Turkey season opened up today in PA for Spring Gobbler. I'm not much of a Turkey Hunting fan as I am Deer, but since they keep insisting on walking around my property, I might as well nab one of these Thunder Chickens right? Well, me and 4:30 in the morning don't get along well so I woke up around 8am and went on my back deck and called just to see if one is around. Well don't you know I have a taker....so I run in and put a shell in my 12 gauge and creep up closer. Mind you, I'm in a blue sweatshirt and sweat pants, no camo. So we exchange "Love" calls for about 15 minutes and what do you know, he comes walking out of the woods about 30 yards away. He started going away from me so I chirped a couple of times to turn him around. At about 25 yards, I got the bead on his head and BOOM!!!! I MISSED!!!!!!!! :eek: WTH?!?!?!? I NEVER miss! :bs:This can't be! Has to be the gun right fellas???? :D Anyone? Anyone?

You must have put a slug in, after all everyone knows all you have to do is point a shotgun in the general direction of your target and you can't miss. :r_c:

I figure you encountered Super Turkey out of his costume.

Superman Toy Fictional character Plush Stuffed toy

Or maybe you met up with another Turkey before getting your shotgun!

And there's always that famous Will Rogers explanation....."S--- Happens!"

I can't explain it, but last season I got two nice Toms while driving T posts for a new fence. Every time I hit the driver on the post, the Toms went crazy - they just came a-runnin. For the other guys on the lease, they were all decked out in the latest/greatest and drew a blank. Strange.

I'm gonna go with a combination of the attire and the fever. Two excuses are better than one. If at first you don't succeed, try again.
