Marcus Aurelius: This is why many serious hunters have given up casual hunting.  Most people suck at it.


Bingo! I used to bow-hunt, years ago. (Most of my family hunts - my parents still hunt, even though they're in their late 60's.) Casual hunters, particularly those using firearms, are a pain in the ass.

One of my brothers bagged his 1st wild turkey last month, with a 12-gauge at 20 yards.

/I've only helped kill a bottle or two of that stuff

TheMysteriousStranger: When I lived in Northern Michigan during the 70s and 80s, during hunting season hunters were required to wear orange vests to prevent that sort of thing.    And parents did not allow their kids to go into the woods when it was legal to hunt deer with a firearm.


You can't wear an orange vest while turkey hunting, at least, not if you expect to get any turkeys.  Unlike deer, turkeys have excellent color vision.

That's why there is the campaign about "Stalking Stinks" in relation to turkeys:  Everyone is wearing camouflage so that the turkeys don't see them, and if you're chasing a turkey (ie., stalking one), and you come up on a clear shot on a turkey and you hear it gobble, or cluck, or putt, or whatever, you might just be shooting at a decoy and a camouflaged hunter in the bush near it.

On the other hand, if all turkey hunters called turkeys into them and didn't go chasing them, accidents like that wouldn't happen.

mod3072: Article says BB gun, but I'm wondering if it's bad journalism,


It's *TYPICAL* journalism.

Displaying the "fan", the tail feathers of the turkey.  It's a typical pose for a successful turkey hunt.

Mistaken for a Turkey?

They all look like jackasses to me.

Like everyone else, I am sure it was a shotgun, but one of these would also do the trick:

jayg22: I am sure the mean shot (which look like BBs) from a shotgun.  Which most people use to hunt turkeys with.


I don't hunt, so I am a moron about things like this. When a shotgun is used to hunt, wouldn't it riddle the bird with shot, making it inedible? Isn't shot often made of lead, too?

A turkey gun has a longer barrel with  tighter choke.

What this means to a non shooter is that the shot keeps closer together in a tighter group for a longer distance. Turkeys are usually taken with a head shot so biting a pellet is less of a worry. Happens all the time with grouse and pheasant though.

You're an idiot. Please don't vote (or breed).
