Here's my Ohio turkey that I shot last Thursday morning. I don't think we were in the blind any longer than 10 minutes. :darkbeer:

8 yard shot - Full strut
0 yard recovery
10 1/4 inch Beard
1" Spurs
22 lb Eastern

Watch him just lower his head to the ground after the shot.

I won that rest at a 3D shoot where they had a raffle for different items. Love it so far.

Both of us were in the blind, but my cameraman got out before me and videoed my getting out of it. He made me sit there longer than I wanted to, cause I wanted to get my hands on that bird. :darkbeer:

Thanks for the great comments all. Glad you enjoyed it. The only thing that could have made it any better is bright sunlight on him to show off his colors better.

I think that was my most exciting turkey hunt. One reason being he was sooo close and in full strut with the blind window WIDE open. I thought for sure he'd catch me drawing the bow. He had to be pretty focused on that decoy.

:thumbs_up :thumbs_up

i'm new to turkey hunting, started this year and killed my first bird this year. I was told that when a bird is coming in and fired up their head and necks get quite red. This bird didn't show that, is that normal?
