Bow and Shotgun

10 posts in this topic

Question that I'm sure someone on here could answer. I have a tag for the fall turkey season (this weekend)and an archery deer tag. I have seen a number of deer in the area the last two weeks which got me thinking. Is it legal to have a 12 gauge with turkey load-and a bow in my stand? My concern of course is the legality of having a gun and bow with only a archery deer tag. I guess I could just play it safe and leave the bow at home-but sure as heck as soon as I do that a 225 lb. 12 pointer will walk thru broadside at 15 yards and I'll be kicking myself.

You are not allowed to carry a gun with you while archery hunting.

I would say look at the shot placement chart for shooting turkeys and bowhunt for both.

I would think it would be pretty fun to try and arrow a big old bird

I've tried bowhunting turks two different years now and the only thing keeping me from getting a bird was getting one in range. I've had several in the 35-40yd range, but for a bow shot that is just too far. I don't get 3" groups at 40yds yet so I'll have to keep practicing.

I might be wrong but I don't think you can shoot turkeys from an elevated stand. I believe you would need to hunt from a ground blind.

Not true. Turkeys can be taken from a treestand, but they are very hard to draw on unless there is something between you to block their vision.

Ended up not being an issue-cable on bow broke Saturday afternoon. Of course I brought the shotgun only that morning, had 4 deer within 15 yards of me-one within about 10 feet and I was on the ground. Of course as soon as I decide to bring the bow-it breaks,

    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.  
    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.
