I stated in an earlier post that Saturday opened up the hunting season here. Well, today I almost got my first turkey. It flew in from my left and directly into my sights. I only had a split second opportunity to get a bead on it. I don’t know what spooked it to retake flight and escape to my right. It might have been for the fact that there was this speeding white mass of a truck headed right for it. Or maybe it was the radio that was blaring one of the many local country radio stations. Either way, it decided that landing on the road right in front of me as I sped towards in my truck it wasn’t in its best interest and took off to be someone else’s Thanksgiving dinner. At first I thought it was one of the more agile buzzards headed towards me but the larger body and shape gave way to a female hen. I thought it was a nice way to start the morning.
