More Outdoors Pictures, April 14, 2012

After a successful hunt with Mickey Donahoo at his hunting lease, I returned to Goldthwaite and, I guess because of the shots in each knee, was able to resume my morning walks.  My first walk was this past Monday, nothing showed up unusual or picture worthy, but as I was walking back to the house, I noticed, on the other side of the road, turkey tracks and I took this picture.  Turkey movement around here was exciting to me!

Somehow, the date and time on the game camera has messed up and it reset, maybe lightning hit it?  Anyway, the camera was working and on the afternoon of April 9th, this nice gobbler was feeding.

The next day a gobbler and an unidentified turkey, maybe a jake, more likely a hen, but last year was so bad I don’t think any broods were successful!  Around here, bucks have lost their horns and these 2 young ones were feeding and paying no attention the turkeys walking along and browsing.
Eastern gobbler season opens in east Texas this Sunday, April 15th see my post “[Turkey Hunting]” on March 21, 2012.  Weather forecasts are horrible for northeast Texas, severe thunderstorms and tornadoes, clearing on Monday, but hopefully, Monday or Tuesday morning I’ll be opening this season too!
