Hunting Photos

I thought maybe everyone might want to share their hunting photos and a description of the weapon and ammunition used.
You gonna pull those pistols or whistle Dixie?

Very nice man! :thumb: Glad I'm not the only one to post pictures. I understand the left handed issue. I'm right handed, but left eye dominant, so I know where you're coming from.

Thanks.
Beautiful whitetail by the way, and excellent choice in caliber.
The 7mm, although a shoulder thumper, is a sweet round for dropping game in their tracks.

Out of all the game I have taken with a bow I am most impressed with a turkeys ability to deflect or take a direct shot from a high powered bow.
I use a 70lb bow and when I first started hunting turkeys there were several humble experiences of lost birds when I drilled them with several different broadheads (standard muzzy, rage, and rage turkey).
Since then I have focused more on my calling and better decoys to get the birds in closer and try to use a standard guillotine.
The extra large (2"+) are just too unruly for me and I tend to cut up my blind, myself and my cloths while getting them ready for the shot. My hunting buddy uses them but I'm too much of a klutz.
If you can hit an orange size target consistently, while sitting in a blind, wearing full face and hand coverings, and can get the birds in under 20 yards, then there is no substitute to the effectiveness when using guillotines on turkeys.
You either kill the bird or miss clean. Its pretty easy to miss and you need to take extra care in putting the BH together.
However... you get 100% arrow recovery and the birds are perfect with no holes to prohibit your desired cooking method.
If you can't meet those guidelines above I would stay with a standard muzzy tri-blade (tri cut tip is preferred over pencil point) or standard Rage.
I use Rage bh's for longer shots, excitable birds, in heavy wind, or if I feel funny about my shot.
Shot angle needs to be broadside or you run the risk of deflection due to their thick feathers, the farther your target the more this becomes important.
The bird in the pic above was taken with a Rage at 4yrds.
In the pic above my quiver has: 2 x Rage, 2 x Guillotines and a Muzzy for good measure, ha ha.
Last bit of lessons learned... Keep your broadheads razor sharp and in good order.
Turkey feathers are incredible at deflecting even the best shots on a moving, bobbing, pea brain tom.

Sorry about the derail...
Excellent bird pics guys. There is just something special about bird hunting that I really enjoy.

Not getting any Rages, mechanical broadheads are illegal here for large game & I know me - I'll get in a rush & grab the wrong one when the time comes :facepalm:

Thanks for the info, forgot about shooting with the face covering :ponder: haven't tried that yet.
