    Got out about 3 weeks into the season. The birds were a little hard to call in this late in the season. Sorry about the crappy cell phone pic: [​IMG]

    The bird looks better on the smoker!

    turkeys

    They are pesky creatures. These are wild. Not farm raised. I should start hunting them.

    You must live in a housing development that outlaws shooting. Turkeys can be killed with bows/arrows too. They are relatively silent. ;)

    PPS. congrats on the bird. Smoker looks good.

    I live in a residential neighborhood as witnessed by:

    Our game commission laws supercede local laws and ordinances so even communities outlawing discharge of firearms cannot do anything as long as you are legally outside of safety zones, use proper firearms ( shotgun only & archery for deer in my county) and it's best to get written permission from owners to hunt their land.

    I had permission to hunt 3 acres (now posted) about 500 yds behind my house and have taken quite a few deer there. This is across the valley. This land was a farm and will soon be an upper scale housing development. Luckily, the hillside these birds were on is too steep so my view will remain the same. The 2 deer looking back are watching my wife unload groceries about 15 yds away.

    Last years pic. By the way, I don't hunt turkeys. If I did, I'd probably never get another pic.

    Every time I go to a bad dove shoot, I notice that all the doves are on the telephone wires in people's yards. I see turkeys in front yards coming back from a bust of a turkey hunt.

    Y'all know what onomotopoeia is, right? A word that sounds like what it represents?

    Fun fact for the day: the Persian-Farsi (Iranian) word for turkey is

    ﺑﻮﻗﻠﻤﻮن - BOO'GA'LA'MOON.

    I'm surprised they have a word for a non-native bird.

    They actually use the same word for about any type of guinea fowl or similar, I suppose rather like the English words deer, goat, or antelope are used to refer to a very wide variety of loosely related ungulates.
