Turkey Hunting

Finally, Wednesday afternoon, getting out to go hunt a gobbler, no luck this time, but after I had been in my hide for about thirty minutes, out walked a full size, turkey hen. This was a big one, not the hens that I saw on Sunday afternoon, they were young ones, jakettes, or properly, jennies.

The big hen saw the two, hen decoys that I had put out and made a bee line for them. Right away I started snapping pictures of her.

None turned out except for this one, where she was looking in my direction, probably trying to figure what was that thing in the creek bottom, behind the cedar tree? The hen was twelve feet from me when I got this “shot”!

Having finished my taxes, when this posts, I’ll be in a different “hide” trying to lure in a gobbler.

Hope springs eternal!
