Strutters

10 posts in this topic

Last Sunday I saw three large toms at full strut in a hay field,am I wrong or are the birds still trying to breed in the middle on June? Just thought it was a bit late??? Opinions>

I saw a bunch last week and two weeks ago. I'm no wildlife biologist, but I suspect there might have been some re-nesting with cool temps and rain.

I too have been seeing strutters here and there. Had one gobbling while I was fishing last weekend. Must have gobbled 100 times. Funny, had a mouth call in the boat, no response to it on Saturday, but Sunday they couldn't get enough of it. Thought one was gonna fly right onto lake.

I predicted during our May season that the birds will be gobbling and strutting until mid July, well here it is June 27th and this is what I saw today on the way to work. I wonder how long it will continue? If I didn't have to be at work I would have tried to work this bird just to see if I could get him in range. smile

Here it is July 22 and today I saw 2 birds strutting over one hen in one field and a mile down the road saw one tom strutting over 3 hens and chasing them. Their heads where as white as could be, I had a box call in the truck and gave the 2 toms a couple of yelps and they triple gobbled and starting coming to the truck. No camera but it's going in the truck tonight so I can get pics.
