Plucked it at camp, sorry but not much video on this process. I just get wrapped up on the task.


Thanks for looking!

Did those giblets get ravaged that night or are you saving them for the dressing?  That turk looked like a good eater, too.   We've  got lots of turkeys around here, but  I have never hunted them......that might change, though, since the big EHD die-off of the deer herd the last couple of years.   Do you roast the bird whole or bone it out? ???

Now that is good to go right there!!!  Most, most excellent,


Congrats on the turkey!  Taking a turkey with a bow is something I've never done,
but I'd bet it's a lot harder than with a firearm.

Maybe this will work.

Good hunt and outting. you'll have to post over in the food section when you prepare that bad boy.

Thanks.  I have killed a lot of turkey but never with a bow.  That is job well done.

Thanks everyone! I had a great time again. All the meat and other parts were saved for Thanksgiving! I'll have to try and remember to make a post on the cooking of it ;)
