    Do you do any good at turkey hunting?

    :love can't say I blame you. He looks awesome.

    I've only been hunting for about 10 years, and prefer archery season. I hate the bitter cold weather.

    Dudley likes to squirrel hunt :D

    I grew up in a home where we raised, harvested, slaughtered, hunted, caught, killed, butchered, canned, smoked, pickled, dried, about everything we consumed. Nothing was wasted, be it pork brains or chicken feet.

    We have an abundance of turkeys on my camp property now, but that's only been the case for the past few years. I've only taken 2 toms, 13-14" beards, good sized birds. Last one was a couple years ago. 53 yards with a 22 Magnum.

    ETA - my first ever was with my bow. :D

    With a bow is pretty impressive. I went out once and was the only turkey making noise. We have some running around the property, might shoot one this year if they are dumb enough to walk past me when I've got a fun.

    Deb!! :hugs



    :D I actually got lucky. Was deer hunting and a flock flew in. There must have been 20 of them. I didn't even know where to aim! Texted hubby, he said shoot, so I did. :lol: And I got it on video.

    He's good at listening and watching, but not so quiet when he actually sees one :gig
