    Ok, thats funny. Sadly it is a fairly common sight around here and SC though... of course, the coke part is not always in the equation.

    Hunting turkey is not as easy as you might think. Their brains may be small, but they use every neuron, unlike your average TSA clerk.

    Oh, and I learned from experience that .177 is not enough. :D Damn gobbler shook off a head shot and walked away.

    Agreed, we need to increase the deer season length as well, they are reaching almost critical mass over population at this point. I have friends that have hit multiple deer this past 12 months, in heavily populated areas, and some of the farmers are having serious problems with crop damage.

    As for caliber, I always used shotties, nothing smaller than a 20 gauge, of course that means you have to be able to stalk fairly well, or call really well.

    Your tactics are poor, and hardly sporting. You need to go out in teams. One at the wheel and one on the passenger side with a Louisville Slugger. It's as challenging as hitting mile markers with pony bottles at 45 mph and less likely to enrage the constabulary than nailing mailboxes.

    We do need to cull the herds of deer. It's been a mild winter in VA and they've got plenty of forage, but disease is going to do a number on them if they become any more numerous. I find that when the deer forage regularly in my yard we have a tick problem. That, and they love to strip the leaves off my cherry trees in the Spring and chew the fruiting spurs off apple, quince and pear trees in the Fall. They devastate orchard stock.
