    Spring Turkey

    This guy has been strutting all morning. A hen finally laid down for him but on the wrong side of the fence. Happens to animals too I guess.

    God how I miss Spring turkey hunting in Missouri.

    Would pack the wife and kids in the truck and spend a week in the woods.
    The wife and I were young, kids small................

    Life was good.

    Our season opened March 31st but this guy is pretty safe. Although he attacks people and vehicles, nobody wants to see him hurt and he's in a no hunting area to begin with. It's not open to the general public so I doubt anyone would shoot him.
    Thanks for the replies

    Cool pics. We saw a couple the other day but the Tom was camera shy. The hen was apparently on a mission and walked right to me and on past, so I got some fair pics of her anyway.
    Just like Texas in 1880.

    This guy isn't camera shy whatsoever. He comes towards you if you approach him and tries to beat you up with his wings and spurs. You do feel it! He is continually attacking cars along the roadside too.
