3 weeks ago I was up by my hunting land and I was watching 19 turkeys (1 tom and 18 hens).  The tom was a strutting like crazy at about 8 am-8:30 am.  The next day I saw a lone tom in the same area but he was a gobbling his head off, it got me pretty excited about the upcoming season.  I will be up their this weekend and I will take some pictures and report back on Monday.

I was up by Detroit Lakes this past weekend and I saw a lot of turkeys.  Sunday morning around 8:00 am was especially interesting as I was watching 3 toms (who we have dubbed the 3 amigos) along with a couple of hens.  Then I saw the tom and the hen start breeding and then 10 minutes later another tom and hen breeding.  During this whole process 2 more jakes come down the hill and the 3 amigos and the 2 jakes are having a strutting contest.  A little while later 2 more toms come to the same area and I snuck out the side door of the in-laws place and I grabbed a pair of binoculars and watched them sneak off across a meadow and then disappear into some more trees.  After all the gobbling, strutting and breeding i am way excited to go hunting May 10-14.
 
Below is a picture of the 3 amigos from about 3 weeks ago right by the front of the garage.
