I was driving into my new spot when i seen these turkeys along the road...checked my map,and they were just out of the Cleveland Nat'l Forest by almost 1/4 mile right near a ranch....so all I could do was snap this picture..(.Got a late start waiting for my friend to show up..he was an hour late...so rest of the week I'm going back in there alone...)Seen some deer later and my friend bagged some quail...but my day was history....just my luck...Posted ImagePosted Image

Find the residents house and ask for permission. Take a copy of the regulations and show them airguns are legal and that's what you would be using. They may say go ahead. Most people aren't afraid of airguns.

Maybe during deer season if they're pushed. But I have a group that roosts in the same trees all of the time except when they go on "Walk About." Just like Crocodile Dundee they take off for a couple of months and head to the river over 5 miles away. I've seen them there and I know it's them because of the cream colored ones we have.Posted Image

I call them pied because a true albino would be all white and have pink eyes. :signs1180lq:
