    My grandfather always took a hatchet or axe and cut the head off

    I happen to agree with 99explorer I carry a NAA Black widow for snakes and what not the first 2 rounds I always keep bird shot which have come in handy especially at close range. The guns are relatively inexpensive considering you get the long rifle & magnum cylinder it might be something to look into.

    I know in Pennsylvania, you're allowed to carry a pistol while turkey hunting, but only during a small game season, so I just step on its neck, then, if it has'nt died, I wring it's neck until it dies.

    I just put my boot on his neck until he's gone.

    I've known of several different cases of hunters hurt (none seriously) by wounded/dying game animals. Fortunately, I'm not among them.
    It's not because I haven't pulled my fair share of stupid stunts.
    Regardless of laws, I do carry a small .22 when hunting. (I have a CHL which makes it legal) I just think safety and ethics outweigh the consequences.
    But....that's my decision.

    bubba, the way he was tucked into that brushpile there was nowhere for him to go, fight or flight kicked in, and he had one option. i was an idiot for trying to grab his leg to drag him out.

    Was he actually trying to spur you or just thrashing trying to get away?
    I know, doesn't change the result, just curious.

    Ontario is correct. You better not be caught hunting with a handgun in New Jersey. You would be arrested on the spot.
    explorer is also correct. Other western states are more flexible with handguns used during hunting season. Some of eastern states are like Nazis Germany with their gun laws.

    When you shoot a wounded turkey and he is floundering on the ground from his nerves reacting just step on his leg. With my size fourteen boot he is not gone anywhere. If the turkey is wounded and able to run or fly, shoot him again.

    bubba ive had it happen to me...i was bowhunting a few falls ago for deer and a few turkey happen to come through. i shot a gobbler a little low and he ran into a brush pile. let him sit till nightfall then went in. i could see him in the brush, and with a flashlight in my mouth crawled in to get him. that sucker got me good when i grabbed for him. ended up having to keep the flashlight in my mouth and dispatch him with another shot from my bow.

    shoot 'em in the head again, or smack them in the head with a club like stick.

    Lay a long stick across their body, walk the plank and at the far end you'll find a turkey kabob. Minus the puncture wound that is. Then you can borrow Honkers dull gutting knife and lob off his head. sorry OH, I had to throw it in there.

    A .22 Magnum Pistol with CCI Snake Shot works every time on Snakes while Turkey Hunting and that Run away Gobbler!
    NOW check your local Laws, Here in Fl you can use almost every type of Bow or Fire Arm to Hunt Turkeys.
