I figured somebody would have posted some pictures of birds they'd shot. Here's my Colorado gobbler from last monday. Post them up if you've got some :thumbsup: This bird weighed in at 25lbs

Lots of turkeys in Colorado. Especially Colorado Springs, south towards Pueblo :thumbsup:

Wait til a windy day and stalk them. That's what I did on that Merriam. Ended up 10 yds away from his hens and about 30yds from him and his buddy. Took over 30 minutes to go 200 yds so just take it slow and they don't notice you because everything else is moving in the wind

Turkey have a brain the size of a pea. How hard can killing one be. I killed mine with a bow at Kansas. First bow kill ever, I missed the first shot. But I know what I did and killed him. He went 50 yards and died. there was 4 Jakes and the big boys were with the hens. But I had no time before my job start in Colorado to hunt.

They may have a small brain but they have great eyesight. They're also really fast. Scott I tried the spot and stalk method and I just ended up chasing them up mountains and let me tell you, they can move up a hill a lot quicker than I can :lol3:
