    From my front porch I can see an old buck rub from before I built, can hear partridge drumming and early morning toms gobbling. Three hundred feet in front of my house is a stream with small native brook trout and the occasional duck will set down there. Is anyone else so fortunate or did the sun finally shine on this dogs a$$?

      The sun is shining on both of us. Ibid on the gobblers, and the fishing pond is two hundred yards down the hollow. I killed my biggest boar hog while I was standing on my front porch and have had to declare a sanctuary for deer within three hundred yards because so many big bucks show up that it wouldn't be fair to shoot them from the house. We don't have partridge down here, but bob-whites (quail) whistle all summer, and we don't have trout, but the kids love catching crawfish in the stream just down the hill. Redbuds and dogwoods celebrate the spring and the best music in the world is the wind through the pines all around. God is good, life is bountiful. I will be forever grateful that my father loved turkey hunting so much that he bought that old hilly, gullied, farmed out, cut-over, worthless, scrub hardwood land back in the forties so he'd have his own place to chase turkeys. I continue the tradition.

              P-H-W, that's called "blessings".

                You made me think a bit as well. I can usually hear gobblers from my yard, be in a tree stand almost within sight of the house, my little ramp patch behind the house is doing well, and I'll soon gather enough dandelion bloom from my yard for a turn of dandelion wine. I don't believe in good fortune, I believe in His blessings.

                  Mr. Double Ought 7 I couldn't agree with you more. Our earthly blessings, although great, do not hold a candle to what God has been so gracious to give us undeserving lads. I cannot wait to share a turkey blind or deer stand with fellas like you where the streets are paved with gold. But for now, my little peice of paradise will be just fine.

                      I watch turkeys, deer, geese, wood ducks and mallards and bald eagles and osprey from my back deck. My beaver pond is full of large mouths and pickerel, with native brookies below the damn. The timberdoodles and partridge are just a bonus. P-h-w this is the way to live.

                        I put up three bird feeders hanging out back for my wife to enjoy. We had a second floor enclosed patio build last year in the back of our house. It’s awesome to drink my morning coffee while reading the paper in my recliner. I also like the bird feeders because it is neat to see the different species of birds flying in to eat.
                        The birds are a little messy and they drop seeds on the ground. The deer and turkeys come in to eat under the feeders. I love hearing the Toms gobbling in the morning and the crows raising holy hell.

                            I didn't wait five minutes and that is why I got the double post.
                            Sorry

                              Sounds like you are living the dream all right. You have made more than a few of us jealous.

                                There is no doubt that a .30-06 Spgfld is more than adequate to actually slay a whitetail.
