    Got my first turkey with my bow yesterday.  Shooting a Heli-m with Magnus bullheads.  Nice shot at 15 yards.  What a rush, so much more fun than with the shotgun.

    today we have a snow storm and have gotten 15 inches so far today. Calling for 18 to 19!

    Thanks all, would be nice to go get another one but only have 1 tag for a turkey.

    BTW – the snow fall was anywhere from 17.5 to 23.5 inches in one day.  We broke several snowfall records for our area (central ND).  Uffda.  Helped a few people get their cars dug out this morning so we could things cleaned up good.  One of those times when you go “I know there’s a car under there somewhere” and just start digging.

    You’re right about using a bow verses a shot gun — congrats!

    Nice! I too recently went on my first Turkey hunt and harvested one. Never have gunned for them, and doubt I ever will.
