    I wish we could shoot more then one bird here. Honestly I dont know what hen decoy that is. I am pretty sure its just a cheap cabelas one. We bought it honestly probably close to 10 years ago now, but she still works like a charm every spring. DSD decoys are really nice I just have a hard time paying that much for one but im sure times when those birds hang up it could help some.

    Same here. I would love to shoot more than one bird with my bow. It isn't like we don't have birds because we see a flock of around 10 toms every spring.

    I am hoping to get on this bird this spring if he survives this crazy winter we are having. You may be able to tell he has multiple beards. I have more pictures of him through the fall. Never have shot a multi bearded bird. Hope this is my spring!

    Around here we have a lot of mixed white birds and thats my goal for this year. That would probably be the only turkey I would mount.

    Had an Amish buddy take me last year bow hunting for a turkey. We scored a double that day - first bow birds for both of us. You can read about it here: Amish Turkey Hunt

    We just got hit with another 4inches of snow this weekend. I feel like spring wont be here till June this year. Been seeing a lot of birds out scratching through the snow looking for food

    A lot of first with this bird last year. First turkey hunt. First turkey kill first time hunting with that bow and first animal ever taken with a bow. Needless to say I was beyond excited and got bit hard by the turkey hunting bug.
