Turkey or Not?
« on: January 28, 2017, 12:54:27 PM »
I went turkey hunting during our recent winter season here in Maryland. It was last Thursday, Friday and Saturday. The weather was decent so I decided to give it a try. I took these pictures while sitting in my blind. The questions is, is that a turkey or a decoy? Your thoughts? One was taken Thursday during some dense fog and the other on Saturday. Both were taken with an inexpensive Nikon pocket camera.

It has to be a decoy or we would be reading about the hunt and a picture of your hands around his neck, and I don't see any smoke at the end of the barrel. LOL  :2)

Gutshot, I was thinking exactly that after I posted the pictures! Yes, there would already be a story and picture and yes, it is a decoy! Hunters Specialties Suzie Snood!
