Getting a tom the hard way.
© By Othmar Vohringer
Wild Turkey Fever reader Mike Carruth harvested this beautiful tom, what appears to be of the Merriam’s subspecies, in Placer County, California.
Unfortunately, Mike did not volunteer more information on the hunt other than that he harvested this gobbler with a compound bow, which is in itself a great achievement. His good friend Dan called the bird with a box call. The tom’s spurs measured 1.25” and he had a beard of an impressive 10.75”.
There is still time to take part in this contest and win a top quality Heirloom turkey call. For more information on how to take part click here! But hurry up it all ends on May 31, 2008.
