You’ve all seen the videos; a hunter shoots a turkey and then sprints out to step on its head/neck to . . . why exactly do we step on its neck?
Whether or not you agree that stepping on a turkey’s neck kills a bird quicker, one thing is certain: A turkey that’s still moving can be dangerous.
Don’t believe us?
Then watch the video below and see for yourself. Turkeys have spurs and know how to use them! This hunter will have to deal with a lengthy recovery period; can you imagine how long it will take a wound located in this tricky spot to heal? Not good.
If your still in pursuit of Mr. Gobbler this spring, be careful after the shot.
