Turkeys in the front yard
« on: February 27, 2012, 03:12:54 PM »
I won't have to go too far to get my gobbler this year.  These dumb birds have been in my yard the last 4 afternoons in a row.  Two days ago I caught them drinking out of my swimming pool.   So far I have not been able to talk my wife into letting replace the window screens with shoot through mesh so I am hoping a regular screen won't affect the flight of my arrow.  It should make a neat video shooting a turkey while sitting in my recliner

I am sure of it.  They have been taking lessons from my deer and will be long gone by opening day.  If one does show up you can bet I will shoot him from inside the house just to say I did.

I have had 4 nice toms, barely 15 yds from a bathroom window, on several occasions.  Of course, season was not open yet.  By the time season opened, they were nowhere to be seen.

It's awesome to have Turks living around your house... I get up almost every morning and go out on the deck and see if I can talk Turkey with the neighborhood birds...
