Stoned my 1st turkey
« on: October 29, 2012, 07:01:52 pm »
Been struggling this year and last trying to make it happen. Although, I had deer on my brain when I left the house, these birds quickly changed my mind. Watched em come in from about 150yds and I was trying to keep my head down while they walked into range.

Once I could see they were at about 15yrds, I came to full draw and then straightened up (while on my knees.) I've been practicing that shot a lot in the off season and MAN did it pay off!

George's trade bow and stone points on cane arrows. A deadly combination!!

Thanks for looking!

Looks like that ol' blue-head is done scratching corn for the season.  Nice way to collect fletching for the next set.  Enjoy the eats!

Thanks guys! That certainly helps to alleviate some of the pressure I've been feeling lately. It's just good to go out and get it done. Now if I can have some success with the deer herd I will feel whole again.

I asked Iowabow if this counts in our little competition, and he said "it has to be a deer." Sooo, still got some work to do.    ;)

That is a beautiful picture with your turkey and your bow against the leaves.  Fall is a beautiful time of year.  That's a scene right out of history, something most of our ancestors did at one time or another.
