Hoping for a man-sized bird, not some measly hen, but haven't seen a tom on my propery yet.  The neighbor across the road has a gang of birds with some gobblers in the field every morning.  May have to give him a call before the season ends May 31.

 

Hey!  Finally got a new post in!

At least you have seen a Turkey. Our archery seasons starts the 12th and I have been out a few times trying to locate a gobbler, but no luck yet !

I've worked for a few bearded hens.. . They can be nasty.
Good luck getting a Tom Glen...
You too Ed.

good luck Glen

 

 

i would have taken that hen.here she would be legal during spring season

all that is required is a visible beard.

im not a trophy hunter by any means of the definition

but when a trophy walks by i would shoot it

plus i have never seen a bearded hen yet

Seen them before and have no desire to kill an egg-laying circus bird.  Hope to get out Friday morning.

Jakes get a pass from me.  A few years back early morning, had a few hens about 20 feet in front of me, when they all looked to the sky.  Couldn't tell what was going on until about 6 or 7 jakes landed in front of me.  Very cool.
