(Near)The turkey was only 30 yards and met some #4's out of my shotgun. (Far)The coyote later in the morning, as I was headed out, met my 30.06. He was a little trickier. Hitting a coyote on the run, at just over 300 yards, on the first shot, is a pretty fair trick. I have no idea how many turkeys I've killed, but it's a bunch. I haven't eaten a turkey tag in over 10 years and most years I kill two (sometimes a 3 or more if I hunt out of state.) Of those turkeys I've killed Merriams, Easterns, and one Rio. I got to say that I have to agree with Ian McMurchy on some comments he made under another thread in regards to turkey hunting. They just aren't that tough to get compared to other critters. Trust me, busting that coyote was waaaaaay more challenging, than this love-sick tom. Turkey hunting is fun to some degree, but once the ticks and snakes are out, I lose interest pretty fast. To each their own.
