If he was any kind of rifleman he would have taken a head shot.

Some strange people do it not for the sport or skill but are enthralled by the mere killing and the carnage they wreak and give us all a bad name. If you want to see something explode at the impact of a tiny missile I suggest you shoot at pumpkins, gallon jugs of water or if you must see blood amd meat flying... go buy a big roast and shoot it for heaven's sake... grow up!

+1. That is one of the more disturbing and least humane things I've read in quite a while.

What's the difference between exploding a tethered turkey and exploding thousands of prairie dogs? The eradication of prairie dog towns eliminated one of the major ecosystems of the plains and a host of species that depended on them. I have mixed feelings about shooting pen-raised pheasants, but I know how I feel about using wild animals as bulls eyes.

Hey, ease up gang. I didn't buy a domestic turkey and blast it ( a la Jim Rikkoff) with a .22-250 steppin out at almost 4000 fps. muzzle. MY WACKO BUDDY DID-- HE WOULD RATHER BLOW UP PRAIRIE DAWGS THAN HUNT DEER OR TURKEY- FOR DEER HE USES A Win 30-30 170 grainer Silvertip, and for turkey, as he is a legit hunter, he uses a Ithaca Mag-10 and shoots for the neck- at 60 yards or less, dead bird- The main reason we cannot use a CF rifle of any calibre for Turkeys here in MI is safety- we also have 'numbnutz" who pepper the hen K-Mart plastic foolies- related to the same idiots that spray your duck decoys in front of your blind each Fall- It was his money and his experiment- Not Mine- and he could have easily taken a head shot, I've shot woodchucks and prairie doggies with him for years- and a 300 yard shot between the "running lights" of a SD prairie dog is a "piece of cake"--

Where rifles are legal, seems like it'd be fun to do with some of the older light calibers, like maybe a .25-20.

That's absolutely sickening, tying up a live turkey and blowing it up for a cheap thrill. This guy is wrong in the head. You keep dubious company RWTF.

The company here that imports Swedish guns by the carload has a light single shot bolt rifle in 32-20. Larry, I think that would be a good turkey gun.
Lat year a Quebec hunter was shot and killed by an [censored] in a truck shooting at duck decoys, with a rifle, thinking they were real ducks, the hunter was shot in the head.Lovely!
