I can't stop laughing  --099-780 --099-780 however I can relate. Last year I made a similar shot, but not that far, only around 35 yards. The bird went right down and no flopping. I stood up looking at the bird that I thought was a perfect kill, I leaned the gun against the tree and started picking up my gear, calls, seat and vest. The bird got up and started running down the mountain. Grabbed the gun fired a quick shot and assumed that I had missed and the chase was on (down hill) I was making up ground, he jumped a log and I shot again, both of us still running,  -0078 I reloaded on the run and fired again with no luck, the bird now crossed over a small creek and started up the other side of the ridge, fired two more shots, (out of ammo) I did pretty well going down hill, but once he started up the hill I was losing ground FAST. Bottom line, I got some pretty nice feathers that were a lot easier carrying out of the woods than a fat old turkey. At 65 years of old and fat I'm not doing that again. (I Hope) One question for HM, What caliber is that club? I may look at keeping on close the next time.  --099-780 BTW- I did spend about 3 hours searching for the bird after my heart rate got back to near normal.
