I want to try it with a bow this year, but I'm going to get a couple with the gun first.
Ask your doctor if your heart is healthy enough for turkey hunting

I struggle shooting comfortably from a covered ground blind too tight. I like hunting from my climber once I know where the girls are.congo

I have been fortunate enough to take 9 birds in the last 3 years with a bow. 6 with a blind and 3 without. My success without a blind involved deep creek ditches, cedar trees (Nebraska) and field edges with decoys. I use a DSD jake/submissive hen setup. I love to hunt this way. However, its far easier using a blind, especially when trying to hide a camera man at the same time. Im sure my numbers would be a few higher if i was going after them solo with no blind.

Another option i use is from www.elkmtngear.com . They have a very impressive umbrella style blind, called the slip system. I use the camo cover on it and carry it with me while run & gunning. This makes all the difference in drawing a bow and/or hiding camera guys.


Good luck, an Osceola is waiting for me in a couple weeks to finish my archery G Slam! :D
