It's always fun watching them.  the 4 hens and 16 chicks that were coming into my yard, have stopped coming.  The mulberries are gone.  Haven't seen the 4 toms either.

I have a group of six jakes that I see (almost) on a daily basis. They will be two year old birds this hunting season. It's amazing how much you can learn by being able to observe wildlife all year long.
I'd rather be hunting

Awesome! We saw 10 turkeys in our backyard just a couple days ago. One was 5 ft off the back porch!

We used to have a lot of turkeys in the neighborhood(forest behind the house) but when a mountain lion moved in, the turkeys left.  One time wolfie1 was hunting and shot at some turkeys and a red fox came running to see if he could grab a downed bird.  Wolfie1 sat on a stump and laughed till his stomach hurt.
Ethical hunting isn't just about perfect shot placement.  It's also the knowledge that you are an ethical hunter and a true sportsman.  Enjoy the hunt and the experience, whether you shoot something or not.   Live every day as if it's your last.
There's a reason it's called hunting, not shopping

Hay bit, want to let you know that we took pics of about 12 birds off our front porch today. It's pretty cool to see all of them walking around in the rain.
