Tips for Taking Turkey With a Bow

If you enjoy challenges then I’ve got one for you. Try taking a turkey with a bow this fall. Turkeys are programmed to look up because that’s where hawks and owls come from so forget the hunting tree stand.

You need to be on the ground to locate them and find out where they are going. Get yourself between where they are and where they want to be. Then wait for them to get there, draw when they’re not looking, and pick a spot.

It’s sure not easy! The turkey’s defenses are extremely keen and I can almost guarantee you that if they could smell, you would never shoot one with a bow. So, yes it’s tough hunting, but the challenge to take a turkey with a bow is certainly worth it and a whole lot of fun.
