PSR Wins - Old Vet

At 7:15 on Tuesday the 22nd, three nice longbeards entered the edge of the field out of the timber. A couple soft yelps had them headed to my lone decoy. They were all three carbon copies as far as size and beard length. This old boy circled between the decoy and my blind, offering a 12 yard quartering away shot, his head raised about half way. The PSRV put the Zwickey Delta tipped 2213 through the base of his head. He hit the ground and wing flopped until he expired. Lots of good eating and some new feathers for my arrows. Thanks Black Widow!

Great bird Old Vet (aka dad). Tuesday morning those three long beards were like the three amigos. After you got that one and I shot mine this morning, they are down to the lone ranger. Haha ! It hasn't been a bad season so far.

Another picture that shows the bird and PSRV better. Love the longbow style grip on this light 50s style recurve. Points and shoots where you are looking.

Good job anchoring that gobbler! I've got turkey in the crockpot right now and it is smelling really good.

Thanks Denny. I am partial to head/neck shots when they are close enough. The bird you got the other day didn't look like he flopped around too much either. Crockpot turkey sounds good, when is dinner?
