Fall Turkey Seasaon
« on: October 02, 2017, 08:26:23 AM »
My son had a very short fall turkey season this year. Our season started 10/01/2017 and I have been watching several birds for the past two weeks with one being a very nice bearded hen and a tom with double beards, both beards are 10 inch's or better I believe. along with several other toms, jakes, and hens.

My son said he would really like to get the double bearded tom or the hen, which ever happened along first.

We sat up yesterday morning in out blind and he was ready with the new Ravin R9 crossbow as I was guessing the shot to be around 50-60 yards from our set up.

We had seen several toms and jakes early, but not the double bearded tom yet. Then some hens latter in the morning and of course the bearded hen was one of them. They ended up at 20 yards from us when my son let the bolt fly and the bird hit the ground and was done. First bearded hen for my son and she has a 9 inch beard and first kill for the new Ravin R9 crossbow. Know we are headed for deer the rest of the season.

Nice job!  Seen bearded hens quite a few times from the house, but never while hunting.

Congrats to him - a unique trophy for sure.  We used to see quite a few bearded hens in the past, but it's been several years now since I've seen one, and certainly haven't seen any with a 9" beard - that's pretty cool.
