I went on the annual Turkey hunt in Sadieville Ky and while my friend got a Jake, I missed. Danm. It was a nice tom. I was in a elevated deer stand and the bird walked to 40 yds. I squeezed and missed 2x. fruck. Can anyone tell me why its not legal or sporting to shoot a turkey with a .22 or .17 hmr.??? I am soooooo much more confidant with a scope and crosshairs... I guess I need to practice more with the scattergun. (Editors note: I was using the shotgun for the 1st time... Didnt fly with my ole 11-87 and my buddy had rounded up a couple of shotguns. a mossberg 500 (28" with a full choke) and a Benelli nova with turkey choke... But I missed with both so it wasn't the gun. Any advice on elevation hold of a 3 in #6 shot??? I was about 20 feet up and the distance from the bottom of the stand was about 35yd... but also the reason no rimfires/???
Although always described as a cowboy, Roswellnative generally acts as a righter of wrongs or bodyguard of some sort, where he excels thanks to his resourcefulness and incredible gun prowesses.
They have nice turkey paper targets now.
Its a rush just to be there and take the shot. Sounds like you did your part for conservation this time. Kudos to you for that!
You should then be able to see why that you missed 2 times
YOU MAY NEED YOUR BUTT KICKED EXTRA HARD!!
