I've killed them with both, but I don't want to downplay the challenge of hunting turkeys and say that one way is easier than the other. With that said, the gun gives you a little more room for setup errors. Meaning that, when I hunt them with my bow, it's out of a ground blind. Setting up the blind in the perfect spot is sometimes challenging, and repositioning during the hunt is just about impossible. With the gun, you can setup quick, move quickly if needed, and your range will be greater with the gun. Good luck.

I like to hunt them in the fall with a .22-250. Not many places can you use a rifle. With my rifle I just wait for one to stand still and drill him in the neck. In places I cant use a rifle I use a shotgun. I have tried bow and they always busted me because I never use a blind.
