Turkey Hunting Whether it's spring or fall doesn't matter to this bunch. Great tips on calling, bustin flocks, using blinds and more.

Default Turkey Question?

Do you use your bow or shotgun when hunting turkeys?

Neither, I like giving the bird a chance and use a rock.
But seriously Jas, I have gotten one bird with a bow and tried it some last year and reliased that I was going to starve, so I grabbed the 870 and got my bird the last weekend of spring gobbler last year. Bowhunting them early is an advantage as there not as spooky. Kinda like most game I guess, Good luck, Bobby

I use a gun. I shoot a bow and have gone out once or twice with it for a fall season. I have not had the practice I would require by spring. We just lost enough snow to shoot without worrying about arrow loss.. I have also helped track one or two birds that were hit and did not drop. Watched one fly across a river with the arrow hanging out of it, 7 hours after it had been hit. I find a several pellets to the head and neck to be highhly effective at ensuring the bird drops when hit. I know there are many archers out there that are far better shots than I , and have great success with their bows. I'll leave it to them.

Shotgun only for me. I have enough trouble getting busted drawing my bow while up in a tree.
