As the title stated WARNING: The following video "JAKE RAPE" Part-1 starring my Dave Smith Hen decoy may be found to some as very pornographic, if so please continue to the next video or just fast forward thru the boring parts.
There is over 16 minutes of video but due to youtube restrictions I cut it down to 10 min.
Turn up the volume as you can hear the toe nails of this jake as he digs in!
As I feared for the life of my DSD hen (paint job) The beak pecking intimidation was enough for me to pull the string on my modified stake and spin jakester off her back for a short break in the action at one point.
In part-2 "SUPER JAKE" looses his head over this gal!
WARNING: If you find blood squirting decapitation offensive then you may want to hit the back button now!
Note: Make sure you view this one in full screen and watch the head/neck area after the shot..
This next video is "Pretty Boy's revenge"
Watch the left side of the screen for the shot as it was almost missed on tape but I was determined to even the score for Pretty Boy.
This was a soggy hunt as it rained the entire night before this hunt. Pretty Boy was used in the high clover and grass for the exposure of his strutting tail fan above the vegetation.
The MO Guillotine Hunt was my best bird by bow this year and was not recovered until 2 days later. We looked for quite a while after reviewing the footage as it seemed the bird was hit hard by all the feathers deploying upon the shot.
Amazingly we were hunting in the same area and walked up on my bird some 300-400 yards from where I shot him. The yotes had not yet found him but after weighing the bird, checking it in etc I found (as expected) the meat was no good. It is a sinking feeling to cripple a bird and especially with the broadheads I shoot as they usually results in a miss or a clean quick kill.
The shot was anything but pretty as I did many things wrong on this hunt as I just flat out let these birds fluster me! I rushed the shot by not waiting until the bird had his head more upward, I felt confident and then "punched" the trigger.:embara:
The bird had a 1/8" to 1/4" cut on his right side of the neck and it was obvious after seeing the bald spot on his back this was the bird I had previously hit. See the video and pictures below..
It was a great season and I shared several great hunts with many others and was fortunate in many ways. We had some great video footage this year and I had a wise ol bird that kept hanging up just out of bow range that required me to pull out the scattergun. (Yes I did and it felt pretty good actually as it reminded me of old times with my Uncle). It also allowed me to take the wise old bird that sported the longest spur that I have ever taken in the many years of turkey hunting.
1-3/4" of needle sharp razor!
