Anyone taking the crossbow for turkey this Spring?

Just wondering who all was taking the crossbow this Spring.

My son and I will be taking it this year. We carried it a few days last year, but didn't get any shooting with it. I don't know if we will take it exclusively, but we will definately hunt a fair amount with it.

Traditions only last if you pass them down to your kids!

Maybe you could use the gobbler gullotine to knock down some of the weeds.

Best of luck to ya. Hardest thing I have done in my hunting career was leaving the Remington in the gun cabinet during spring gobbler season. Especially after having a longbeard within 20 yards on the opener and not getting a shot becuase I was bowhunting.

It won't happen if you don't take the bow.
