Default First turkey with a bow!

After several frustrating hunts this season with gobblers in and not being able to get a shot off, I finally got my first bow turkey!


The husband is gonna KILL me but I want a full strut turkey REALLY bad! We will see...

A full strut turkey mount would be really cool. Congrats on the kill!

Congrats! Tough one to mark off the list!

I had a full strut mount done a few years ago. Came back looking like crap and celebrating the 4th of July! By far the worst looking mount I have ever had done. Research and find a good taxi!

Congrats. There is nothing that makes a bowhunter feel like they have earned it more than a turkey with the bow. Hunting them can be so frustrating at times, but when it all comes together it's a really big accomplishment. Great work, hope you end up with a cool mount as well.
