Ontario Turkey Hunting Success

Send by email Printer-friendly version Share this

I'm a new Hunter at 44 years and this was the most amazing thing I have ever seen. I went out Turkey hunting and I was out about three times, outside a little town in midwestern Ontario Canada. I went and put a decoy about 20 yards in front of me and sat beside a small tree the sun was just coming up, and I sat for about 30 minutes, never heard or seen anything so I got up and moved my decoy walked up and down the field, went and sat back down again, called a couple time and nothing. Then off to the left side of me a big Tom dropped out of the tree, I almost jumped and I start shaking, my gun was on my lap and I didnt want to move. The Tom strutted back and forth I didn't think he was ever going to come, he made his way toward me. He was only 30 feet in front of me I couldn't move or he would be gone, I waited, then in a blink of an eye a hen ran toward him he turn his back to me I raised my gun I cluck once and he turned back towards me I was shaking so much I didn't think I would hit him and then it was over. He was 24 lbs, 10 1/2 beard, it was awesome.

Sounds like you might be

Sounds like you might be hooked. Now get up in a tree stand, grab a bow, and give deer hunting a try.
