Our last set up of the 2017 season didn't work out. We had to find a spot out of the wind, and this spot definitely holds birds, as evidenced by the group of birds we ran off when we got here and the sign. It was a spot we heard birds the first morning while scouting, but they didn't cooperate this time. Mark it down, I will kill a bird here at some point in the future. Tina Scott is having a tag sandwich, but it is a deluxe given we had a bird in easy shotgun range this morning, but her choice was bow only. Still, a great few days spent in NE. One great bird down, awesome weather, a night of bowfishing with Matt John, and tons of gobbling and strutting witnessed. ...

My view today is behind the cam. That means Tina is up. Time to put the first notch on that purple @newbreedarchery Nemesis! I offered to bring my turkey gun out of retirement, but bow or bust for her. ...

It took a lot of debating, but finally at last minute Tina Scott and I decided to head back to NE to see if I could fill my last turkey tag and one or two for her. Very late season and shotgun hunters occupying a few of my favorite properties meant spending the first half day doing long range scouting and listening would be the best bet. By ten that morning we had several gobblers located and I felt like I had a plan that would work out if the birds were interested. That evening was cloudy, windy, and very chilly but birds were gobbling all afternoon in all directions. After a couple hours two birds answered my calls behind the blind and within no time climbed the steep creek bank behind us and sprinted to the strutter deke. It was a scramble to get the video camera rolling, made worse because I scraped the tripod with my bow stand leg and both birds weren't having that. They didn't spook bad but decided to leave, and I shot one as it walked away with a perfect head shot. The second bird almost came back to give a Tina a shot but he just couldn't make his mind up, so we will be back after them today. Equipment note: I used a Magnus Broadheads Bullhead for this hunt, shooting an old Jim Daughtery grey aluminum shaft, with full length parabolic feathers, trimmed to allow the drop away to load. Magnus is not a sponsor, but a good product and great customer service deserves a shout out too. Of course, I used my faithful Hot Shot Archery X-Spot release and New Breed Archery GX2, the same combo that has served me well all spring long. This is my 5th archery bird of the 2017 spring and unfortunately, last. I am already looking forward to 2018! #hotshotarchery #turkeyhunting #cantstoptheflop #nohypejusthunt ...
