Why Decoys are so important while turkey hunting by Ben G

PrintE-mail

A few days a go as I was day dreaming about turkey hunting I asked myself what would turkey hunting be like with out a decoy. After pondering it for a while I realized how difficult would be to actually get a Tom in close enough to shoot with out a decoy. With that said I am going to discuss why a decoy can be very important to turkey hunters.

As you may already know turkeys can see very well, so by placing a decoy out in front of you it brings the attention of the turkey to the decoy and away from you (the hunter). This will typically allow a hunter to bring their gun up into shooting position with out being noticed.

Turkeys also will be looking to associate something with hunter’s turkey calls. If a Tom is responding to a turkey call and coming in closer to your location and you don’t have a decoy he may get confused or suspicious. When a Tom becomes,  confused or suspicious he will either just stay put and wait for the hen or just simply turn around and walk away looking for other hens.

Wakeup Call: Risk Appetite Stronger On German Bunds Yield Going Higher

German Bunds yield broke the monumental 3.09% level and was strongly rejected yesterday. That indicates a strong risk-willingness, which is also reflected by credit spreads and corporate CDS prices.

Calendar

Economic Data Releases
Country Time (GMT) Name Saxo Consensus Prior
CA 11:00 CPI / Core CPI MoM (FEB) 0.3% / 0.3% 0.3% / 0.1%
CA 12:30 Retail Sales / ex. Autos MoM (JAN) 0.6% / 0.5% 0.4% / 0.4%

What's going on?

The German constitutional court was saying that a Greek bail-out might violate the 'no bail-out' clause in the EU rules and therefore be illegal. German Bunds yield broke the monumental 3.09% level and was strongly rejected yesterday. That indicates a strong risk-willingness, which is also reflected by credit spreads and corporate CDS prices.

Not a lot of data today, so a lot of focus on Greece and the EUR, which is likely to continue underperforming the rest of the European currencies. Gold not affected.

Sunbelt Free Kicks Program Gives More Than $20,000 to Support Youth Soccer
The company is pleased to announce that it has given more than $20,000 in donations and prizes to players and soccer clubs so far.
Soccer is an expensive sport to play, and Sunbelt is helping us, and all the clubs affiliated with US Youth Soccer, keep the cost down for kids. So every little bit helps.
Collegedale, TN (Vocus/ ) March 19, 2010 -- Six months ago, Sunbelt launched its Free Kicks program in an effort to help US Youth Soccer players and their families and friends raise money for soccer equipment, supplies and other club expenses. Today, the company is pleased to announce that it has given more than $20,000 in donations and prizes to players and soccer clubs so far.
According to Jeff Badger, Sunbelt brand manager, Sunbelt has awarded six soccer clubs $1,000 each through its monthly drawing, including February winner, St. Roberts Soccer Club of Omaha, Neb. In addition to the monthly winners, Monona Grove Soccer Club of Madison, Wis. was recently selected as the first $2,500 winner through the programs semi-annual drawing. Plus, Sunbelt is sending cash payments from $10 to $100 to more than 700 soccer clubs that have participated in Free Kicks across the country.
Participants in the Sunbelt Free Kicks program earn cash for their soccer clubs by going online to SunbeltFreeKicks.com and entering codes located on specially marked box tops of Sunbelt granola bars and Sunbelt fruit and grain bars. In addition to the money clubs earn from entering the codes, they are also automatically entered into monthly and semi-annual cash drawings.
What Sunbelt is doing through its Free Kicks program and sponsorship of US Youth Soccer is extremely important for the future of soccer, especially at the youth level, said Mark Casasanto, whose South Philadelphia Soccer Club (SPSC) won $1,000. Soccer is an expensive sport to play, and Sunbelt is helping us, and all the clubs affiliated with US Youth Soccer, keep the cost down for kids. So every little bit helps.
Scott Dane, executive director of the Capital Area Soccer League (CASL), can also attest to the importance of the Free Kicks program. We put our $1,000 donation into a financial aid fund. Lansing's economy has been devastated, and the need for financial assistance has grown tremendously. $1,000 gives approximately 15 players the opportunity to participate in our league at no cost.
As the official granola snack of US Youth Soccer, Sunbelt is committed to helping soccer clubs across the country like CASL and SPSC make soccer available to players at all levels, and it will continue to do so through its sponsorship and Free Kicks program.
US Youth Soccer is very excited to see our partner, Sunbelt, actively engaging in the US Youth Soccer community with their Sunbelt Free Kicks program, which offers great member benefits through cash giveaways, great individual prizes and additional cash prizes, said Jim Cosgrove, executive director for US Youth Soccer.
Its great to see how far the Sunbelt Free Kicks loyalty program has spread after only six months, said Badger. Nutrition and physical fitness are cornerstones of Sunbelt, and sponsoring US Youth Soccer is a great way to demonstrate our commitment in these areas.

