    Season doesn't open in Missouri until the 24th:Cry: and believe it or not(I'am 48) this will be my 1st Spring turkey hunt and I'am pumped. I have taken a couple with my bow during deer season in the fall, but have never been out in the spring. Will be spending the 27 28 29 30th on a hunt and hope too have stories and pictures when I get back:peace:

    Just during deer season

    I would hunt them in the spring but IL has no Archery season on em. Do you carry the Guillotine's (2 shoot thier head right off) yet? I would like to try some of them because broadheads put to bi a hole in them.

    What do you mean no archery season? You can hunting them with your bow in the spring time. You can use gun or bow.

    Successful Turkey Hunt

    After three days I finally bagged a nice tom. Took the bow out the first two days. Saw over 30 birds each day but they kept hanging up at forty to fifty yards. Finally had two seperate birds come in under twenty yards. The first one i missed, my fault i rushed the shot. Missed the second one at fifteen. Shot right over his head and I was aiming at body. Shot felt good but i couldn't figure out why i missed so bad. Half hour later i noticed three little cuts in my blind one inch from my the window where i shot through the blind and hit the zipper. How frustrating. Third day i took the flame thrower. Got a tom with a 10 inch beard and 1 1/4 inch spurs at 6:10 in the morning. You can not beat a good day of turkey hunting. I love it.

    Anyone else having luck?
