Tagged turkey on film

Postby quackingtim » May 4th, 2008, 10:06 pm

It was far from a text book hunt.  Hunted w/Mark Taylor.  He had his bow and camera, I had my gun, and we used Mark's double bull blind.  Lots of gobbling.  First we see a jake, hoping it wold get close enough for a bow kill but he seem nervous.  Then a tom came in, he wasn't going to get any closer so I shot him w/the gun, but I didn't hit him very good.  Luckly I shoot things better when they fly.  We stayed put and left my bird lay where he fell.  Another tom came in.  He was very cautious, and took a long time to come in.  The way we were seated in the blind, Mark had to shoot the camera, and the gun.  Here is my 18.5 lbs limb hanger.

That's a great bird, but I'll bet it was tough getting that 2nd one out of the woods and it will need some soaking before you'll be able to chew it, watch out for those little pellets........ man we all been there, it hurts.....

The tree is still soaking.  I told mark he has to eat what he shoots.
 
He was put in a bad spot on that hunt.  Because of how the turkey came in he had to run the camera and shoot the gun.  He got the turkey in frame and tried to shoot the bird between to trees before the turkey moved on him.  It was good time.
