    Mrs. Thumbcocker got a turkey

    18 yards from the ground blind. She waited and got a perfect shot. She was thrilled when she called me.

    You can see the feathers in the foreground. I think the smile says it all.

    Nice! I gave a Tom a haircut last night with an arrow. Knocked off one feather. He started walking when I let my arrow fly and I didn’t put a lead on him.
