Re: Turkeys with a bow???

Have used the bullhead and fixed blades but have gone back to mechanicals just have had better experiences with them. I shoot anywhere between 3-7 birds a year with them and still like the end results with the mechanicals.

Re: new to turkey hunting

Best thing to do is forget hunting turkeys all together! In all honesty it's a sickness like no other to some people once they are hooked! Scout, scout, and scout some more! Wake up listen and watch the turkeys habits that's step one. Be courteous to other hunters and be safe. Been hunting these Mis...

Re: Scope vs Red Dot????

Foam to the comb may just be your best answer. Cheek weld is very important no matter what sights you would use. Good luck with the boys practice wont hurt one bit either and should be fun too.

Re: Scope vs Red Dot????

A little magnification is nice some times in wide open county! Have shot scopes and killed running gobblers and flying Canada geese not as fast as a red dot to acquire target but it can be done. The vortex venom is way faster if trying to find a running/flying target. Both are quite easy to use when...

Re: New Hunter New Property

Sometimes it's best to sit a ways off and watch where turkeys go (travel routes) and where they end up mid morning. Then the next day be on the travel route it will make you seem like your a world champion caller. This way you will not disturb their roosting spot so you can hunt them again and again...

I could of used that scope to have gotten a better look at that women someone was giving away last week.
1.65- 5x magnification also comes in handy when you’re stalking that Tom and see that Farmer’s wife off in the distance.

I usually go for the farmer's daughter!
