wild turkey question. and not the alcohol wild turkey

5 posts in this topic

in my travels i see a fair amount of turkeys. why is it you hardly ever see the hens, most birds are toms? is it because the toms are darker in color or what? anybody got any ideas?

I'm not sure why you see so many toms. I see hens quite often. Maybe the bachelor group you see really likes the area you keep seeing them in.

when giong to and from places around spicer/ new london even cold spring where i live thats all i see are toms, and by the size of them they appear to be older than a jake. maybe because of there colors i focus on them not hens. i dont know i just see a hole lot more toms than hens. it sure gets the ole ticker revved up when you see them though.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
