Watch the video to see what happens next.

Wow, that was up close and personal.

This hunt illustrates the importance of remaining still when a gobbler is in sight. Jerod and the cameraman did a great job of keeping still as statues, even as this bird walked by just three yards away. Once the turkey walked by, all it took was a sharp putt and a well-placed shot to bring this hunt to a close.

There’s still plenty of turkey season to go. Get out today and you might have an up close turkey encounter of your own.
