The fall season begins.
« on: October 19, 2019, 12:02:58 PM »
The farmer took the beans out this week and I was finally able to get to the turkey blind. No luck yesterday, but this morning I was able to convince a flock of about a dozen hens to check out my decoys. This little gal got the short straw:

About twenty yards back to the blind.

I'm betting there is a list somewhere that turkeys keep and Pat is on the "naughty" side of the ledger. 

Good job. :yoyo:

Nice looking bird and will be good once it is out of the oven.  Since you gave up the shotgun to give them a chance and now keep dropping them with the crossbow I think you should consider a slingshot next.

Congratulation Pat.  Have you kept score over the years as to how many, weapon, time of day, etc.?
When they come for mine they better bring theirs

John,

I believe I have taken thirty-nine since December 2010. Two with an Encore 12ga., five with an Encore .410 handgun, twelve with the crossbow, and twenty with a Mossberg 12ga. A few were taken in the late afternoon or evening, but the vast majority were taken in the morning, usually within a couple hours of sunrise. All but one were taken on the same farm.

I am still allowed three more this fall season, if I can make it happen.  :biggrin:

Sling shot, blow gun or an atlatl.

No slingshots, blowguns, or atlatls allowed for turkey here. We are limited to breech or muzzle loading shotguns between 10 gauge and .410, and archery equipment. Slingshots are allowed for small game.

We are allowed a total of six each year. Two gobblers in the spring and one gobbler and three hens, or four hens in the fall. A very liberal limit which I try to take advantage of.  :biggrin:
