That makes the story even better! Absolutely incredible!

BP report matches our experiences with rimfire. Our family has been able to use 17 wsm and 22 mag on several turkeys over the last couple years. I shot a Tom with a 22 mag at a range of about 80 yards. Unfortunately, despite a blood trail for 50 yards, I was not able to recover it. A couple birds have needed 3 or 4 shots to finish and I regret to say we have lost a couple birds. We have killed a couple with single shots, but they have usually hit the spine or neck. I switched us back to TSS in a shotgun this year and we have been 3 for 3 this since switching back. I am not a fan of rimfires for turkeys and will be using shotguns moving forward.
