With your logic then hunting deer with a deer rifle is not Hunting. You should only hunt deer with a spear tipped with a flint stone head and fixed in place with pine tar and sinew. Otherwise its not deer hunting.I’m not being narrow minded, I’m just trying to explain to you guys that hunting turkeys with a rifle you miss the true spirit of Turkey hunting (period) . Turkeys in Texas and the mid west are easy prey to began with , add a rifle and it s no sport anymore.
I just love your sense of humor!I was audited by the IRS (ONCE) many years ago. Back in the days of slide rules. I had purchased one of the first 4 function pocket calculators. The auditor said it was NOT a tool of the trade (engineer) and I could NOT deduct it. He said, "You can do calculations with a pencil and paper." I argued that he let a carpenter deduct his hammer as a tool of the trade even though he could hammer the nails with a rock. It was a loosing argument in those early days.
If I hunted Turkey, which I dont, I would use a hand grenade. Cooks the meat and separates the pieces while plucking it.......
Here in Pa. you are allowed to use centerfire rifles during the fall season. It has been a few years since I have been out after them. I have taken 2 so far with a 220 Swift. I hunt fields and just wait them out, some do travel in the fields, then I'll go to work.
