A bowhunter lands an unbelievable headshot and experiences turkey hunting's greatest reward.
This big gobbler got schooled by a veteran bowhunter. Those long hours of practice really paid off!
It's one thing to get that big boy to walk right up to the blind. It's another thing to make the perfect shot.
The joy of turkey hunting comes from so many different factors it's hard for me to pin down one single reason why we love it so much. Learning the right calling techniques and scouting for roosting areas are key, as is blending into your environment. Blinds have their place, but many of us prefer just our backs against a tree wearing a Ghillie suit or straight camo. Which do you prefer?
Even scent control can play an important part in successful turkey hunt. Raise your hand if you have ever experienced the following while on a turkey hunt: a deer winds you then thrashes through the cover where your bird was hiding.
Just watching this video gives me a few things to think about while waiting for turkey season to start.
