Wisconsin Bird

Recommended Posts

This is the gobbler that my Uncle shot on Saturday, in Wi. The weather was terrible. 2'' of snow and 20-30 mph winds. We had 6'' of snow by Sunday. I didn't have a tag, so I did the calling for him and his son. He shot him at 40 yards with a facefull of Win. Hi-Velocity #6's, Hastings .660 choke, out of a Nova. Graveyard dead. I love this stuff..Mike

Good luck to you, D.U. This bird was shot in Florence Co. The northeast part of the state. I hope the weather clears for you. My nephew has a tag for this Wed.>Sun. He hunts in the Green Bay area, and they are supposed to get slammed again today and tomorrow with 6-10'' of snow. This madness has to stop.. Mike

Just a tad under 10''. He was awful wet, so the beard looks a little spindly. It actually was a pretty thick beard. He weighed 18#, and had 1'' hooks..That's a pretty good gobbler for up there. They don't get real heavy..Mike

Nice bird!

We got one from our usual accessible by boat only honey hole this morning.

My buddy killed it with his old 20 ga. single shot.

 

Got a good setup on another one and I killed a couple of saplings with an ill-advised shot at a spooked bird.

Thanks, Tucker. Seems like we see a turkey in your boat, every year. You build a moat around your favorite spot?:D Good luck to ya the rest of the season..Mike

Nice bird - your uncle owes you one;)

I wholly concur. Some folks like seeing a successful hunt, just because.
