Shoot Type: Turkey
1st Turkey With A Bow
It was the first morning of the third week of season. My cameraman Dallas and I were in a blind on the edge of a field. The field is about 80 yards wide and the birds were roosting across from us in a small hollow. Well daybreak came and we could see some birds in roost. I had my decoys bout 7 yards from the blind. I didn’t make a sound till the birds pitched out into the field…then a couple soft yelps an purrs and the show was on… 11 birds came running to the decoys. They were so close that I was afraid to draw my Mathews z7 Xtreme tactical. So I drew and put the pin on him and said to Dallas, “you better be on him” then SWHACK. I let my Mathews eat… the Rage 2 blade did an awesome job. The bird never left the ground an only flopped about 15 yards to his final resting place… AWESOME hunt captured on video. Love my Mathews bows!
