BOW TOTING TURKEY HUNTER
G.O. Joe Archer, circa 1912, had to camo-up and develop new tactics before becoming much of a threat hunting turkeys with a bow. In fact, the bow toting turkey hunter reached near extinction as Native American Indians gained access to modern firearms in the 1800’s. It wasn’t till the very early 1900’s when the first archery hobbyist mastered field archery and first considered testing their sporting skills against our almost national bird, the Wild Turkey. The transformation has taken over a hundred years. This is relatively a short span of time in evolutionary terms, and it is safe to say that both human species and Meleagris gallopavo (turkey) species are certainly alive and flourishing.
