Bushwhacking,ambushing,calling or flushing them quail its all turkey hunting.I have killed them on the fly up on the fly down and every way in between turkey hunting with a shotgun is to me as pure of a sport as it gets.Some people just claim to have called up every turkey they ever killed.

We ain't talking about Canadian Geese here. The typical male turkey has at least 4 pounds on the largest Canadian Geese out there. I have seen turkeys in flight shot at and hit, at least in-directly, 4 times and continute to fly with injury. They are large birds that are very tough (I recently went to combat with one hand to hand and I have a new respect for how tough and strong they are).

I do not agree with it, nor respect it. Take that for what it is, find offense if you interpret it to be such, crack a tooth on a turkey breast, or what is left of it, full of lead, watch one continue to fly off with a gimp wing and a set of legs that will still out run you.

Good point I never thought of... I'm not a good enough shot to shoot one on the wing anyway, but I would hate to wound one either way. I wonder if a 10 gauge 3.5" shell might possibly be a bit more ethical.... not to the hunter's shoulder though.

As for geese they are not that strong... I grabbed one by the neck once, pinned his wings down, held him under my arm for a pic and let him go unharmed \:D I'd love to grab a turkey by the neck and then shoot it, but maybe not one with big ole spurs... wonder if I could grab a hen from a blind in the fall? Might not turn over well with some people here though...

I saw a kid grab a Canadian Geese at a park one time and the Goose delivered its full "payload" all over the kid. I like eating eating Geese, but man, cleaning them.... whooo, they have some stinky arses.

\:D guess I was lucky then. I step in their darn "payload" every time I fish a pond. Have not hunted them before - would like to taste one sometime. Same with dux.

Many hunters will tell you that they are not good and that they are "sky carp", but don't let the words of our less-than-minimal-culinary-skilled brethren deceive you: they are as good as most ducks. The key, and this is true with any waterfowl, is to pluck them and keep the skin. Without the skin, they are useless for anything other than sausage making, stew/gumbo, making poppers with bacon, or pounding them out into razor thin pieces and frying them.

If you keep the skin on, you can serve up a whole Goose on Christmas day, serve roasted wings and legs, do all kinds of great meals. Again, though... they have some of the stinkiest innards around. When you cut into one's rear, you'll know exactly where all that "payload" comes from.

well I've heard good things about duck so I have to try sometime. Are wood ducks good eating? Thinking of floating my boat down the river a few times during wood duck/teal season and maybe getting one or two.
