Re: First time turkey hunting and I missed
To me that would be a success. I've yet to get back to full draw on a turkey the past two seasons. Not having a blind doesn't help. As compared to hunting in a treestand, range estimation on the ground is alot harder. At least in a tree you can use the height advantage to section off distances. That is not the typical case on the ground. I put my decs at a known distance and use that to help establishing the distances through other shooting lanes.
