Gun or bow?

I have shot one with a bow from a blind. Missed one a different year. I sighted in my bow the night before. Off a couple inches. "Sure I'll remember to hold off, no time to re-sight"

Of course I forgot to hold off...and I missed!

I would like to kill one with a bow but since I will be working hard public land bird here in MS that is nearly impossible. I will be packing the trusty shotgun. I might pack my 20 gauge a few times tho. It is a solid 40 yard shooter... no lie..

I have killed around 40 or so with a shotgun but this is my first year with a bow, I peeled a few feathers off a tom yesterday. I am going after him again tomorrow.

I have hunted turkeys with shotgun,rifle and bow and without
a doubt the hardest way to kill a turkey is with the bow.

During bow season I use the bow and a ground blind with camo
mesh over the windows, and shoot through the mesh. Before
this type of blind we used a tripod and it was very difficult because
when you drew the bow the turkey saw you and took to the air and
some times you had to shoot on the wing.

During deer season we use the rifle but head shots are the exceptable
and sporting way to take them considering 200yrd + shots are normal .
( Body shots ruin to much meat) and your buddies will give you a very
hard time.

To me the easiest way is with a shot gun. I must admit I use a 3 1/2"
12 gauge with 2 1/4 ounce #2's so range is out to 60 or 65yrds.

Note" With the bow I place a small aluminum washer behind the broad head
to increase the impact on the turkey and it puts them down fast.

Just my way of hunting turkeys
