Talk Turkey

For the second time this season...

Postby ufgators68 » Sun Apr 02, 2006 8:47 am

I had a field full of turkeys in front of me and I missed the gobbler I shot at. :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

And the one I missed happened to be the boss gobbler that I've been listening to for 3 years without ever seeing. I think I'm gonna go cry now. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Reb, You're looking at it the wrong way. I would refer to that as "Catch and Release!" :lol:

:shock: :shock:

I prefer to do that with fish only...lol. Only thing I can figure is I'm jerking the trigger. I checked the scope and pattern. Out to 40 yards, it ought to put a hurtin' on them. At 25 yards it bodyslams the target I use, literally.

I know that's part of it. :oops: :oops: :oops: I was breathing hard and shaking when I heard them coming up behind me. :lol: :lol: :lol: It's been a long time since I was that excited about shooting a game animal. Only time I do any shaking with deer is when I have my bow and it's a buck in front of me or after I've killed a nice buck, with my rifle, my knees start shaking. If it's a big'un I have to wait a few minutes before I get down.

I sure would've loved to make that one my first bird. He's got a thick 10"+ beard, couldn't see the spurs and he is considerably larger than the two other gobblers that were with the group. In all, I saw 13 turkeys yesterday morning. It was for sure a good, should've been a great day. :lol: :lol:

Well at least you got to take a shot, heck at least you got to see one only turkey in the woods I have seen has been me and one lousy hen.

Anyone else having difficulty seeing anything this year? I've only heard them gobbling one day seems like something isn't right.
