      Im no turkey hunter, but know how to hunt em, killed a few.

      Can hunt them 10 mins from my house. But bud and I drive 3 hrs one way to a tick infested public land hell hole.

      Because killing a tom there makes it a trophy.

            jimbo, look at post #2 and post #14 on page one.

            Same words, same little "i".

            DARKIYAT is a "bot".
            Probably "admin" trying to stir up activity or an attempt to hijack the sight by those best Bangladesh "Packers & Movers".

              Hard to knock a bot when 10% of forum movement is generated by a couple auto posts LOL.

              This site aint exactly bubbling w participation across varied topics.

              TDS rules the " other ".

              A friggin turkey thread gets bumped to active by some far eastern bot. Where the hell is your thanksgiving spirit?

              Am not gonna call fowl on an eastern bots turkey thread post.....not gonna cry cultural appropriation

                  No, actually it isn't.

                  The NWTF keeps records. Check out their website for records and forms for submitting your bird.

                  My records are:
                  23 pounds
                  12 inch beard
                  2 beards
                  1.25 inch spurs
                  ...and 1 bearded hen.

                  For a long time, the heaviest bird taken was a 36 pound Rio!

                    My 1st year getting into turkey hunting, I shot 1 with a 10.5" beard with the Beretta. The past 2 springs I shot 1 each year for the past 2 years with 3" - 4" beards with a bow, in Michigan, where the DNR claims a 30% Hunter success rate. All 3 birds, trophies

                      Any legal bird in hand is a "trophy"! LOL!
                      Took a 13# jake that ate like a 3# fryer!

                        Absolutely, a bird is a bird, and with a 30% Hunter success rate here, any legal bird in hand I do consider a trophy

                          Ive killed turkeys and deer, enough that method doesn't dictate trophy status.
                          Difficulty can factor in, but beating a low general success rate alone doesn't
                          qualify it.

                          I hunt a hell hole, massive public pressure. A jake there is still a jake and I won't shoot one no matter how frustrated.

                          Am content to go home empty handed.
                          Mature tom there, while an accomplishment, still won't be a trophy unless he's a 2nd yr tom.
                          Which means proly 24#

                          See what happens this April.
