Post-Season Strutting and Gobbling Turkeys
This longbeard was still doing his thing on June 26. Have post-season strutting and gobbling turkeys made it hard for you to concentrate on summer fishing and chores around the house? Seeing any late nesting or poults?
And "charlie elk" laid down this report on nest and poult sightings over in Wisconsin. "Found a nest of 13 eggs!" he let us know on July 10. "Poults are ranging in size from softballs to basketballs. Before sunrise the valleys are full of kee-kees and hen yelping."
What are you seeing or hearing out there? Tell us on the Realtree Strut Report or in the comments section below.
