    My season has been great,but hard. Was blessed with a trophy bird at Dons and tagged out reaching one of my goals,taking a nice one with my bow. Nice accomplishment,but I think I prefer the distance my shotgun allows,lol.

    Gotcha
    That's Cool...I noticed on your fan there...Those secondary feathers on the back...You can just pluck all those out and it makes the process easier..Can't see them on the finished mount anyway...Also the Tail muscle..You can take a sharp knife and level that meat off to help it cure faster, Just be careful and don't get into the quills..That is a Big fan and looks like you got some Sun while out there lol..I'm sure you will get the new Bow tuned in...Have any questions just ask.

    Awesome
    Lady D , congrats on a great bird !! The sense of accomplishment for getting a bow kill on a trophy bird must feel exhilarating. How far was the shot and where was the shot placement , did he go straight down or was there a recovery , blood trail ?

    Thanks
    I had seen this turkey several times and knew the way he came from roost each morning.I was lucky to have the upper hand because it allowed me to be waiting on him,and luckily he stuck to his pattern and direction to the field.I estimated the shot to be around 20 yards.I hit him thru the wings and he attempted to fly but couldn't and he ran about 10-15 yards and fell dying pretty fast up under a fallen tree.The bird was killed on private land and bow hunting is the only type of hunting allowed due to the fact the land owner does not like guns.

    Thanks for the nice comments.

    @ ncduckcommander, I'll definately let ya know when I head that way. I know I am for sure in September for bow season,and maybe sooner to help my Dad build some blinds. Would be nice to finally meet you. are you going to that sportsman show in Greensboro this year in July?

    I figured the turkey hunting out on my own,lol.Just hide and Shoot,j/k lmbo
    He did give me some good advice,but when it come down to the hunting i was solo.
    I'll be the first to admit that I don't know the first thing about dove hunting.Is it anything like quail hunting?

    Yea what was i thinkin givin him that much credit? haha. not really. quail huntin your movin around. dove huntin your just sittin there chillin. but i hunt over sunflower or corn fields every year. its just somethin to do to get ready for duck season an waitin on deer season for me.

    well I can sit there and chill like a pro,lol. Im gonna have to look up dove huntin on you tube and check it out.
    Thats funny you say its something to do til duck and deer season,lol.Thats how I tried to convince my Dad to turkey hunt.I told him ,'hey ,its something for you to hunt til deer season'. After he saw i could call a turkey to us he was all excited about trying it again next year. he didn't even know there was turkey in his area.
