Lost Flock?
« on: November 25, 2019, 07:32:12 PM »
I had mentioned in a previous post that I thought we had lost the flock of turkeys in the area of private ground that I hunt. Last year there was a huge flock that totally disappeared right before spring gobbler season. This past summer there was a flock of around 15 that eventually disappeared also. I did kill one that I wasn't sure if she was with the flock as she came in from over my right shoulder and walked from right to left and I couldn't move to look because she was so close. A recent trail camera picture showed that for whatever reasons, the hugr flock is back! I counted close to thirty turkeys in this group. Hope they stick around for spring gobbler season!

I don't know BC, but in the fall the birds tend to gather back up in big flocks and depending on the food sources they're favoring, you'll either see dozens or none.  I've seen the same thing happen down south on my bro in law's place although with the increase in bobcats and high water, we haven't been seeing big flocks for several years now in the fall.

the great outdoors - get out there
and enjoy it!
