Just to say as well, I wasn't taking it that way from you..... just making it known to all. I realize everyone has an opinion, everyone is entitled to it as well. But thank you Sir.

But as with the life battles we must choose between everyday, we as hunters have to pick and choose those as well. As with the way the country is going, there are/will be sides.... when those sides are determined, we on our side must stand together and fight for the common good. Animal activists are working to ruin hunting just like the politicians are ruining our way of life, what we beieve in, and what we work hard for. When we start fighting amongst ourselves, they are winning.

7 yards, and about 60 yards. But the majority of my kills are between 25-35 yards.

One question on the 80 yard shot - Was it 80 yards by using a range finder or 80 yards by stepping it off?

If it was 80 steps, it is very possible because a normal step is only 30 inches long unless you are at least 6' 6" with extra long legs and if you are shorter than six feet tall, your stride may be even less than 30 inches. Then you add the contour of the land in (unless it is totally level) which would remove a few more yards. Therefore in my calculations, the 80 yard shot could very well be a mid fifty yarder. To me that is a bit too far but for some it isn't. I limit my shots to 45 yards which I have patterned my shotgun for. Mossberg 835, jellyhead choke, hevi 13 magblend shot.

The closest i've killed them have been within a hood length, and the farthest around 52 yds or so. IMO, there is a fine line between a turkey killer and a turkey shooter, with all of this long range talk. Just my .02 though...

Still amused by the 80 yard thing. I ranged 80 yards while hunting this morning, and chuckled.

Gimme a break....
