My son Blaine did it again with his osage longbow in Iowa and with some pretty awesome footage on this hunt as well.

It’s 12 minutes long and really gives a good glimpse into how good an early hunt can be. I hope you enjoy it if you have the time to watch it.

Wow! Extremely well done video! Congrats on a great bird, Blaine, especially with the longbow!

Loved the no-tail ringtail, too! I trapped one of them this past winter. First one I’d ever seen.

well done. i really enjoyed it.

i saw the bow was an appalachian flatbow. those were made by dave guthrie if i remember correctly. it was one of my first stickbows decades ago. it was too much draw weight though and i sold it. i think mine had red elm limbs.

Thank you all for the kind words! There aren’t many things I would rather be doing in this world than hunting turkeys with a longbow.

Ron, that is very interesting! Dave makes a heck of a bow. I’ve tried shooting a few other stick bows over the last few years, but there is something special about that particular piece of Osage that keeps calling me back.

Thank you to everyone that took the time to watch my video, I really appreciate it.

Why is Osage orange good for bows? Osage Orange wood is renowned for its use in crafting Cherokee bows. Characterized by hard, dense, and tight graining, it is not an easy wood to carve, but affords itself to strong, fast, and durable bows.

Really well done! Love turkey hunting in Iowa. Been a couple years, maybe I should plan for next year. Killed my best Eastern there with a recurve. Last one was with a 20ga flintlock; that was a hoot.

Congratulations on an exceptional turkey hunt! This is "hands down" the best turkey video that I have seen!

I hope you continue filming your hunts, and I'm looking forward to them. Excellent choice of archery equipment! As a longtime traditional archer I know the challenges we face with our bows.

Again, congrats on an outstanding job!
