I would have to think that a good percentage were taken by bowhunters in tree stands. That's how I took mine. It's not the traditional way, but for my first bow killed longbeard, I'll take it any way I can. It did have somewhat of a spring feel to it though. The entire hollow was filled with gobbles, and the one I shot only gobbled twice, but spent the early morning strutting in a tree about 50 yards behing me.
