Not physically, but in trying to kill them, I have have my ass handed to me many times by birds I thought I had coming to the gun.

Got a nice scar on my left hand from a spur.

Lots of mental scars from being kicked around by the old boys.

I got mine on film too! I stepped out of view after the beating began. All you can see is feathers flying, and hear me cussing at the darn thing! His wings shredded my arms up pretty good!

Never killed one, so no. I did get kicked in the shin by a "dead" spike. I walked up after shooting him and started to flip him around to gut him when he kicked the **** out of my leg. I had a big bruise on my shin for several days.

I had one stand up as I walked up to it. I ended up tackling him and ringing his neck like a wet wash rag!

Coworker and his friend ran over one in the pickup after many beers. Said the friend went to pick up the stumbling bird and it came to life. Triutt said he couldnt do anything but laugh as his friend got tore up by the bird for 3 minutes. Cuts were on his hands, arms, face stomach, chest and thighs

I took my wife on a hunt with me several years ago and we got on some fired up Tom's early.Well it was little cool still and she wanted to hang back in the sunshine while I moved to head 'em off.10 minutes later I had 3 fine examples of eastern wild turkey in front of me and I lowered the boom on the closest gobbler.Well he was flopping hard so I ran up and planted my boot on his neck....firmly!

This was not at all the direction he was hoping these precedings might take so he procceeded to flat whoop the camo off my shins and knees with his wings and he was a sizeable strong bird.Eventually he calmed down an expired allowing me to pick him up and walk back out into the sunshine carrying my prize,

My wife,upon hearing all the clamoring and commotion in there after the shot said she was relieved to see me because from the sounds of the struggle she thought the gobbler was just as likely to come out with me over his shoulder instead!

If ya'll are wanting to get your ass whooped by a Tom,

Boink and I can stand you up and I can break your nose, while boink give's ya a straight right to the sack.



Seriously,

Nope not yet. I watched a guy who was about 6'5" get his ass handed to him by a supposedly dead gobbler!!! He picked it up by it's legs and it let loose on the guy w/his wings!!! Knocked him flat on his back!!!

Pretty funny to watch!!
