and experience the thrills of pursuing this noble bird.

Tenth Legion Book in PDF, Epub and Kindle

Tenth Legion has long been considered the greatest - and most hilarious - book on turkey hunting. Yet until now it was only available in a privately published edition. Many people who hunt turkeys do so with an attention to detail, a regard for strategy, tactics, and operations, and a disregard for personal comfort and convenience that ranks second only to war. As for all cultists, it never occurs to them that they may be anachronisms. Supremely unconscious of the rest of the world, blind and deaf to logic and reason, they walk along their different roads in step to the music of their different drums.

With step-by-step instructions and detailed photographs and illustrations, this book provides proven information for achieving the best of both those worlds. Everything is discussed from choosing a sporting breed (retriever or pointer), to basic family-friendly obedience commands, to introducing the dog to the sound of a gun, competing in field trials and hunt tests, using an electronic collar, and keeping your sporting dog happy and healthy.

Memories of Spring Book in PDF, Epub and Kindle

For turkey hunters the arrival of spring is anxiously anticipated. Redbud and dogwood blossoms color winter-weary woods and thunderous wild turkey gobbles greet the dawn. In all of hunting, there is nothing quite like the relationship between a turkey gobbler and a turkey hunter. It's a connection that's difficult to explain and nearly impossible to understand, unless you're a turkey hunter. Author, Ron Jolly, has spent nearly six decades hunting wild turkeys with gun and camera, developing a unique perspective on the relationship and the passion that drives turkey hunters. Memories of Spring is a collection of stories written about memorable turkeys, people and experiences that shaped the author and molded him into one of America's most respected turkey hunting experts. Read the inspiring story of a hunter who rises above his physical limitations to be successful, then types his version of the story using a pencil held in his teeth. The book features tales of gobblers that earned nicknames like Devil Turkey, Rude Robert and Pencil Beard. Learn the difference between Character Turkeys and Grudge Turkeys, those frustratingly wary gobblers that achieve such lofty status by humiliating hunters. Tes Randle Jolly's award winning photography illustrates Memories of Spring, capturing the essence and beauty of the wild turkey, complimenting the author's work in this sure-to-be classic book. About The Author Louisiana born, Ron Jolly's passion for everything turkey began as a boy when his father taught him the do's and don'ts of hunting wild turkeys. Since those early years he has traveled the country hunting, videoing and photographing them. He produced 20 feature turkey hunting videos from hunts in over 20 states. In 1988 Jolly became the producer for The Truth Video Series by Primos with credits for The Truth About Spring Turkey Hunting, Volumes 2-8. It was during those years Jolly first began sharing his turkey hunting passion, knowledge and expertise through writing. A master storyteller, his award winning articles appear in major outdoor and hunting publications in print and online. Jolly's entertaining writing style puts his readers right alongside him on hunts to experience the thrills, frustrations, successes and failures. The author's deep love and respect for America's grand bird and ability to spin a memorable hunting tale ensure Memories of Spring will be an entertaining and thoughtful read. Recently, the author was awarded the high honor of induction into the National Wild Turkey Federations's Grand National Hall of Fame. The February 15, 2020 ceremony will take place in Nashville, TN during the annual NWTF Convention.

Ballad of the Whiskey Robber Book in PDF, Epub and Kindle

DESCRIPTION: Elmore Leonard meets Franz Kafka in the wild, improbably true story of the legendary outlaw of Budapest. Attila Ambrus was a gentleman thief, a sort of Cary Grant--if only Grant came from Transylvania, was a terrible professional hockey goalkeeper, and preferred women in leopard-skin hot pants. During the 1990s, while playing for the biggest hockey team in Budapest, Ambrus took up bank robbery to make ends meet. Arrayed against him was perhaps the most incompetent team of crime investigators the Eastern Bloc had ever seen: a robbery chief who had learned how to be a detective by watching dubbed Columbo episodes; a forensics man who wore top hat and tails on the job; and a driver so inept he was known only by a Hungarian word that translates to Mound of Ass-Head. BALLAD OF THE WHISKEY ROBBER is the completely bizarre and hysterical story of the crime spree that made a nobody into a somebody, and told a forlorn nation that sometimes the brightest stars come from the blackest holes. Like The Professor and the Madman and The Orchid Thief, Julian Rubinsteins bizarre crime story is so odd and so wicked that it is completely irresistible.

Turkey Tails and Tales from Across the USA Book in PDF, Epub and Kindle

This book is a collection of stories written by one of America's most traveled and experienced turkey hunters; a man who has taken multiple toms from 49 states. Such a feat didn't come easily, so you might expect these pages to fairly drip with wise words of wisdom and sage advice on how to hunt those wily, elusive birds?and they do. However, "Doc" Weddle didn't write an instruction manual. Instead, he takes the reader on a trip down memory lane to recall exciting hunts which helped shape him into becoming the true "Turkey Man" that he is today. Novice or veteran readers alike will undoubtedly gain valuable knowledge here, but the author is first and foremost a storyteller, and he has written this book simply to entertain his audience in a manner reminiscent of outdoorsmen standing around campfires and sharing the colorful details of their hunts with cohorts and companions.The tales told between these covers will propel the reader across every geological region of the United States; from the hot, humid, jungle habitat of southern Florida, to the arid, cactus-laden plains of the desert southwest, and right on up into the snow-capped mountain states?plus, nearly everywhere else, in between! Whether Doc is chasing after the Rio Grande, Osceola, Eastern, or Merriam's subspecies, these accounts are bound to strike a chord with fellow turkey hunters, for they come straight from the heart of a man who has literally designed a life around hunting turkeys all spring long, and wherever he chooses to go. Additionally, there is an element of awe factor involved here, since just about every one of these tales take place on public lands. Few people would be willing to endure the hardships inherent in following such a difficult path, but our author prides himself on persevering through adverse conditions, and excelling in tough environments where others tread lightly, if at all. The reality is that he's been doing this very thing for over three decades, and never returns home without new and exciting stories to tell. His cooler usually contains fresh turkey meat, as well.
