A couple black blobs came down the trail. Obviously too small for a bear but pretty nice for turkeys.
I think the lead turkey saw my wheeler which was parked below the tree stand. He wasn't sure what to do
so he flew past me and went up to a tree to roost. The second one soon followed. I did get a picture of
him as he flew by. It was quite a sight. The two were still roosted there the next morning. Well worth the
price of admission. Wind almost blew me out of the tree on Sunday afternoon.

Turkeys are cool to watch.  Hopefully a bear shows up soon.  Maybe you need to take a walk to a deerstand and wait for a bear to follow you.
Anything that is free is worth saving up for.

Reminds me of the time I setup to call yotes a few weeks after deer season with a caller.  All that came in was a big Tom!  :doah:  :doofus:
Cooking over a open fire is all fun and games until someone losses a wiener!

I remember the first time I saw turkeys picking thru the underbrush, way in the distance when bow hunting.

Took me a long time to figure out what they were cause I wasn't expecting them that far north at the time.
