Hunter Catches Turkey With Bare Hands Using Decoy

Jake turkeys aren’t the brightest birds in th flock. In fact, they can be downright stupid at times, particularly when they fall in love with a hunter’s decoy. 

Such was the case for two Georgia hunters recently when a gang of jakes decided to take advantage of their decoy.

What do you do with jakes? These guys seem to have the answer.

The hunters also took advantage of the situation by crawling out to the live birds and taking things into their own hands…literally!

Some hunters shoot them...other hunters catch them.

Catch and release turkeys? Could it be the way of the future if bird numbers get too low?
