What were your gobblers eating?

I'm sure most of you check the crawl when cleaning your bird. Curious as to what most were eating for there last breakfast.
The reason I ask is my buddy got one up near Poe Valley and it was loaded with these little sprout like plants. I have never seen them before. Small thin young shoots probably along the stream in a dark pine forest. They kind of looked like bean sprouts you would put on a sandwich. They were a bright green with a very small tubular head on it with an open end, possibly some kind of small flower. I have tried to google search it, but no luck so far. It was the only thing he had to eat so they must really like them.

Re: What were your gobblers eating?

Last year the crop of my bird had some sort of unidentifiable plant in it. I still haven't figured out what it was, and I asked everyone I knew, including on here, lol.

I think I'm an alright guy, I think I'm alright

Both mine and my son's crop's were empty. They must have been too busy to eat! LOL.

Empty, with a few clover leafs. I'd imagine shooting them later in the morning would help too lol
