down at the public land,,,just getting light. they were hammering up on the break ridge . on my way out saw one small flock of all hens , and another flock of 23 , mostly jakes and longbeards , with a few hens . two were strutting , but not for the hens . looked like they were strutting for each other . face to face for a long time . the other longbeards in the bunch were picking on the jakes . they all sure looked odd with big balls of mud and wet corn fodder stuck to their feet .
