They ain't exactly trail cam photos boys, but they'll have to do. Took these out my back window this past Sunday morning. Actually heard the strutter spit as I was on this forum and looked out the door of my office.
First pic is the object of his affection under my bird feeder. I took the long shot for perspective so you could see my deck and clothes poles. He got within about 20 feet of the house, hence the close ups. He'll be fair game after May 2 nd, he'll also probably be in the next county by then.

Nice pics, Jeff and I tip my hat to you sir. If a gobbler came into my back yard like that I believe temptation would have gotten the better of me. Then again my season starts Saturday and my trigger finger is aching to commence firing on some birds.
