Isnt that type pellet gun loud? Basically like a 22 rifle?
If I do decide to tackle one I'll definatley have them video it so I can post it up on here.lol ;)

Well...















... Tried it before turkey season ended, but, as soon as I stood they flew so I did not get one. I'm glad I didn't catch the tom because he was BIG.

We're laughing with you, not at you! I have to admit, though, that a video of this would be humerous! That turkey wouldn't know what hit him, literally! :)

I think the turkey would hold his own and get in quite a few punches. You ever tried to catch chickens? You run your rear off. And they are half tame. Cant imagine trying to dodge the spurs on a wild tom.

Those spurs can do some real damage to a soft fleshy finger. The turkey can run like the wind too. Wear full contact equipment if you plan on tackling a turkey.

i think before you do it , you need to buy an action cam, like in sporting events you can mount to a helmet and you tube it

well ya could always take an old bed mattress and burn off all the fiber down to the wire spring frame, set in yard add corn to middle and when the turkey walk in an eat he wont back out so go pick him up.
I've never tried that myself but thats a story from an old man that said hunting was for people whom had to much time to spend not working lol
