Well it pays to have a good camera and it pays to have it with you.
Was pulling out yesterday morning to pick up son from University and bring him home. Turned a corner and in a field spotted some turkeys about 600 feet away.
I immediately pulled off the road and hopped out the truck and popped off some pics.
Was so cool to watch them and see the strutting by the males and the hens playing politics.
I have zoomed the pics to be able to see a close up of the gobblers.
There were probably about 10 turkeys in the whole group. I think there were three males. Anyway these two were headed for a showdown.
First pic is the guy in the second pic on the left. Then you see the guy in the second pic on the right heading his way.
Man i like watching the animals when you can get this close to them.
Dave i think they been reading our hunting regs, so they know to hang out close to the road here. Great to see the wildlife out and be outside again. Dont know but this year i been hankering to get outside.
Check out the beard on that guy on the right hand side.
