A very strange happening.

I'm not sure how it goes for the rest of you guys, but the yearly transition from being obsessed with deer to being obsessed with turkeys is usually a very strange and confusing time for me.


This year was no different, and it happened in about 5 minutes yesterday afternoon. So there I was, out tramping around the normal grounds looking for shed antlers. I was growing particularly frustrated since I knew that the bucks I had been watching had all dropped, yet I couldn't find any dang horns. This frustration finally grew to a low rolling boil and I began to wish I had something else to focus on for a while. It was about that time that I saw it. In a shaded area of a draft was this strange, three toed track in the snow. I eventually dismissed the track as some sort of weird overgrown chicken that probably came from somewhere down around Curwensville (everyone knows that things from Curwensville tend to be kinda strange. :D)
Anyway, I woke up this morning and did my normal routine. I got ready and came to work. From there I do the daily ritual of checking my email, getting any tasks for the day and settling in to catch up on HPA. But this morning was different, I suddenly found myself here in the Turkey forum. At first I thought I was lost, but apparently not as I started reading threads and everything!


Right about that time is when it hit me.... that weird uber chicken track had been a turkey! The smell of the spring air this morning and the sound of song birds had sealed the deal. I am now officially in turkey mode for the next three months... crap.

I'm a turkey hunter through and through. I love to hunt deer in the fall but turkeys are on my mind year round.
