Who is going to shoot one if you get the chance during archery season, and who is going to go with a shotgun during fall turkey season and try to kill a couple? Count me in as usual. goal #1 is a longbeard (never kilt one in fall) and goal #2 is no poults. Yeah it's hard to tell sometimes. Also need a couple hens for the wing bones to make calls. Who's in? Before you say "it's not the same as spring" I know that, it's FALL season. So who is in?

We usually have anywhere from 75 to 100 hens on our place during the fall. If the opportunity presents itself and I am craving some turkey breast I may stick ONE, but no more than that. I have my own reservations about fall turkey hunting in TN which is for anther topic.

But to each his own, if its legal than there is nothing I can say to stop someone. I just dont want to hear them gripe come spring time.

I sure hope to! I have about 60 using one of my food plots. Remember that this year the bow bird also counts toward your fall gun hunt totals. So if you do get one say in Bedford County then come gun season you will only be able to harvest 5 instead of 6.

Its not the same as spring. \:D

If I bow hunt and if a long beard came thru I'd fling an arrow at him. Won't go after them with a shotgun. Tried it several times and didn't like it in the fall.

I would LOVE to get a tom or 2 with my bow. I probably will not go out with a gun, but definately if the chance presents itslf with my bow.

I already have the spot picked out for the fan mount, despite what my wife wants \:\)

I passed on a tom at 15 yards yesterday in hopes of a deer instead. Guess I should have taken the tom.

There are 3 dustbowls in a clover plot within 20 yards of a groundblind i put up a couple weeks ago. If one shows up, im drawing. If not, Im relying on catman for a couple hen wings for calls.

I let the first one pass yesterday at 15 yards. The flock presented themselves this evening at 35 yards and I couldn't help myself. Love the sound of that broadhead when it strikes...even recovered the bolt/broadhead to kill again another day.

Can you shoot a turkey with a bow before the fall season starts with a shotgun. The region 4 office says you can't but the handbook says different

Yes, you can take up to your full county limit with a bow during the archery only deer season. Any turkey killed with a bow counts toward your fall limit. They must have misunderstood your question at Region 4.

No, no pic. I quickly retrieved him and got back in the shooting house. It was dark when I went home. All I have left is breasts in the fridge and the head in the freezer. I have a taxidermist friend who I save good un-damaged heads for.

So you shoot spotted fawns but draw the line at shooting poults?

I killed my first one Saturday. It was a small hen, but I was tickled. I though about keeping the wings for a call, but she was covered in ticks.

You only use the bones inside. Ticks won't hurt a thing. Send em my way.

yep just cut the first three bones out or just boil the wings and then you can eat the meat (its good) and clean out the marrow and bleach em just a little, cut to fit together, superglue, and finish.

I know the bones wouldn't be affected. I just didn't feel like handling the bird any more than I had to. The call would have been rather, ahem, high pitched if you know what I mean.

Took a nice plump hen with my Xbow Saturday at 32 yards AND then flat out missed a big doe at 25. Drives me nuts sometimes (ha).

I had one near me Sunday but never got a chance at a shot. Taking one with a bow is a serious challenge, and those that have a applaud you.

Thanks for the comment. That is one of the best about hunting in TN. During bow season turkey are fair game. 3rd year in a row for me. I’m not big fan of “deer calls” except a grunt once in a while. But I have found that a few “clucks” now and again tend to keep the deer close by. Confidence builder, if deer hear turkey they tend to thing the area is safe. Well works for me. I’ll even set out a few decoys. When stalking during the daylight make like a turkey scratching around.
