Turkey #2

Postby doc_holliday13 » Mon May 03, 2021 2:34 pm

Busted a 2nd Turkey within a week here in VA

I'm finally able to start taking video so i'm working on splicing it all together. This hunt was special because my step-son was able to come along with me. He recorded video using my phone and I had the GoPro on my gun.

40 yard headshot. many visible holes
15 1/2.lb live weight
7/8" Spurs
Double beard. The longest one is 7"

I didn't see any other hits on the body but because it was such a great hunt i decided to keep the wingbones to make a call for my step son. While fleshing the bones, I found a single #8 pellet lodged in the thicker part of the head of the biggest bone in the wing. I'll see if I can keep apart of the the call when I assemble the call.

Handload 1oz #8 TSS
28g Beretta A400
Carlson Turkey Choke .505
