First Gobbler sighting on my farm
« on: January 04, 2010, 03:32:48 PM »
I have always seen some hens on my place in early bow season and some nesting in the spring. But, I have never seen a gobbler until this past week when I have seen the same bird twice with two hens. He appears to me that he could be a three year old as he has some pretty good hooks and really THICK 9" beard. I'm excited to think that maybe I have a chance to finally get some birds to stick around. @--0--0123 I think that I will be spending some spring mornings out there before work listening. @--0--0122

Tiller, I had 4 toms coming in pretty regularly this summer, along with 4 hens and a bunch of chicks.  All this traffic made me start thinking that I could possibly take a tom during the fall season.  Never happened.  After a while, they simply stopped coming in.
