First time seeing "The King" in all his glory
While archery hunting on Friday, I saw one of the most beautiful sights ive ever seen in the woods. I heard some leaves crunching behind me, and got excited with anticipation that a buck would be coming in.
I turned around to see my greatest advisory in all of his glory strutting around about 15 yards away. He was truly a big bird with a very large fan. It was neat to see his ruff shimmering, and tail fan moving back and fourth. I could hear him making some bubbly clucking sounds as well. I was so pumped to finally see this. He did look proud as could be in his little patch of recovering fenced in area on the state gamelands I was hunting. As if he thought he was the king of that area.
I am actually excited daylight savings time came in as it may give me enough time for a quick grouse hunt before work. I just need to get one of these guys already, but with the rut being on I think I may be glued to a tree for the next week or so.
