    Never Seen Them Before

    Going down the road from a cottage in the Muskokas - saw a rafter of about 40 wild turkeys crossing the road about 50 feet in front of us...

    50 yards is enough time for you to slow and let them cross.

    Deer season has one more month and Turkey season will be right around the corner.
    I had 27 turkeys and 18 doe's out in the field a few weeks ago in front of me. Really cool to watch them working the field together.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    It was quite the sight to see turkeys fly...all I have ever seen is those dumb white turkeys...


    My daughter is a photographer and she went up to where they were crossing and some flew over her....

    Always heard how tough those wild turkeys were. My youngest daughter shot a 26 pounder this spring, that was hands down, THE BEST TURKEY I HAVE EVER EATEN IN MY LIFE! My parents were over, none of us could believe how delicious it was.
