Ive seen 3 big boys running around every time I go down to the river. The only problem is they are in a no hunting area on post. I dont really like to turkey hunt in the fall but if they walk under my stand I will shoot at them with my bow but I have yet to get one with the bow. Maybe this will be the year.

I love watching them in the feilds .... in all my years of hunting them thou I only got a Jake when i was 13 ... that my only bird ... someday I will get a Big Tom ... but for now just watching them is more than enough enjoyment

here in PA fall season you can shoot a Hen or Gobbler .... in the spring you can only shoot a Gobbler ... personally IMO they talk more in the Fall than spring and it seems that they spook easier in the spring too .... this maybe because they cant see what they maybe are talking too im not sure ... both seasons are fun to hunt in ... but its been a long time since i got my first and only bird .. (a Jake when i was 13) I enjoy watching them in either season
thou its easier to see them in the Fall (because of less cover)
PS : the only other real difference here in PA between the 2 seasons is that in the spring you have to use a shotgun to harvest a bird .... in the fall you can use a small bore rifle or shotgun ... we also have a 1 bird limit per season

I havent been getting any turkey pictures on my cam, just lots of deer. I shot a hen last year with my bow, but she kicked the arrow out and flew away. Never could find her. I'll shoot one this year if i see one again.

i just thought i would ask what would be a good draw weight for hunting turkeys with a bow? hunting them with shotguns is hard enough so i want it harder. when i get some money comin my way i think i will be looking into buying a bow for turkeys. i saw a good lookin one at cabelas a while ago and its small so i thought that would be good for movin through the brush but i dont know what would be a good weight for turkeys a little help.
