Michael Krysinski's turkey

Print Article

Capt. Michael Michael Krysinski, 36th Rescue Squadron at Fairchild Air Force Base, hunted private property in the Airway Heights area and bagged this nice hen during the late fall general season, which allows the taking of one turkey of either sex.

Mike was set up in a blind and had toms and hens all around him at about 10 a.m. He was using a crossbow at first, but didn't touch a bird at a distance of 50 yards.

The commotion from multiple shots scattered the flock but Mike didn't give up. He continued to call for another hour, but the stubborn birds just wouldn't come back closer.

Changing strategies, Mike decided to stalk the flock to see if he could get a shot. Now using his Remington 870, Mike stealthily put a sneak on them. He was able to close the distance to 30 yards of an unsuspecting hen, which turkey hunters know is no small feat.

Mike took down the big bird with a well-placed shot, recovered his game and notched his tag. He was home shortly thereafter showing off his prize to his daughter Brooke, who helped her dad clean it.
