Default Long Shot Story

Alright guys I finaly got one. I have called in a lot of beards for people in the past, but I finally got one. It was not huge. It was 18#'s, 9.25" beard, and 7/8" spurs, but I got him nonethenless. It was almost 2:00 in the afternoon and I got one to answer me while stalking through one of my spots. I stood next to a tree and got him to come in, but he hung up on me, so I peeked around the tree and zapped him with teh range finder. It was 57 yards, so I set the pin on my bow and drew back, stepped out from the behind the tree, and touched off the arrow. It went right through the heart and lungs and skipped across the ground about 10 yards past it. The Turkey dropped after about 15 yards.


Add one for team 5

57 yard bow kill.

Go Bowtech!!!!!!

great job that's an amazing bow shot on a turkey. that's even a pretty good distance for a shot gun.

I think any time you bag one with a bow you've done something to brag about. I couldn't hit the ground with a bow and arrow. Good deal man.
