Bow hunting


Recommended Posts

After a recent shoulder surgery it looks like this will be my first year in many where I won’t be able to kill a bird with a bow. I’ve killed turkeys with every legal weapon imaginable and nothing compares to the excitement of shooting  one with a bow without a blind. Having to draw when a turkey is in range is exhilarating. 
 

Anyone  going to be chasing them this year with a bow, or have done it in the past?

 Did you Tear your Rotator  Cuff or have age related Cartilage Loss?  I know a number of friends that have Shoulder Problems  because Cartilage Thins especially  in the Shoulders and Knees.

No, this happened dealing with an intoxicated local at work.

I got a Turkey with a bow once...place I hunted was overrun with them. More culling than hunting  as the land owner wanted the gone since they were destroying newly planted crops digging in his freshly turned soil.

I've always thought to do it with a recurve but haven't vested the time to feel i was proficient enough. i've let some walk in the fall with a compound bow multiple times. spring more than not i'm with someone and it's not conducive to bringing a bow. maybe i'll give it another go this spring. drawing is hard not in a blind but honestly you're concealing yourself in some way anyway if you want to be successful in my experience. it not like you're out in the open drawing like you sit at a base of a tree with a shotgun. aint gonna happen unless you get a lucky break.

I've shot two with a bow and never found either one of them.   Shotgun for me.  As Tacks said they are meant to be shot in the face with a scatter gun.  Lol

Not only did tacks say it but he wrote it the comment section of levi Morgan's instagram page and Levi uses that phrase now . Levi also won't use a bow to shoot turkey.

Does he get any reciprocals for it?  He should for those words of wisdom.   It's better than Super Bowl for sure.
