I learned a lesson today.... Beginners luck does not make you a pro.

I guess I thought I was ready to work a video camera and shoot a turkey at the same time. I took the cross bow out today and decided I was going to try and film it. Didn't work out. Was fiddling with the camera and missed an opportunity to shoulder my crossbow. By the time I got it up, it was 30 yard shot. I would like to think I can make that shot all day long but I was a little shakey and the gobbler had just come in so I thought he might come back in. Nope. He walked away and would not come back. He met up with a couple hens.

Anyway, tomorrow, hopefully he won't be so lucky. Good news is I got some video to share of this guy.


And, I'm new to turkey hunting and I'm not a good judge of size. Is this a good sized turkey or not?

I love it! He keeps looking back at the decoy like he is expecting her to follow him.

Alright! Good job! Since you won't need it the rest of the season, mind sharing some of that good luck? ;)

Can't wait to see the video and pics!

Sorry, I gotta hang on to the luck before it runs out... I'm hoping I have enough to make it to summer walleye time.
