If you shoot them in the head, they spray about 99% of the time. If you shoot them in the lungs, and don't get them to riled up they spray about 25% of the time. Try a shott just behind the front shoulder.

I shot one Sunday morning with a 3" 2 oz. load of No.6 lead (turkey load) at 20 yards. He didn't even twitch much less spray.

I use my .223 knocks them out before they can spray. The key is to make a good one shot instant kill!

If using a shotgun, hit them in the back(spine)at about the hind legs. Would try not to do it near the house, because there is usualy a little residual smell, but not a spray.

works for me..

      I've been scouting public land like crazy to find some spots for upcoming archery and the spring turkey season and haven't found a shed yet. I even ventured into a sure bedding area hoping I'd see one in there and no dice.    It shouldn't be too much longer.

      No one else getting concerned with the Wild's lack of intensity??? darn good when they want to be and awful mediocre when not buzzing....... Been a long time since I watched them play 3 full periods of real hockey.....

      Just looked at the harbor cam in canal park and looked like there was two guys out fishing from the pier. Now that the gates are open I would say that's what they were doing. Feel free to share any reports you have or would like to share. Good luck all!

      I grew up in this area and if walk in a ways  you can be all by yourself. Best time deer hunting can be during duck season when people are moving the deer.
