Turkey dinner
« on: March 07, 2014, 02:01:01 PM »
Was headed to town this morning to have coffee with the guys and saw a flock of ten gobblers. Stopped to watch them for a bit but they were acting nervous. Figured they didn't like me watching them but then I noticed the problem. About twenty yards away a big old bobcat was slinking through the underbrush beside the creek looking for breakfast. But the turkeys had the upper hand as they flew across the stream and paraded off as the cat sat watching. Seems to be a lot of gobblers around with the weather warming things up. Have seen numerous flocks around the area. As for the cat, he'll be on my list for next fall. ##$%#111

3 Beard, keep an eye on those toms, I'm hoping we can get together to do some hunting this year, if you are able. I'll be at camp for the trout season opener on the 12th of April.

Not sure what seasonal restrictions you have to contend with, but if possible, don't wait for the fall to take out the cat - it will be feasting on the nesting hens this spring otherwise.
One of God's greatest gifts to us is
the great outdoors - get out there
and enjoy it!
