wow...I never came back to this thread till now...ya I thought he was 45 or so, he was up a very steep incline on field edge. Could not believe when I paced it off. killed him dead.
Wow, ya'll went and got yer undies in a bunch over that??
Ive absolutely DUSTED a gobbler at 30 yards, took feathers off, looked like he exploded...and HE FLEW AWAY! set his wings and floated down the coulee a half mile...onto land we not have permission to hunt. I bet he never recovered. That was the only one I can say I never killed.
Same gun, same choke, same ammo. Go figure.
