if the field is fescue like many are, they grow so thick that it is hard for even opossums, coons and skunks to navigate through them to get to their eggs...That's my guess anyway.
Is it strange to anyone else that turkeys are on the nest in the first part of June? Gotta be a re-nest huh?
I agree that is a good guess it is hard for me to walk those fescue laden fields too.
Last year I found nests as late as July with some poults only softball size on the opening of fall season.
This last week I have been encountering flocks with birds of the year already in the 5-10lb range. Which I consider delightful table fare. [:)]
Still hoping there are more poults yet to be discovered but maybe too small to see at this time due to the heavy cover. Things started growing late but man have they ever made up for lost time.
