Welcome back to the new NEFF. Take a break from Twitter and Facebook. You don't go to Dicks for your fly fishing gear, you go to your local fly fishing store. Enjoy!

What type of bird is this?

Strangest thing in my neck of the woods... It's the talk of the town! Almost like seeing a moose walking through your back yard in NYC.

So is this a Turkey or a Pheasant? I'm going with pheasant but I don't know.

That is most definitely a Beetle......otherwise know as a Turkey......
Female Turkey......very strong fliers....almost became the national bird.....it would have been if Ben Franklin had his way.....

Ohh the flies you could have tied from him. Next time MacFLy flies in for a visit hit him over the head with a shovel and take some tail and wing feathers.

Long time...
Speaking of birds, are you still giving upstate grouse hell?
They seem to be holding their own up my way... noticing an uptick in the numbers of Timberdoodles though.

Hey Alpaca Man, yep the grouse population was up a bit and I did have some very good days. How are your animals doing. How many crias are you expecting this spring? Let me know if you want me to put a dent in your coyote population.

I think we're expecting 20 this year. We are getting more selective. :)
How long have you been hunting coyotes? What's your preferred method?
No shortage of coyotes in my neighborhood...

And...Boom goes the dynamite.

What is the law, and preferred method, in Pennsyltucky? In NJ you can now use a rifle, as long as its less than .223, so you can basically hunt with an AR, but with no more than 3 rounds. Call them in with a wounded rabbit call. On your property it also looks like you can play the long game.

Not necessarily the same thing...

What does the law allow in terms of firearms? As far as the how, well it ain't rocket science with coyotes. Either call them in, or sit patiently on your deck, have a snack, and wait for one to appear. Looks like you've got some pretty good sight-lines based on your avatar pic.
