Gearing Up For Turkey’s

Recommended Posts

I have not much use of my Left Arm. I can hold a Gun up bracing my Left Elbow on my Chest this has always worked good with Rifles but not real good with Heavy 12Ga. Shotguns.

As I have posted before I have a 20Ga. Full Choke, with Scope I use with Slugs. Thinking of just using it. Got a Modern 12Ga. But it is just too heavy. Got a Light 12Ga. Muzzleloader, it shoots out 40 yards great but like I say it is light as matter fact too light.

So need to figure out a Gun.

Calls I no longer have teeth so I can’t get a Diaphragm Call to work. So I’m using either Slat or Box.

It is much easier for me to set on a Stool I have then setting on the ground.

I know it would be better hunting from a Blind but I’m unable to pack it out. Not running and Gunning just can’t no more.

Once again open for ideas or forget this and just go Fishing? Killed plenty of Turkeys.

Well probably be dead before I heal. Going to have to learn to deal with one hand. Going to be better with Deer and one hand.

Getting interesting can’t load a Deer with two hands. Can’t jump up on a Tail Gate.

I usually tie one leg back when gutting so that should make it easier with one hand. Got a Deer Cart. Have to get a Wench to load one.

Oh let’s get back to Turkey. Usually cut unmeaty part of Wings off and Legs. Cut Skin in middle of Breast and pull it around.

Haven’t went last few years because of numbers. So might be better idea to go fishing.

Look at the tripods or even bipod they will support the shotgun and the tripods will hold it in place.  Might have a bit of reduction in maneuverability which can be a problem turkey hunting.  Lots of turkeys have been killed with a 20 ga.

Turkey hunting is fun, but it would just get fed to the dog around here unless I was truly hungry and in need of food.  Actually I might just eat the dog first.

Seen bunch just Breast a Bird but my wife beats the Thigs and Legs, breads them and Frys them up. We get 6 meals out of a Bird.

Only thing I couldn’t eat was an old Ram. It was just nasty. But yes the dogs ate good.

I’ve looked into Tripods and think might as well cut a forked stick and get the Blind out there.

Yelp killed many Turkeys with 20Ga.

Well my wife said save my money and time go fishing and mushroom hunting.

Supposed to see a Doctor on my Shoulder. I’m going to question him ask him what he thinks on it and tell him I need to get on with my life like hunting and fishing.

Tell him to quit dicking around and sign the necessary paperwork to put you on disability.   You ain't got no business "carrying weapons for your job" or none of that $#!t.    

Draw your checks and start tying jigs for those fly shops around there if you need a little extra fishing money.
