  • First Turkey of 2010

    This is my first turkey of the 2010 season! It was also my first with a bow and the first Turkey I have killed on video. Unfortunately, I have a VHS-C camcorder so I cannot post the video but I do have these pics. I was hunting solo and took the shot at about 5:20 p.m. on April 15, 2010. He never gobbled or anything. He came out of the woods and went straight to my jake decoy. He was 11 yards when I shot him. It was an incredible feeling and I will never forget it!! My Dad and my Father in Law where there for the recovery so that made it even better. Oh I almost forgot! He was 18lbs., had a 9.5' beard, and 7/8' spurs.
    I've yet to kill a turkey with a shotgun, and can't imagine doing it with a bow! Congrats.

    Man, if you can get the vid transfered to digital we'd love to see it added to the video contest.
    Yeah I have shot one with shotgun and now bow. I have to say, to do it with archery tackle was unbelievable!! I was stoked after shotgun but nowhere like I was yesterday afternoon! I am going to talk to some people and see if I can get it converted over into a digital format. Will keep you posted.
    Can't wait
    Hopefully you'll get it done because I'd love to see the vid.

    Be sure and enter the photos in the photo contest in the meantime.
