Well it is February and that means March is right around the corner and every turkey hunter knows March is when Tom T. Turkey starts gobbling his head off in anticipation of meeting new girlfriends and doing the deed of procreating to keep his race alive. So with that thought in mind lets see some pic and here some stories from past seasons to help me make it through till the warmth of spring brings the distant music of the turkey gobble! [Smile]
Here is my first bow killed turkey from last season  -

I think we open on April 19 but Nebraska opens on March 27 and Kansas is April 1 for bows and I may just have to go scratch this itch I'm getting!

We don't open until April 10. Will be my first year after a trad turkey. With a no deer year behind me, I'm ready for gobbling.

You guys got it easy, we have to wait all the way until May 1st here in New York. Shot this guy last year at 15 yards after watching him walk in full strut across a 500yard long field. Man talk about gobbler fever, was shaking so hard thought my arrow was going to fall off the self. I've shot a lot of turkeys with the gun but this was my first with the bow and I am planning on trying to repeat it this year without the ad of the double bull blind. Going to be hard...  -

Nothing yet for me. This will be my 4th year with longbow. I really want those feathers from my 1st trad killed turkey for a couple of arrows I have planned for the upcoming deer season. Congrats you guys on your trophys.

I am looking forward to it. Got my first bird with trad bow, fall 2008, and 2009, got all 4 fall birds with a recurve, 2 during archery, 2 during shotgun season. Made my fall season!

We open in March here in Georgia. I have already done a little pre-season scouting just to get out of the house. I have located one group of gobblers that I am keeping tabs on. This will be the first year of chasing them with a recurve. I hope that I can hit one.

Hopefully, my new lefty Robertson longbow will make it by turkey season. If I only ever hunted where there were fall turkeys, the only deer I would shoot were the ones that got between me and the turkeys I was after. Can't wait, I am sooo sick of this deep snow.

I can hear it already! Plan on being in Nebraska the last week of April. Also got an IL permit for Mother's day weekend. What better way to celebrate the weekend then get my son out of momma's hair for a night and day! Well, that's how I sell it to her anyway! Got my first hybrid last year with my recurve. Hopefully another one this year along with an Eastern. Good luck to all.
