did not expect a shot

Postby homunculi » October 20th, 2012, 9:14 am

it started raining yesterday so i got out of work early ,, went to the in-laws property and got in my stand ...

i was there for about 40 min waiting on a deer to come in .. when 7 turkey came in ...

all i had was my compound bow and i know i have bagged 2 last year with my crossbow...

as i got up the birds were still coming in .. i was thinking they should have busted me ..

and when the toms started to walk away fast i knew they did as i was drawing the bow ..

a hen got into my shooting lane ... thunk!!!! ..

she took off and i thought i missed but kept hearing leaves over the hill so i got out of my stand .. and went over that way

and well .. she is in the crock pot now... :)

Nice job, too bad the gobblers spotted you. I hope you have more tags and get a few more in the pot.

Congrats on the bird! always a great feeling to go looking for a bird you thought you missed and find it lying stone dead :D
