Late nesting

Postby Steve_In » July 2nd, 2013, 11:43 am

This is a link to a Facebook page from the IDNR. The picture is of a hatching clutch in AUGUST. That means the eggs would have been laid around now.

I saw a gobbler strutting for hens a week after the season went out. That doesn't mean anything, except he was willing to do his part to continue the species (aren't guys always ready to do our part?). I also saw a hen with five poults in the same field last weekend. She clearly bred earlier.

I usually have some turkeys show up here at the house in late summer, but they find other places to hang out once the leaves come off the trees. There's been so much rain here lately (10 inches in June alone) that the creek could not be crossed on foot by man or turkey. I'll be happy when I get the chance to observe turkey behavior from a comfortable chair inside with air conditioning.

Seriously though we had late strutters all the way through June.

Ted, I know a guy whose "deer stand" has that in it. Plus he has a little heater in there.

Im glad somebody is seeing turkeys. So far the only gobblers I have seen are the ones that still torment me in my dreams.

The Ranger bass boat my buddy has is almost that comfortable. :D My foldover Ice shanty has a heater. I could put a seat in it on the bench but I don't see the benefit as being worth dragging another 15 pounds out on the ice.

That's what I use in my deer stand. I took the spare pedestal seat out of my boat and put it in my stand, nice soft hydraulic swivel seat makes comfortable sitting, also have a 20gal propane tank hooked up to my Mr Heater that keeps the stand warm. I can also lay it on it's back and cook off it, made a few apple pies and cornbread while out in the stand. Open the windows and let that baked apple sent drift through the woods. I've shot more than a few deer with a fresh baked pie cooling in the window :lol: .

Thats just wrong Scott. :lol: :lol: :lol:

That poor deer thought he was going to get something warm to eat but instead you gave him something cold. :lol: :lol:

Hey Guys,
This is one of the stands on one of the hunting properties up in Georgia. It's right behind the Muzzy Archery plant.
