Prior to my injury I had the opportunity to harvest a mature Tom with my compound bow. I would certainly like the opportunity to take one with my crossbow this year.
Hopefully the weather cooperates, I have been seeing a lot of turkeys while deer hunting this year. Good luck, be safe and enjoy all mother nature has to offer!
