Conclusion: Point of No Return

Postby Brian Lovett » July 21st, 2010, 4:27 am

In "Decision Time," Editor Brian Lovett shares a scenario from his 20-plus years hunting turkeys. Each hinges on a critical decision. Post what choice you would have made, then see how things actually turned out.

Conclusion: Point of No Return


It's not like me to abandon the hottest turkey in the woods, but that's what I did. I headed to the point, set up and started calling. Lo and behold, the gobbler fired up, and within 15 minutes, he was flopping 30 steps from my gun barrel.

Could I have killed the turkey across the draw? Perhaps. But on that late-May day, familiarity with a good setup trumped frequent gobbling.

What decision did you make?

Just read my response again.

Sounds like I hunt with alot of "hoping" going on.

Glad to hear it worked out the way you played it. A hot bird is going to get my attention most of the time. Perhapss that bird will be around at a later date and be willing.
