I accomplished one of my hunting goals this afternoon. I was on the way back to my deer stand and heard turkeys clucking in a grove of trees on the south bank of the river that runs through the property. I did about a 100 yard sneak through tall grass, and when I finally got to where I could see the birds, they were still about 70 yards away. I practice on targets out to 40 yards, but I try to keep my shots on animals around 30. There was about 25 yards of grass I mowed a few weeks ago that had started to grow back, and past that was short grass up to a little wash. I belly crawled up to the wash, and the birds were getting nervous. I left my rangefinder in the Ranger, so I Kentucky windaged the distance and took the shot. He dropped like a rock.
The other birds just milled around, and the other tom in the group went over to beat my bird about the head, neck, and ears. I really didn’t want to spook them, so I waited until they wandered off to go get him. It ended up the shot was 36 yards.
He weighed 23lbs and has a 9.75” beard.
