This post is for all those that hunt and specifically Dave H who hunts turkeys.
I was on my way home today and saw these birds on the other side of the road. Hit the brakes and screeched to a stop while pulling off the road.
They were fine and i took a few pics with my cellphone, but when i got out the car and crossed the road they decided that was too close for comfort and ran off. I counted 20 in the flock. In one pick you can see the gobbler not letting the hen out of his sight. I watched him walking after her she was out front of the whole flock with him following. Then they hi tailed it quickly.
Was really good to see them and see the feathers which the darn cell phone camera does not do justice to. Spurred the hunting juices in me but then i remembered even if it was by some miracle hunting season we have a rule that says must be more than 400m from a road. Wonder if they been reading regs. I had the sun behind me and could not see what the cellphone screen was showing in camera mode. That will teach me not to have my proper camera with me. Anyway enjoy the picks. Was -7 Celsius out there today but at least the sun was shining.
