I was out yesterday on Public Land....First spot looked a lot different than in Spring so I ended up moving on to the next area...Pulling into the parking lot and 7 hens are 20 feet from my truck picking gravel as I get out of the truck...One was completely WHITE...I've seen "phased" birds before but this one was all white....Pretty cool to see that.... Sat in a familiar spot in a hardwood stand did a few yelps, waited 20 minutes then gave three gobbles....15 minutes after that I spotted movement and spotted the red head at about 80 yards...he was peering around not in any hurry to come in....he made it to about 60 yards and then didn't like somethin and walked off casually...SO CLOSE, yet so far...pumped to get that close to blastin my first Fall bird... As with Spring plenty of birds out in grass fields on private property drivin to hunt on Public Land....I'll get out a few more times if the bird dog will let me :-)

Congratulations Saroon and Machickanee fisher, way to go! They'll taste a lot better than a spring bird. If I was going to do a full body mount, it'd be a fall or winter bird that has all his feathers, because they molted earlier in the year, and none of them are broke or missing from fighting or strutting, or short from molting. Jzzz must still be sleeping...
