I Scored This Morning!

12 posts in this topic

I have seen a bunch of turkeys while bowhunting the metro area but haven't been able to get a shot. With just one day left in the season I decided to break out the 870.

There were only a few roosting near me but they flew across the road onto a farm that I don't have permission to hunt. I have seen them do this before and usually some come back into my pine plantation. I set up as close as possible to them and called every so often. Finally, here they come! About 10, all toms. These weren't the BIG ones I've seen in here, but hey...one day left.

This is the first one that gave me a clear shot. 17 lbs, 6 oz. 7" beard. 5/8" spurs.

My first Minnesota fall turkey.

They didn't seem to mind the blaze orange one bit.

Good work DonBo! Nice bird.....never apologize for a fall bird! They can come easy, but most of the time I find it more difficult than spring hunting.

Way to go Donbo.

I agree that no one should apologize for getting a turkey. Just getting in range is tough let alone making the shot.

Congrats on a hard-earned bird.

    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
