All that corn you have been feeding him......

Should be tasty.  Good Job.  My shoulder is still not well enough to take a shotgun blast, so I get to sit this one out.  First season since 1976.

      Ha JD!   Funny you should say that. The farm where I shot him is managed for deer. The Farmer who farms it leaves standing crops for the landowner so  the deer have his share to winter on. Last years crop was corn. Farmer is a friend of mine. He claims turkey are rougher on crops than the deer are. I had never thought of this but he says they will jump and rake the ears off of the stalks. I have never witnessed this. AND this was the toughest bird I have ever skinned. It will be tasty for sure but tough!

Great looking bird. Congrats BH! You should stop shooting them in the garden. Messes up the mulch :).

      Good eyes John,

    Yep right under the dogwood tree too. Did not carry the camera to the field this morning. Should of staged the photo better. Mrs. BilletHead was bummed when the pounding rain took the petals off the blooming flowers. Here is to hoping I can get her on a bird in the AM on her day off. At least it should not be storming. Once I had her out and we got caught along way from the house in a bad thunderstorm. It scared us both. I made us separate a hundred yards and I carried the shotgun home. We were looked like wet rats when we got home. Going to share another thing. Where I shot this bird this morning is near and dear to the Mrs. and I. Eleven years ago during turkey season is when Pat was told she had cancer. A couple of days later we were in this same spot. I called her a bird. I told her to take the shot, she did not, told her again and still she did not fire. Bird finally walked off. I looked at her and she had tears in her eyes. Asked her what was wrong and why did she not shoot. She said I was afraid to shoot thinking it would jar her and make her cancer spread. We both began to cry. Actually we look back on that as a fond memory now she is cancer free. I again tear up thinking of this.