Fisher Auction and Cushman & Wakefield Arrange $25.9 Million Bulk Sale Auction of 165 New Condominium Units in Downtown Orlando
The Vue at Lake Eola in downtown Orlando, Florida under contract for $25.9 Million Our combined marketing efforts resulted in nine qualified bidders in the live auction and we were thrilled with the results.
Once we have our single Web site, we will quickly move to use the MEDSEEK risk assessment tools to build service line awareness and help our patients take a more wellness-focused approach to their own health care.
Orlando, FL March 19, 2010 -- Fisher Auction Company and Cushman & Wakefield today announced the completion of a bulk sale auction of 165 new condominium units within The Vue at Lake Eola, a premier brand new condominium development in Downtown Orlando.

The Vue at Lake Eola was a prize piece of real estate, said Lamar Fisher, President and CEO of Fisher Auction Co., Inc. Bidders had to submit a signed non-contingency contract of no less than $20 million just to be qualified to participate in the live auction. Our combined marketing efforts resulted in nine qualified bidders in the live auction and we were thrilled with the results.
Orlando-based brokerage professionals Jay Ballard and Ken Delvillar, senior director and director, respectively, of Cushman & Wakefields Apartment Brokerage Services Group, handled the marketing and sale of the units along with Fisher Auction Co. According to Mr. Ballard, the process needed to be accomplished within a short 60 day timeframe. We had an expert team in place to put together our due diligence package, conduct tours and help keep our potential bidders informed, Mr. Ballard said.
The Fisher Auction and Cushman & Wakefield team are not new to handling the targeted marketing of this type of real estate. They have successfully handled similar properties and have become the new experts of fractured condo auctions.
We had over 250 groups sign confidentiality agreements on this property and over 50 potential buying groups conduct property tours, said Mr. Ballard. We had inquiries from throughout the U.S. and over 11 countries truly a superior response to our marketing plan. Our buyer ultimately came from out of the country and we were able to achieve 104 percent of fair market value for the Bankruptcy Court. In this real estate market, that is outstanding.

The DePauw University Conservation Club was recently established to provide a community for students who share similar interests in conservation and nature. The DePauw University Conservation Club allows its members to learn more about conservation and provide direct results to local, state, and national projects to preserve and improve land. We believe that sharing the North American Conservation Model both in intellectual conversations and hands on work on the ground and in the field will benefit our members and allow them to carry on their passions of conservation into the world. We strive to raise private revenue through various fundraising efforts in order to complete the projects we take on locally to make a difference in our community. We would also like to create a yearly event to spread the world of conservation into our local community through a youth outreach program, and a one day introduction to wildlife, habitat, and the benefits of spending time in the outdoors. We believe that land and wildlife are both precious resource that need to be conserved and managed. We are excited to share our message with the rest of the conservation community, as well as with the rest of the world. The land and its resources are the source of our passions; we pledge to do whatever we can to help keep them thriving.

As founder of the DePauw University Conservation Club, I fully encourage all folks of the younger generation to step up and make a difference...


 
 

The Ultimate Sportsman by Trevor Simmons

While attending the Greater Virginia Big game and Sport Show I got the chance to meet one extordinary fellow sportsman. This man was Mr. Gary Arrington and boy if he’s not what the sport of hunting and conservation is all about I don’t know who is. As a NWTF Region Director,   special projects manager for hunters for the hungry, and devoted family man Gary does it all. From chasing toms and bucks to moderating turkey calling contest you can find him hanging around.


Gary did not just fall into all this responsibility right off the bat it took years of hard work and determination. After 14 years as a Conservation Game Warden and years of being in the woods he has acquired years of experience which shows in every word as he speaks about the outdoors. As a member of the QDMA, NRA, NWTF, and hunters for the hungry, Gary is constantly on the go to help promote these wonderful groups. His passion for hunting is equally matched with his passion for God and through all the works he does for this great sport he keeps God the center of it all.


He thanks his dad most for the opportunity to hunt. Though he said his biggest influence came from Bob Kerride who took him on his first hunting trip and taught him how to hunt. Now, Gary is giving back what he can in return for all he has been blessed with. He said kids are the future of hunting and “The greatest feather in the hat for hunting.” He would love to see more kids grow in the outdoors as well as Hunters for the Hungry so we can keep providing for people for years to come. With kids as our future hunters he wants to educate them on how much their donations will help people in need.


He hopes to continue to contribute to the outdoors as long as he can. His love for the sport is what makes him drive harder to keep it alive. I now look up to Gary as he is an inspiration me about what this sport is really about. I hope our paths cross again soon so that I might get to learn more about what this man is doing to keep our sport alive.

