There are few creatures more graceful than a turkey gobbler tricked out in his spring irridescence slipping down a hardwood ridge in the early spring foliage. "Clunky and lumbering" my asp.

Yea, I must have missed seeing the lumbering, clunking ones. The ones I see don't look big enough to eat you when you miss, but they can make you feel so small, then they would easily be able to pick you up and devour you like a little grub!
Good article.

I have to add another comment...I have been a bird watcher and photographer all my life. To me, hunting turkeys is like hunting dinosaurs....proof positive that birds descended from reptiles and dinosaurs. Watch a turkey walk....listen to a sandhill crane trumpet over the marsh...lsiten to a great blue heron croak as it lifts out of the marsh...no doubt about it, hunting turkeys is what our forefathers did 250,000 years ago...except, back then their prey could turn the table on them and eat 'em up if they made a mistake.

Ten years ago my wife bought me a Remington 11-87 in Mossy Oak camoflauge for a Christmas present (the next year it was a Ruger Silver Label)- I mount a 4x scope on it and have had great success with it. I have killed 7 toms in seven years with seven shots- I like the scope because of the aim point it provides....and, contrary to popular opinion, I hold the crosshairs on the tom's head and then, as I pull the trigger, raise it a tiny bit....no BBs in the breast meat, all 7 have been plucked and roasted whole- and, I know, one of these days I will miss one and kick myself in the butt, but, until then, I will do what I have been doing. I hold and shoot Remington's well- and it has only failed me once...a broken spring...in the thousands of rounds I have put through it.

This was an interesting review of some products that are available to turkey hunters in 2010.

Thanks for the good work.

Charlie, I will agree. I don't think they are talking about the Easterns we have in Oklahoma.

"a clunky, lumbering bird"???
Turkeys are called lots of names but clunky & lumbering isn't a description I think of.

What kind of turkeys are you hunting? LoL
