I probably have said this before ,,,I really like to see a strutting gobbler . Trying to read his mind by his body language as he comes in to the call is a thrill .
But , I really ADMIRE the quiet fall gobbler that is coming in with his feathers all plastered down like they were oiled . His head up high , and that brilliant red head and wattles . Slow stepping in his cautionary manner , inspecting every inch of the woods for the unseen gobbler he knows he heard just a moment ago , ,,,or was it an hour . He seems to me to be a little harder to read . Though there are those wing movement and the sudden '' TACK ABOUT'' manuever that surely means he's either seen too much ,,,or not enough . PUTT ,,,,PUTT ,,,,PUTT,,,,,,bang!
