Shoot Type: Turkey
Spring 2011 Z7 Turkey Hunt
My brother and I were watching this turkey for a few days. The first setup was a little off, we seen the birds fly down then moved off. Had a few hens come up to my mounted decoy set, that ended day one. The next day we set up with in 100yards of the roost. I had to get my setup in between the roost and where they traveled. The hens flew into the decoys, and the tom worked this way into the setup. We filmed the hunt and watched the thunder chicken beat up on my mounted tom decoy. Then took a 12 yard shot with my Mathews Z7, and rage broadhead. We watched him go down within 30 yards. This picture reminded me of one that would be on a cover of a outdoor magazine or catalog. It all turned out great. We are trying to get into a carrer in the outdoors, with filming, guiding, hunting, something.