FTSE March Contract

FTSE made new contract highs of 5615 yesterday and the close has been quite good...
However if we cannot sustain above 5591 then we shall see this come lower for 5575/73
initially.


This offers good support and all shorts should be covered to here. Look to instate small
longs, keeping stops below 5565. A loss of this support keeps the bias to the downside
and targets 5559 then 5550/42.


Now if we can hold above 5591 then there is scope for another test of the highs. Cover
all longs prior this resistance. Re-instate over 5624 as this would keep the bias to the topside targeting 5641/46 initially with potential for 5656/58.

Plastic Surgery Institute of Southeast Texas Offers Milder Anesthesia for Outpatient Procedures

Plastic Surgery Institute of Southeast Texas Offers Milder Anesthesia for Outpatient Procedures
General anesthesia just isn't the best option for cosmetic and plastic surgery patients. The Plastic Surgery Institute of Southeast Texas provides their patients with a more suitable option called TIVA.

Houston, TX March 18, 2010 -- General anesthesia is well-known and well-used in cosmetic surgery procedures. It is also one of the top concerns for people considering plastic surgery. TIVA, or Total Intravenous Anesthesia, then, is a technique now used by the Plastic Surgery Institute of Southeast Texas to make both the anesthesia and recovery process easier for clients.
With TIVA, our clients still undergo a complete review of their medical history as well as necessary labs and studies prior to surgery, said Dr. Leo Lapuerta, director of Plastic Surgery Institute of Southeast Texas and board-certified plastic surgeon in Houston. However, this milder option eliminates the need for a breathing tube, ventilator and anesthesia gas, and it reduces many risks associated with general anesthesia. It also makes recovery much easier for patients who need to get back to their busy lives and can do so comfortably and independently.
Many cosmetic surgeons continue to use general anesthesia because it is inexpensive and because more doctors are familiar with it from medical school and residency training programs. It is still an appropriate option for surgeries that entail overnight stays, however, TIVA is a safe and effective option for outpatient procedures.

About Plastic Surgery Institute of Southeast Texas
Offering a full range of cosmetic surgery procedures designed to help clients achieve a more youthful face and body, the Plastic Surgery Institute of Southeast Texas is home to Dr. Leo Lapuerta, one of Houstons premier plastic surgeons. Dr. Lapuerta is a triple board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon who specializes in assessing the entire body. The office serves Houston, Pearland, Sugar Land, Friendswood, Katy and Lake Jackson. For more information, visit www.lookyounger.net

 
 

Scientific Disclosure Ethics Questioned in Diabetes Drug Debate

23.03.10
PrintE-mail
March 19, 2010 /EIN PRESSWIRE/ The relationship between the scientific community and pharmaceutical companies is coming under fire again. At the center of the most recent black eye is the diabetes drug Avandia. The immensely popular drug was linked with an increased risk of heart attacks in research published in 2007. Since the findings, the scientific community has largely come to the defense of the drug, but a new report suggests a growing concern with conflict of interest between scientists and pharmaceutical companies. Researchers from the Mayo Clinic analyzed more than 200 articles published after 2007 in scientific journals, which commented on the heart-attack risk associated with Avandia. They found 47% of the study authors had financial conflicts of interest, but 23% of them not disclose it. The Mayo study says 94% of the authors who had positive views about Avandia had financial links with pharmaceutical companies and 87% had financial links with the drug's manufacturer, GlaxoSmithKline. Of the 29 articles strongly recommending the rival Eli Lilly drug, Actos, as a replacement for Avandia, 25 were by authors with financial links to Lilly.

March 18, 2010 /EIN PRESSWIRE/ Will the US be found guilty of human rights violations? For the first time, the US will submit itself to a "universal periodic review" by the UN Human Rights Council. "Human rights are universal, but their experience is local. This is why we are committed to holding everyone to the same standard, including ourselves," said US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Every UN member nation is supposed to be reviewed once every four years, but some observers are afraid the whole process will be politicized by human rights abusers, such as Iran and Myanmar, in order to justify their abuses.

Turkey Preseason, Mitch Strobl

With turkey season right around the corner, stores are filling up with hunters getting ready for season. Everyone is stocking up on the new calls, choke tubes, decoys, anything and everything that will increase their chance of success in the 2010 turkey season. While this is all part of the excitement leading up to opening day, I would like to share with you how I have been preparing for the season. Of course I have rummaged through every isle containing turkey-hunting supplies, but I have also added a fun way to both save money, and deal with the preseason anticipation.

In the previous spring I had a very unlucky day that all hunters encounter, and to top it off I broke my favorite striker. As I was searching for a new striker I was shocked at how expensive a simple piece of wood could be. I made the decision to make my own striker, which turned out to be the best decision I have made in preparation for the upcoming turkey season.

