this is the third day with everything fully cased in thick ice and i'm surprised that the turkeys can survive. the ground is covered with snow,,,which is covered with ice ,,,which is covered with snow.



It's like that here in Pa. We are expecting some bad weather coming Monday into Tuesday. It could be 1 or 2 inches of rain or 12 to 14 inches of snow depending on the temps.

on my way home from work i saw that big flock. couple of weeks back they were out in a picked cornfield , all bunched up and feeding . there was no snow then . today they were all scattered out over the field . the flock was at least 1/4 mile long,,,,,there are around 35 - 40 birds . quite a few toms too,,big boys.
oh yeah,,,just happened to get the invite to hunt there this spring . hope they can find food and stay.
