Turkey Pictures

19 posts in this topic

Not the biggest turkey in the woods but when the big tom's turned and stayed out of range he came in strutting,spitting, and druming I could not pass up a 10 yard shot on a strutting jake. He went down right in his tracks and when the big tom's saw that they came over and started jumping on him and spurring him. Great morning had 11 legal birds come into 55 yards and only one hen,done buy 8:05.

Great job! Any bird with a bow is a real trophy in my book.

Congratulations!

Where you in a blind? The reason I ask is because I'm thinking of using my bow this year, instead of the gun.

Yes I use a blind I have done it before without one but it is really hard especially right now with the birds being flocked up you have alot of eyes to pick you off. I had a much smaller jake this morning come about 2 feet from my blind and stayed their for 10 min and didn't even care it was there and I almost allways set up in the middle of a feild they don't care about a blind so set it were ever they like to hang out and strut.

Nice work archerysniper. Any bird, especially one with a bow, is a trophy. It's nice to be carrying something out of the woods on opening morning.

Congrats I will be trying for one with a bow one of these years.

I bet its quite the challenge.

I stopped using a shotgun in 97 for more of a challenge and that is what I got lots of unfilled tags but it sure is a rush when you do connect. But any turkey with any weapon is a real trophy I have shot lots of whitetails with a bow and a turkey by far is the most challenging of all in minnesota.

Hey, that's a nice bird, what kind of broad head did you use?

Slick trick it's a 1-1/4 cut minne fixed four blade. I went to buy my NAP spitfires but at $38 for three I stuck to my big game head wich the bow was still sighted in for and I had a dozen left.

Cool!

Like the others, I am impressed when someone takes a bird with a bow. I keep it on my mind every year then chicken out and grab the shotgun.

Part of the problem is I don't really like using a blind. It's the claustrophobic in me I guess. Or its just the fact that I really look forward to wild turkey on the smoker grill! grin

Way to go sniper - no need to justify shooting that fine jake with archery equipment. He's a trophy in my books.
