Public Land Merriam’s Turkey, with a Bow and No Blind…? Oh Yeah!

This hunter is able to down a big public land Merriam’s turkey with his bow.

Any archery turkey kill is something to be proud of, but doing it without a blind makes the task a whole lot harder. Watch the video to see what it takes to down a public land Merriam’s with a bow without the help of a blind.

This hunter was successful for a number of reasons. First, he remained motionless when the gobbler could see him, only adjusting his position when the bird went behind a tree. Second, he was able to draw his bow smoothly and quietly from a seated position. Finally, he made an accurate shot to anchor his bow-killed gobbler.

Hunters looking to have similar success should keep these keys in mind whether they are chasing public land merriam’s or woodlot easterns this spring.
