James Patch sent a short report and photo of his mid-month New Hampshire bow turkey taken during the Granite State archery-only season:
Had some success today in NH in way of a 12 lb hen. I will confess that two other arrows were launched earlier in the week without cutting a feather! These guys that sit in tent blinds to hunt birds with bows because “it’s challenging” need to leave that blind at home if they want a challenge. Plunking your butt up against a tree and drawing your bow on a flock of birds is definitely challenging . . . and fun! I even left my cushion in the truck this morning so my butt was a little sore by 7:30 am when the birds finally showed. It all worked out though.
