Darwin's Thanksgiving Moment
« on: November 19, 2014, 10:48:54 AM »
These guys need to check their calendars.  This is my neighbor's back deck taken from the deck outside my kitchen.

Hey guys: "Umm, Thanksgiving.....Kitchen, get it ?!!!"  I don't think they do.................

Mitch,
You really have wild turkeys in you neighborhood?! Or are they your neighbors "pets?"
Either way - very cool!
Cheers,
Don
I have done wrong.. but what I did, I thought needed to be done.

They are all over the place here, especially this time of year - figures.  They are a pain in the butt.  Very brazen, they walk in the middle of the street completely fearless of the cars (or too dumb to know to be afraid).  They crap on our rooftops and sometimes we wake to the gobbling.  They roost in the trees right behind the house at sundown. 

Feel free to come by and take a few for dinner!

I would love to take you up on that offer.  Turkey is on my list to get.  I've hunted them several times in the Red Bluff area but didn't get one.  One day maybe.

Ditto that here. Maine is crawling with them over the last several years. They are brazen until you put on the camo and grab the 12 gauge.
If you don't like the heat, move to Maine!

I'd be burning up my pellet gun if I lived in your neighborhood.

I spent turkey season passing kidney stones and couldn't make it out.  About a week after the season ended, there was a flock of 11 hanging out in my back yard.

Ha....I figured you would have one!  8)  My first was a Benjamin pump rifle w/scope in 1970.
