You have been working a bird all morning. It is now 11:30 am and he has gone quiet. You are in the middle of your property sitting on top of a ridge when suddenly on your right, a long beard appears to your right only 7 yards away.

What do you do?

7 yards you can do the right thing and let him not look and then pop him or just throw the gun up and blast at 7 yards you should have him dead before he knows what the heck is even going on

Freeze! There is nothing else to do. If he'd happen to turn and strut or something put the gun up left handed and off him. Otherwise. Don't move.

Wait for a better opportunity.

Hope he goes into a strut and shoot him left handed when he comes out of it or in the real world let him walk and call softly when he is out of view and whack him as he returns fo a quickie!:behead:

I agree! I'd sit tight and wait to see what his next move is. Chances are he'll give you a better opportunity than just throwing up and taking a hasty shot.

At that range it would be easy to actually throw up and miss even w/ a shotgun. Your pattern would be like throwing a golf ball at him.

I hate to admit it but I've missed standing still gobblers at that range. :bangin:

Good call that is the only thing to do in this situation unless he gets nervous and starts to leave or starts alarm putting and then try your luck with the quick draw if all else fails.

I missed the biggest gobbler i've ever seen at very close range. I would sit still,let him get out to 20 or 30 then shoot. Many times I have had to move a little on turkeys and if you pick your time and go slow it will sometimes work.

Sit tight and not even blink and see what he does. Hopefully he would get in front of you and you can pull the trigger. Or once he goes behind a big tree or goes into strut swing the gun and see if he catches the movement. If he didn't ctach you, line up and shoot.

First off I would have to swallow really hard, just to keep my heart down. Then I would try to wait and see what he is going too do. Hopefully pass by in front of me. If not, I would wait and let him walk away a little so when I try that quickshot, my pattern would have time to open a little. Then I would go hame and change my britches. :toilet:
