Here's a closer view. Can you find him yet?

Alright this is all the zoom I can muster. Can you see him now?

Mind you the range is 350 yards. I got him with naked eye. But I did have the advantage of catching movement, as he settled in the roost.

I'll also admit to 8 images to get three clear enough. Shaky hands, not enough coffee today.

To make it a bit easier I centered him in the shot in this pic.

Is that his white head in the middle?

Just can't trick a true turkey hunter. You're right BC.

Truth be told, I copied it to my pictures so I could enlarge it myself and went all around the picture and all I could think of was that to be his white head.

There are three, I see Gutshot (Tom) asleep at the base of a tree.  He must be Turkey Hunting.   :2)   ##$%#1119   @--0--0105

I think you're right PJ. I missed that, darn trespassers anyway. Oh well at least he got a good nap in. The birds were safe!

What appears to be a second Tom under the head is actually his body. He had flown up to roost and was still settling in and looking all around for his TRESPASSERS I guess. When he landed on the branch he deployed the fan air brakes to halt momentum. Kinda like Gut when he's landing in a recliner!  --099-780

Great pics I got it in the second pic no problem- I guess your lucky Gut didn't lk up and the Tom didn't look down or it could have been a different picture!! --099-780
