horn hunter,nice birds ..........shooting them with a bow is fun,but getting them to come in to your setup is sometimes not easy.other times they come running in.....??

Thanks...and congrats on your bird as well!

The birds out here this spring have been really quiet and unresponsive to calls..not much talking except right off the roost.

Hopefully the weather will change next week and warm up a little so the wife can get out and kill her bird.

Finally had a chance to take the wife (Leanna) out this a.m. to hunt.

Setup the blind last night and this morning did a little calling and the 3 birds came in like they were on a string ...Leanna made a great 26 yard shot and now has her first turkey!!!

First pic is of the bird she killed that I took yesterday when I was out scouting.

Got this little dude Sat morning. Was the last time I could get out for the season so I left the bow at home and took the 10 ga. Only weighed 13.5 lbs and had a 3" beard. I wanted one for the smoker and this one will be real tasty! :-o

If we do this again, does it have to be archery only. I know this is a archery site, but turkeys are meant to be hunted with shotguns.
