Houdini Turkey Plays Dead and Runs Off After Being Shot AND Getting its Neck Wrung

Turkey now coined “Opossum” pulls off the unthinkable and escapes death…twice.

If you follow Trained Assassins, you know they are some turkey hunting fools, laying down some feathered friends every chance they get in the spring.

Turkey hunting videos fill our TV screens and social media pages come spring. But you will be hard pressed to find one more entertaining and puzzling than this one.

Single shot in hand, Blake squeezes one off, and the situation escalates quickly. And they are left with nothing else to do besides scratch their heads, tip their hat to the gobbler, and give him the name “Opossum.”

Just a rare case of one of those steel-breasted southern turkeys I guess. After watching the video, I am not real sure what else could have been done. After a shot, a wild chase, and then ringing of the neck, you are almost certain the turkey is down for the count.

I guess it just wasn’t his day.

Maybe Blake and Trained Assassins can get redemption on “Opossum” this year. Follow along to find out.
