well fellas, i let us down this weekend. I had two toms in on me on seperate occasions. One i couldn't get a shot at, it was too thick. The other...which was a beast of a bird...i shot at but apparently it was too thick cuz i cut a couple of sapplings down and knocked the bird down but i'd say what little bit of shot made it through just hit him in the chest...that's a big no no. first turkey i've shot at and didn't get. was 5 for 5 in 6 years. Also, had one coming in but had a deer snort at me when the bird was close, needless to say the turkey didn't stick around.
