Turkey (Bow) Hunters

Linda Thompson - Turkey Bow 03

I had 2 turkeys come out of the woods 12 feet from the ground blind. One jake was strutting and behind some small trees, so I shot at the other one (they were about the same size) I actually was so close, that I over-compensated for my 20 yard pin and shot under the bird...

They jumped, but didn't run. The one jake went into strut again and they both moved out to 8 yards away, and I nailed him. I could have shot both of them if I would have had two permits (we are allowed one).

What a great hunt! I'm working on the story, and will send it when done.
