After 4 years of trying to tag a tom with my bow I did it!! Had to resort to using a blind, but going back after #2 without the blind.

Congrats, great lookin' bird!!!  I've never hunted turkey, let alone with a bow, but after reading some of the great stories in this forum I might just have to try it!  Would luv to hear the story behind tagging him.

Ditto- congrats....

Thats something I've been trying to do for a couple of years now, but it just hasn't come together.

My hat is off to you!

Big high five KsBowhunter. Taking a turkey with a bow is one fine deed. What kind of blind did you use? I need to get one I guess since I've been busted too many times drawing my bow back and with a recurve I can't hold the draw very long.

Great Job Ksbowhunter!
I have a hard enough time with a shotgun let alone a bow. That must've been a real rush.

Congrats, from here too! I never had the nerve to try it with a bow, yet. Still hooked on getting them with a scattergun. I'll be hunting with Saw this week. He's got a blind and is determined to having me video him getting his with a bow. I hope it works out! My hat's off to anyone that's competent enough to do it while putting themselves at such a disadvantage. Again, congradulations.

Congrats, KS. Gotta be a real adrenaline rush to bag one with a bow. I'm still too wimpy to try it that way.

We were using a Double Bull Pro Staff blind. My buddy did all the calling and knew the area, so I can't take any credit for the setup.

The birds gobbled all around us till flydown, then only gobbled a few times. The jake I shot came in quiet about 45 minutes after first light with a hen in half-strut @ 6yds and I pinwheeled him. He pitched up and came down on my dekes but only made it about 35yds before piling up. 5" beard, 1/2" spurs, and weighed close to 20lbs.

It was a heck of a rush being my first bird. I have missed shots at two hens in the past two deer seasons and been able to draw on some hens during the spring season. I still want to take on off the ground without a blind though. Gonna take some skill and major luck to do it though.

Nice bird. Bow too, wow! Nothing is wrong with a blind. I use a jakehouse from time to time, too. It really helps on windy days in fairly open areas when there's only a small bush or tree out there. Best

KsBowhunter,

Congrats on getting one with the bow.  I have taken my bow a few times.  Unfortunately, the days I have taken it, I couldn't even call a hen to me.  Maybe one I'll get to connect with the ol' stick & string.  Congrats again.
