Anyone dropped a Turkey yet
« on: April 19, 2009, 10:00:00 PM »
Just checking to see if anyone is having some success with these wiley ground buzzards. I'm either getting worse as a turkey hunter, or they're getting that much smarter.

Love the new bow Steve. Thanks for helping Vince glue it up. First time out with it this season, I was able to connect on a Jake. Must have hit him in the wing bone, or he was wearing his kevlar that evening. He actually bent the tip on my Wensel Woodsman. I put the 42 year old chase down on him, but he had a lot left in the tank. Since then, I haven't had much in the way of luck.

I took one yesterday afternoon around 3:15 at ten yards, first one to give me a shot. I'll post the story here in a few days with photos. Shot him with an arrow I recieved from the white elephant gift exchange that the guy had taken a deer with, pretty cool, the arrow still had deer blood on it, I had hoped to pass it along to see if anyone else could take an animal with it too but unfortunately the bird snapped the arrow when it fell forward dead. I took him in full strut just an inch above the beard and it came out of his rear end....perfect, he went 8 yards and died on his feet falling forward on the arrow, it was a good death. Good luck guys, I havent seen the really big ones yet but the birds here are still grouped up pretty good but with the warm weather this week and no rain I'll be in the woods again for sure, i seem to have developed a cough.

ONLY IN THE WOODS AND FIELDS DO I FEEL ALIVE, LIKE A HUNTER FROM TIMES PAST, ALTHOUGH THE HISS OF MY ARROW GOES FORTH, I AM TAKEN BACK, IT IS MY ESCAPE...
