Spot and stalk success. Shot taken at about 30 feet. 


When our governing officials dismiss due process as mere semantics, when they exercise powers they don’t have and ignore duties they actually bear, and when we let them get away with it, we have ceased to be our own rulers.

    It’s a Baikal 20ga SXS coach.  I wasn’t turkey hunting but I wondered how close I could get.

    Great Job
    I have only been Turkey hunting a few time and never had old Oceola Tom get anywhere near that close.

    Dang, snuck up on a turkey, nicely done. I assume you had grouse loads in the 20 ga. ? Did you give the turkey both barrels?

    Hell yeah!  Going old school.  Stalking Fall turkeys is a true art.

    That's nothing.  I was within a few feet of the same wild turkey several times today.   I find it helps a lot if they're already dead in the middle of the road, though. :)

    I've had turkeys strut by within a few feet of me when I was hunting deer and elk.  It's like they know they're safe.

    Regardless, well done.  Now I'm waiting on the range report on the culinary aspects of your kill.

    Nice hunt there !

    Just finished skinning my nephew’s doe. 👍

    The turkey story...the flock was in a grassy meadow. The grass was taller than the birds, so easy sneak. 

    Chiro - yes, I was carrying grouse loads but I didn’t need both barrels.
