Before turkeys were everywhere around Brainerd I always heard how cagey and easily spooked they are making them hard to hunt. Now that they are around I'm convinced they are the dumbest bird on legs. They stand in the way of trucks and 4 wheelers at hunting camp, you almost have to get out and shoo them away.

It's the same thing with ducks.  They'll land right next to my boat when I have a fishing pole and they'll flock towards anybody with a loaf a bread at the city park.

 

But cover yourself in max-4 and hide in the reeds with a shotgun, and the ducks are super nervous about landing anywhere close.

Same with the geese in Rochester.  I think they know where the boundaries of the protected areas are.

That's why they have little horns, Del...to honk at ya!!!! A line of them from Kruse to the old firehall walked single file across the street  and backed up traffic for about five minutes yday. Was pretty funny....and I think they did it on purpose. :grin:

 

Love the turkey pics!!!

Try to kill one sometime and see how quick they catch on ;)

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
