turkey eggs
« on: April 10, 2013, 08:34:09 PM »
i was shed hunting last weekend and found several turkey egg shells along the deer trails. i think it's been too nasty and too much snow for the hens to nest. it looks like they are just dropping them as they walk.

anybody else seen this?

I have seen turkey egg shells on trails but it was because some predator busted up a nest. I guess it could be very possible the hen just laid them and left makes sense to me.

they were all singles and eaten. no possible nesting sites around, just in the miccle of deer trails. all this snow really has them messed up.

another 3-6" tonight and friday on top of the 4" we got today. i'm going to try to get hunting if i don't need to plow and the roads are ok
