Good customer Tyler Arnold sent us this story about his first turkey with a recurve. He did it the hard way too, no blind with a stickbow!
Check out his story and his bird:
Hey thought I would share a pic of the bird I shot on Easter Sunday. I was hunting by myself so I don't have a very good picture with me and the bird. It was my first turkey with a recurve. It was an awesome hunt.
The hunt took place up in Nebraska. I spotted the birds around 11am and decided to make a move on them. They had a fire up there last summer which burned up a lot of their ground but the turkeys are still hanging around there. I got down in a little burned up cedar draw and set my decoy up and started to call. Within a few minutes the flock was on its way. I posted up behind a burned up cedar and waited for the action. I had six big toms and a dozen hens come within 12 yards but I couldn't get a shot without spooking them, so I stayed patient and waited for the rest of them to come. A tom finally strutted by around 15 yards but there was too many branches in the way to shoot. He strutted over towards my decoy but I still couldn't get a shot. I waited and he came back by in front of me and stopped at 15 yards in full strut. I leaned out around the tree I was sitting behind, picked a spot and let it fly. I hit him right at the base of the neck he ran up the hill about 20 yards and hit the dirt. It was an awesome hunt and one I will never forget. That Blackwidow recurve has been very good to me!
