Hah! I took that picture from my second-story bedroom window--not the motion sensor camera. And, no, you cannot shoot turkey from my bedroom window! The only times we have seen them in the yard is when it is drizzling rain. DH is hoping for some rain soon!
I don't think so, I already called dibs!
DH has been practicing his turkey calls What an awful sound to be woken up to in the morning!
Whisper, I don't see the actual pics now that you have downed your bird. How did everyone do???
I tried to get fancy and cost myself one. Rather than set up where I had planned I tried to get between multiple gobbling birds about 100 or so yards away from my original plan. Sure enough they all shut up but one at fly down time. I watched him walk right past where I had planned to be. I called and he began to close in on me. Then a fog came blowing threw. He changed directions and stayed in front of it until out of view. I've got a few days at the end of this week with a friend who is coming in from out of town. I'll mainly be babysitting and calling for him but maybe we'll get a chance for a double or I can get one in an afternoon if he fills his tag in the morning.
We haven't done any hunting yet. My husband is going to wait until it rains. That is the only time we see turkeys around here. Sorry you missed a chance, M. Hopefully, next time...
I'd love to but I have no time this year. I'm busy fixing my house so I can sell it next spring. I need to get back into the country. I'm just busting on MTM with the turkey stuff. However, I fully expect her to get out there and shoot me one, clean it, cook it and deliver it if she knows what's good for her!
For the last couple of days we have had one or two hen turkeys in our front yard on and off all day. BUT NO TOMS!
Here are some turkey hens from back in September on a rainy Sunday afternoon using my DSLR with a 250 mm lens from my back porch. Wish it was a little brighter, but not too bad for a dreary afternoon!
They keep the ticks down
I don't enjoy wild turkey myself, but it is nice to have 'meat on the hoof' if I ever need it... Just not that hungry for them now
They are very majestic animals and I love to see them pick around the grass, very fun to watch
