Long Beards with the bow

Recommended Posts

How many plan on taking a long beard with your bow? I have always gone after them first with my compound then the smokepole after taking one with the bow first.

 

This year gonna try for the first one with my bow but this time my recurve.i am excited since it's a whole new ball game with the recurve as most of you know very well.

 

So just wanted to see how many will chase the dirty birds with bows?

 

SS!

Cool WILL !!!!!!!!!!!! told ya last year to give the recurve a try. Its a little tougher especially with a blind because the bows are longer and it limits which window you can shoot out of.

My 64" was almost touching the ground , and the center of the roof at even a hard canted draw.

but shooting a turkey with it with a bullhead was COOL

Haven't turkey hunted much in the last five years or so but the last few times I did go, I used my bow and killed a few longbeards. It was a blast.


Here is a short clip version of what was a 7+ minute video of two hunts. During a computer change-over, I lost alot of the files and had to cobble together this short from just a few clips. Came out okay.

 

Called the bird in and shot him at 30 yards. Watched him fly 15 yards and go down. You can hear him crash just before the squirrel barks.

Great videos -- all of them. I may go out with the bow once the season gets rolling -- not sure if I'm going to take the chance on opening day. Did that last year and that gobbler came from the one location where I could not draw on him. If I had the shotgun, it would have been over in minutes.

I'd love to shoot one with a bow but I don't have anywhere to hunt them right now. I'm hoping to pick up a new hunting spot soon. Just have to get together with the landowner. We both have very busy schedules. Hopefully soon!!!!

Try to take one every year, with a bow, smokepole and shotgun. Last year I added a Xbow to the mix.

 

Black powder is the most fun, except when the cap goes pop LOL
