    Shooting a turkey with a bow is unethical!

    I prefer to just throw them in the oven while they are still alive... more juicy that way :laugh:

    I have never hunted turkey before, but I am hoping to maybe get a chance this year (with my bow) :cool:
     
  15. Meet BOB....

    I got my Primos B-Mobile decoy last week, and was given a bunch of turkey fan feathers by a buddy at work, actually a member here, "NYBucksandBeards", so I made up a feather fan for Bob... It turned out OK, looks like a mix between a jake and a wimpy gobbler, so I hope it will work well.

    I have been waiting for sunlight to take some pics of him!
     
  16. What a treat!

    The other day I went to a property I hunt. My goal was to put up a trail cam to see if any birds are using the area and to get into the first fawn contest here....

    With my cam loaded up in the truck, I stopped at Tractor Supply to get some corn (for the turkeys DEc, for the turkeys....)

    I pull down the drive to the "Garden" and about 3/4 of the way down, I spot a turkey in the field, actually in the corner HTH and I set up last spring! Booyah!

    [​IMG]


    I stop, turn off the truck and reach for my bino's...HOME! Nuts..... I grab Andrew's little pair of Vortex Optics Twisters...mini-binos I got him last year!


    I was able to see it was a nice longbeard! He would eat, strut, gobble....eat, strut, gobble.....I was pumped! Here is a pic on 10X digital zoom, hand held....

    I watched him for about 15 minutes and he disappeared behind some trashy trees on the far end of the field. I grabbed the toys and trudged through the wet, very wet field to a spot where there are some bigger trees on the field edge.

    The cam went up fast. I aimed it into the field to watch where I think the birds are working the area....time will tell - it will stay there until May 1, the turkey opener.

  17. Oh hell yeah!......less than a week to go!

    I typically only bowhunt turkeys, from my blind. This year I may break out Dusty, my very old 12 gauge....

    I will be bowhunting here in NY in 3 towns, and was just invited up to Hurley, NY to bowhunt with a kid from Mathews Forums...

    I will alsi be hunting Conneticut.


    Check out my latest creation!

    Now as you fellow bowhunters know, with a blind, a bow, arrows, decoys, and the assorted OVERKILL we take into the woods with us can be a pain in the tookas to carry.....

    My blind, an Ameristep Brickhouse did come with a bag and carrying straps....but it is still a pain...

    So...taking a tip from many guys on AT, I put out the BOLO at work for a wheeled hand golf bag carrier...

    One of our rookies donated a very nice model to me, and with some camo spray paint, an empty bucket, and some zipties, I made a blind and bow carrier!

    I put a peice of pipe foam around the top of the bucket to protect my bow when I put it in as well. All in all, I think it came out AWESOME!

    Drove by where I'm hunting turkeys tonight to see if my blind was still up. It has been windy the past week and I put it up last Saturday. You could see my blind from the road which is probably 1/2 of a mile away on rolling hills. I could also see some birds about 100 yards from the blind. This was about 5:00, so I'm guessing these birds are going night night very close by. We shall see tomorrow morning. Let's see how this vectrix xl deals with a long beard tomorrow. It's finally time to get out there and chase em.
