I got on here today and wanted to wish everyone a safe and successful season. What have you been seeing?
I've watched a flock around the corner from me for about a month now and for the first 2 weeks there were 4 Long beards 4 Hens and 2 jakes. As of almost 2 weeks ago the Toms are gone when I usually see the whole flock go to roost. We've seen Toms on either side of the road the past week but never together, so I'm thinking they've split up? What do you think?
Got 2 others pinned down on another piece thats actually right behind the place I work. My buddy hears them gobble on the roost when he slams his truck door. Shot 2 there over the past 2 years , 23 lbs and 22 1/2 pounder last year. Trying to get him his first bird so wish us luck. Will post pics if the plan comes together.
One more thing. Anyone know how long it takes for a fan/tail feather to grow back? We were chasing a Big tom last year with a broken middle tail feather. Thanks
