Default Turkey Hunt'n

I plan on hunt'n turkey with just my bow, anyone else ?
I am also confused about something I read.
Can you hunt hogs while turkey hunting ? The game management rules seem to be conflicting with one another. At least that's the way I read them, can we hunt hogs too ? Dang, would'nt that be way too cool !!!
Anyone know about this, is it true ???

I was just thinking yesterday about trying for a turkey bird with my bow this year.

I think it is legal because TBG is having a hog and turkey hunt scheduled.

I will not be bow-only for the toms. I like hunting them with the shotgun too, but you sure have my respect for going bow- only. That would be awesome to limit out with any bow, but to do it with trad bows qould be extra special.

Go get 'em fflint.

It is my understanding of the regs that you can hunt hogs during turkey season but only with those weapons/rounds that are legal for turkey.
My son plans on taking his bow. I told him that just as he gets ready to draw on a bird that is about 20 yards from him, I'm going to let him have it with the ol scatter gun.

He told me I was a bad father.

Yes you can hunt hogs with a bow during turkey season. I plan on doing a little of that myself.

I will be hunting turkeys strickly with the longbow this year. I tried last year but was unsuccesful but it was my first time ever turkey hunting and you might say I had no idea how to use a diaphram call. I was probably scaring every turkey in the county away. LOL

I am hoping with My ASAT 3d suit, someone who is gonna call for me (you reading this Major, LOL) and a little more turkey knowledge it will be a better year.

I'm trying birds with bow for the first time this year. I bought some of those spring-things that go behind your broadhead to keep it from passin' thu a bird... but my dad went and entered us a contest on another thread, so if it gets mid-season with no birds, I'm goin' back to the shotgun!

Anyone one got any good advice of a place near Gwinnett? I'm gonna try Allen Creek this weekend, but I've heard mixed reviews on it's turkey populations. Dang, I gotta move some where with more critters and less subdivisions!

The best way to kill a Turkey with a stickbow or any thing for that matter is to know where they are before season, have you a few gobblers in different areas located far from easy access, if you have a boat the wma`s on rivers are good and get yourself a pop up blind. I have killed birds with out one but you will start hating Turkeys after a while. I killed one at ten steps yesterday with my recurve if I can figure out how to do pics from a disc I`ll post`em for ya`ll. I was in my brickhouse blind and shot him through the net at ten steps and he folded right on the spot. Ten inch beard and 1.25 hooks.Drilled him with a muzzy phantom.Sweeeeeeet.RC
