Default Turkey Down. Great perfect hunt

Right off the roost in light rain. 10yrd shot.

Two jakes came in with him.

Second picture that the bird on the ground in upper left. Not on top of hill.
Jakes on the right.

Got to make those decoys look stupid. This is a skins feather over my decoy.

Default Everthing went wrong but worked out

Another member on the lease went to my number one spot. Thanks to him I got the right spot.

Blind borke That why the right side is stood up by the grass.

Slick Tricks did a number. I was shocked when I saw the arrow didnt get a pass through. GT500 is shooting around 260fps with my hunting arrow But you can see the damage and he didnt run 15 yrds.

This is a picture of exit.

Default Your Welcome

That would explain why they quit gobblin at 7 am. That would also explain why you didn't act happy to see me. Congrats Dan thats a good bird.

I usually hunt over on westside corner where Jeff was hunting. You got to talk the langauge of love. They talked a long way off the roost. Its first to get there turkey hunting. I have lots of holes to call turkeys at the ranch.
Birds have not been talking much this season. Been tough and I have been out a few times.

Nice bird Dan.

Can't wait to get these next few 3D shoots out of the way. I'm itching to get in the blind and pop a Rio.

Default Yep

Yes it has been slow but I have only been out twice. I am just glad to see you get one. Gives me confidence they are there. I haven't heard very many talking.

Congrats, gr8 pics!!!!!! I have seen those turkey skinz and they want $50 at a shop here in town!!! I am going to find someone raising wild ones around here and buy a hen cheap or let them know to call me if one dies. We can hunt hens in the fall, and maybe I just need to go shoot a hen for her plumage. I just am not giving $50.
