I didn't like it... It was my first experience with turkeys, and I have only done 2 batches of chickens before. I found it much harder and more violent than the chickens. I was warned that their necks are much thicker than chickens so not to just try to cut them like we did the chickens. I decided we would shoot them with the 22. My BIL was helping me, somewhat against his will. I only have the two turkeys and they would follow us around like dogs. I tried not to get attatched, but it was really hard not to. I took 2 shots with my 22 pistol and missed both times, so I handed it to my BIL and he missed as well. He switched to the 22 rifle and hit the first one right in the middle of the head. She flopped to the ground, did somersaults and landed on her back, flapping her wings wildly for what seemed like forever... The second one he hit, but the bullet must have entered her mouth and blew out her neck on the other side. It didn't look on one side like she had been hit, but there was blood coming from her mouth and she started choking on her own blood. When she turned around, there was a hole in her neck with her tongue hanging out of it. She was very much alive and concious and she ran to her favorite spot, which was next to the dog kennel. We had to try to move her away and then held her down so my BIL could shoot her again in the back of the head... Not a good experience at all!! My BIL said he is going to have nightmares! There must be another way! Anyone have any advice for me if I decide to try turkeys again??
