And they say us Ohio boys don't know how to appreciate our turkeys!   You give me something to think about:  I've been wanting to do something for my birds since they took away all my corn piles.

Those Amish girls sure enough have hairy legs-- and the Mennonites are even worse-- dated one once with leg hair so long. . .  well, I'll have to tell you some time.

God Bless you, Mark.  That's the nicest thing I ever heard of a guy and his turkeys.

I'm not too worried.  I haven't seen a wood-fired laptop with a screen backlit with kerosene-- at least not yet.

ORIGINAL: TurkeyComander

If you did your homework you'd know that some Amish do have electricity....either way it's not nice to poke fun at someones way of life.



You're right about that. I am full blooded Amish but the jokes were funny nonetheless. I was born English though. Have a nice day ya'll

Now back to the original question. Yes I scout as often as I can. I already know where the turkeys are but I go just to make sure they are still there. I like to hear them gobble, plus it gives me the exercise I need when the season comes in. Right now i'm waiting for the mountain roads to be free of ice before I venture into the woods again. I had too many episodes of ice related scares in my time.

make fun of someones life style ? take advantage of someones life style ?
i am fully aware that some are using electricity as well as some are fine and upright folks. and i'm also aware of the ones that cause trouble by trespassing and poaching .
i didn't intend to offend anyone with my silly little story .

Went out to the Lease yesterday to see what sign I could find, look for deer sheds, and pull downed limbs off the roads & trails that came down during winter storms (so it will be easier to get around once Turkey season rolls around).  I found no sheds, but in the process of clearing one of the trails, I jumped a hen that I (unknowingly) got pretty close to before she flew. Saw a handful of diving ducks on the pond, and on my way back toward the truck, I saw two huge Gobblers traveling together going from the cutover into the woods.  I hope they are around come the hunting season as either one would be worthy of a notched tag.
 
The Landowner said he saw a flock of 20+ turkeys crossing the powerlines a couple of days ago. All too far to see beards.
 
I swear, I could be packed & ready to go hunting in about half an hour.

Mark, shaman, no biggie'. I just get sick of seeing all the Amish bashing on these forums. As far as trespassers and poachers there are alot of English that do the same, maybe moreso.
