After reading about all the poult sightings and thinking how bow season is only a month and 13 days away, how old are the poults before you can tell which are jennies and which are jakes? There have been a couple of times where I thought I was pulling the trigger on an adult hen only to find out when I walked up to it and looked real close at the feathers that I had actually shot a young jake.
Usually I don't turkey hunt in the fall untill October and even then I sometimes have a hard time telling which is which. I know the tips of the feathers are different colors but with my colorblindness its hard to tell unless they are within spitting distance. Im just wondering if there is anything else I could look for that I might not have noticed before?
Also, I am jealous of some you that are able to get in the woods and play while Im working 6 days a freaking week.
