Hearing Thunder Chickens
« on: March 16, 2013, 06:34:53 PM »
Well today I heard the Trukey's just gobblin their little heads off. Randi has heard them too when she gets ready to leave for work in the mornings. This just might be a good season for me. I wish everyone the best of luck and safe hunting.

God Bless all.

Our season starts in a couple of weeks, I hope ours want to talk this year. They are usually somewhere else during the season. They are all over us during the deer season, but disappear during the Spring! Good Luck!!!

Was driving to work yesterday and on my way I pass a farm that has several tame white turkey roaming loose with their chickens.  One Tom was struttin and sounding off so I slowed down and rolled down the car window to listen to him.  I realized when I did he had a turkey answering him, that was a wild brother across the road struttin and thundering on the other side of the country road.
