who needs a weapon, just strap on the loin cloth and chase them down by hand.

I guess so. My 30+ year old 410 probably isnít up to todayís standards. No choke modified bore. Killed more sharks than land critters with it.

The hunt I hold as my "best" was a spot and stalk compound bow hunt on a fall longbeard.


There was nothing easy about it.


I still remember how ridiculous it seemed as I was in a hay field with a bow...


A 410 with a good choke and TSS would have made that hunt MUCH easier.



This summer I'm working on something special for next season.....there's a few of us shooting them with flintlocks. But I've yet to see one killed with a flintlock pistol....that's my next goal lol. Not sure what my range will be yet...I will be cheating with TSS just for the pellet counts and penetration. I think it'll still make a 10-15 maybe even 20yd turkey gun. We'll see...and it'll be tested a LOT before going to the woods.

Mauser,
Flintlock or not no handguns for Turkeys in Penns Woods in the spring, not legal. Fall only. Just sayin.

The days of our lives are like money, limited in amount, so spend them wisely.

Jr and I tried the bows one spring for the entire first week, we did not hunt from blinds or with decoys. If I remember right we had 7-8 opportunity's on mature gobblers. Getting a bow drawn is the tough part, the second week we took the shotguns and filled all our tags. Anyone who can get it done using a bow, without a blind and decoys is my hero....
