This is my first turkey of the 2010 season! It was also my first with a bow and the first Turkey I have killed on video. Unfortunately, I have a VHS-C camcorder so I cannot post the video but I do have these pics. I was hunting solo and took the shot at about 5:20 p.m. on April 15, 2010. He never gobbled or anything. He came out of the woods and went straight to my jake decoy. He was 11 yards when I shot him. It was an incredible feeling and I will never forget it!! My Dad and my Father in Law where there for the recovery so that made it even better. Oh I almost forgot! He was 18lbs., had a 9.5' beard, and 7/8' spurs.
