Awesome that you took him with a recurve!
So far this season I've taken a jake with my shotgun, but tomorrow I plan on getting out there with my old Ben Pierson. Did you build your call for this one? What did you use?
A combination of a box call and a wingbone call on this one. He came in twice. After calling for about 45 minutes, the first time he did not make a sound and surprised me a bit. I took a shot a missed. Then I started calling again and he stopped about a 100 yards out. I called several times and he started back. The I shut up and waited. Took him nearle an hour to return. At time I could see him milling around about 50 yards out. I stayed quiet and he finally got greedy and had to come back to find that hen. The second time I shot I did not miss.
Two Washington toms I got two years ago. Shot one with my 12 gage muzzle loader and the other one with my 12 gage. Now that I moved across the State it's hard to get home to hunt for turkey's. Gas money and all.
Try to put your tree stand in a tree with plenty of background cover, keep the prevailing winds for that time of the year to your face, and take care of those pesky squeaks and creaks your stand may have developed while sitting in the shed. A good treestand lube can be made by heating petroleum jelly until it reaches a liquid form. Some hunters have reported success by including a cover scent in this mixture before applying it to their stands.
