    DSC01569.JPG DSC01567.JPG DSC01566.JPG DSC01565.JPG These showed up in on our driveway this morning. I counted 16 of them. I had seen some of their tracks in the snow earlier this morning when I went out to get the newspaper. They eventually flew into the woods.

    last early morning vistors i had were also 2 legged, but they did require the shotgun for motivation to depart the premises even though the 4 legged guards were speaking to them quite loudly.

    Wow, I wish they were in my yard, We have to use turkey dogs here just to see them. We always fall hunt turkeys. My lab would break out a window just to get to them. Love the pictures!

    I have a feeder out back (been there 2 years now) spitting out corn twice a day. Lots of deer, rabbit, squirrel, birds but no turkeys. They roost often in the trees nearby but don't seem to like the feeder. Found turkey tracks around the feeder a couple of weeks ago, thought ok now I will start to see them. Haven't been back since. I'm starting to take it personal. :(

    We do not have any thing set up other than the salt block. We do how ever have the creek and woods that is a travel route for the critters.

    We had these in the driveway a while back. When there's a lot of snow, they come up on our deck and eat from the bird feeders. The largest group I've seen at the house was around 50 birds.

    Great pictures guys.

    My neighbor at the cabin feeds the deer. Never see a buck but we did find a beauty of a 5 point shed.

    We get a lot of fawns laying and feeding in the yard. I think their MaMa's know they are safe from coyote here.
