Video of an awesome Kentucky turkey hunt...turkeys fighting

Postby tharp0003 » April 28th, 2012, 3:41 pm

I am in college so i was watching these birds every day on my way to school so i was itching for the 4/14/12 Opening day of Kentucky's Turkey season. However, I had no idea how awesome this hunt would be. I had several turkeys gobbling to my right On the roost, but then in a direction i was completely unsuspecting of, two toms started heading right for my decoy spread. After what seemed like an hour they then started running to my Pretty Boy decoy and attacked it. I shot one of the birds then the other one hung around till another bird came in and fought him right in front of my blind. One of the neatest things ive ever seen while turkey hunting... it only makes it that much sweeter that I got it on tape my very first time videoing. Definitively, one of the best hunts I have ever had. The Bird had a 10 3/4 inch bird, 5/8'' spurs and weighed 20 lbs.

pretty cool video... ive shot a few birds over my b-mobile and its pretty cool to watch em work on up to the decoy and try to knock it around. im gonna start filming hunts again next year. my old camcorder got a little too wet on a duck hunt this last year.
Imma give him a headache B.C cant fix

Congrats on your bird and thanks for sharing the hunt with us. It was interesting when after you shot that the other birds head changed from a red n white head to an all white head, and when that other bird came in his head was red n white and as they fought it changed to a pink n white head. Being that he won the fight and was more dominant before he changed back to a red n white head, and the bird he ran off still kept an all white head. It makes a good learning vid as to what calls you'd use to call either bird back in. Great vid, thanks again for sharing. ;)

I noticed the head coloration as well.... It's interesting that you brought up the question of dominance after they fought I had never even made that connection....very interesting, I will start paying more attention to how birds are acting with different head coloration's, I bet you are right.... And I'm very glad you enjoyed, It's great being able to share this with so many people that love turkey hunting as much as i do.... To the other question: I am hunting in Grayson County and more specifically in Big Clifty it is about an hour south of Louisville and about 30 minutes south of Elizabethtown....Something about this location draws turkeys in like crazy... there's already been five birds killed out of that field and there was 3 toms out there this morning when I drove by, I am truly blessed to have such an amazing spot to hunt..... where are you other Kentuckians from?
