    "Oh, gosh, I get it now, you were being kind and not correcting me even though I had no idea what I was talking about and kinda got in your face"

    read 43 north's comments. Almost no one hunts turkeys with a rifle, they are shot at close range. Those are just facts.

    I could care less, I don't hunt turkeys, I doubt I will in the near future.

    Why you have to be so belligerent as to call me insulting just because I choose not to embarras you is beyond me. I usually reply to people with the best intentions. If I ever reply to you again please bear that in mind.

    How big is your personal carbon footprint?

      uses rifles. It is no embarrassment to me. I just didn't know what you were talking about.

        look at things. The only kind of hunting I did growing up is dove hunting and deer hunting. The way we did the deer hunting is probably not as sporting as the way serious hunters did it. We shot very close range from a permanent stand. So, when I see how far people are from turkeys, it looks far to me. And it looks like a pretty tiny target for a rifle. Again--I am familiar with these things from growing up, but I have not hunted in many many years and have no wish to.