Sorouh Announces the Best Deal Under the Sun
Why Rent? campaign, aimed at all nationalities, offers best mortgage rate in Abu Dhabi

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates March 19, 2010 -- Abu Dhabi residents awoke this morning to a new Sun in the East as Sorouh Real Estate PJSC, one of the leading real estate developers in the UAE, officially launches its exclusive, limited offer on Sun Tower on Al Reem Island.
Sorouh's Why Rent? promotion offers the best mortgage rate in Abu Dhabi to purchasers of any nationality who wish to buy a spacious apartment or penthouse in Sun Tower, part of Sorouh's prestigious Shams Abu Dhabi development on Al Reem Island.

Sorouh's Why Rent? campaign, in conjunction with Abu Dhabi Finance, offers an unparalleled two-year fixed mortgage rate of 4.99%, which is approximately 40% below prevailing market offers. Abu Dhabi Finance will provide up to 85% financing on properties, allowing people who have rented their entire lives in Abu Dhabi to own a home in the capital for the first time from as little as AED 6,500 per month.
The pre-launch of the new sales offer received a strong response from over 100 interested parties looking to buy property in Abu Dhabi, endorsing both the quality of the property product on offer by Sorouh, and the exceptional financing package it has arranged for customers.
Simon Cunningham, Chief Sales & Marketing Officer, Sorouh, said: "We are thrilled to provide Abu Dhabi residents with this exceptional financing offer, which is entirely in keeping with the magnificence of Sorouh's development. Both the property and the mortgage rate offer excellent value, especially to Abu Dhabi's long-term renters. Shams Abu Dhabi's investment zone status means that owning a magnificent home in the city is now a dream come true for everyone, regardless of nationality."
The 65-storey Sun Tower, and its sister development, Sky Tower, are the tallest buildings on Al Reem Island, and the cornerstone of Sorouh's landmark Shams Abu Dhabi development on the island. The one, two, three, and four-bedroom units available for sale come in various floor plans and sizes, all with quality finishes and excellent amenities including a shopping mall, private gym and spa, tennis courts, childcare facilities and more. In addition, Abu Dhabi property owners in Sun and Sky will boast the best views available anywhere in the city, with breathtaking panoramic vistas across land and sea.
Sorouh also has become the first developer in Abu Dhabi to launch a dedicated sales website. The website, http://property.sorouh.com, includes live data on available properties in Sorouh's developments, starting with Sun and Sky. Customers using the website can research the type of property they want, its floor plan, price, availability and other important information, before going to the sales centre to discuss details and to complete paper work.
The website ensures greater convenience and transparency for potential buyers, who will be able to see all available units in real time. Once buyers have made their selection, Sorouh's sales team will respond rapidly, while also ensuring excellent customer service via a system that tracks and monitors all online enquiries.
Mr Cunningham said, "The new sales portal will provide customers with easy accessible information and brings a new level of transparency to the property market in Abu Dhabi. Finding correct, updated information on availability and prices has not been easy in the past. The new website expands our customer service and allows us to evaluate and further improve our customer relations."

After hunting many years without success DJ decided after watching a hunting show on television to book an outfitter for his next year’s hunt. He contacted his lifelong friend and hunting buddy to join him in his dream of hunting the illusive wapiti in the mountains of Colorado.

The first task at hand was to decide what area that he wanted to hunt. After much research and talking with the Colorado Division of Wildlife about elk herds and populations it was decided that unit 77, 78, and 771 may fit the need. There are aspen meadows and lots of grasses, dark timber canopies and steep slopes with plenty of water. All the right ingredients for that special hunt.

Next was to contact the local USDA Forest Service to get a list of outfitters in the general area that is authorized to provide the needed service. After narrowing the area to be hunted it was decided to check into several outfitters and the cost involved in hiring there service.

Turkey Hunting by Terri Lee Pocernich

Turkey is one species I have wanted to hunt for quite some time. We have only had tags available for wild turkey in our area in the last few years and I have just never had the opportunity due to work or other factors. I have always been open to trying new things especially in the hunting arena and last year I was drawn for a tag. I was immediately pumped. I had heard how fun it was to hunt these birds and how much harder than deer hunting it was. I looked forward to the challenge.

In late March I was informed I needed a hysterectomy. Doc asked me, if I had any questions concerning the surgery? My only question to the Doctor was, will I be able to go turkey hunting? His chuckling response in turn was, you should be fine, just have someone else carry the bird!

My husband and I hunted the first few days of my season together with no luck. He had drawn and been successful in an earlier season and was along to call for me (and carry the bird).

Mid season, he had to leave on business so I recruited a friend of mine Candy Grubisic, as her husband and hunting partner had also had to leave for the remainder of the season. She was an experienced turkey hunter and knew what she was doing.
