I like a 30yd shot or closer personally. I have been hunting turkeys since the early 80's and a 50+ yd shot wasn't really even a thought or possibility for some of us veteran hunters back then. We had to rely on our set ups, calling and woodsmanship to get one in close. But it seems like many folks have lost their sense of what Spring Turkey hunting's essence really is. The new hunters out there are watching the hunting videos coming out with the self proclaimed "pros" popping birds out past 50+ on a regular basis and in my opinion this gives the wrong impression on our new hunters out there. I have a hard time listening to some of these "pros" who were probably watching Barney and Friends while I was in the turkey woods with many years under my belt. I personally enjoy watching them work their way into close range to calls/dekes because it gives me a sense of accomplishment knowing I fooled him. That is what this passion is really about. Getting that smart ole bird to come into your calls and commit suicide...not stalking a field and belly crawling to 75 yds and taking a pop shot. This is purely my opinion but shooting them really far away just isn't for me. If you like doing that sort of thing then I leave that up to the hunter. Recent advancements in firearms tech has produced some awesome firearms/chokes/rounds that can enable a hunter to take shots at great distances but you have to ask yourself if doing that is worth rolling a bird, having it run off and possibly injuring the bird so it suffers? I would like to think that if you are a hunter, then you are all about taking an animal clean and ending it's final moment of pain rather quickly. This is just my .02 cents mind you.
