Hunting....you are doing it wrong.




Actually he is a pet, and the gun is a pellet gun. He always comes up to watch me shoot.

I had to tell all me neighbors, if you see a turkey that acts really stupid and walks right up to you and wants to eat out of your hand please don't shoot him. This one is KC, I have two others Profile and Dot. They are also not afraid of the dogs, real gun fire....things normal turkeys should be afraid of....they have started roosting on top of my house.

Some joys of country life.

My wife was too slow on the camera...he was up on the table about 30 sec before.

I have 3, there is an old thread floating around here somewhere on them. One wild two domestic. They will all eat right out of your hand.

Every year we seem to get a wild turkey or two wandering around our suburban neighborhood, I think it's kinda cool, and they certainly don't do any harm.

Of course, a couple of years ago some little shithead shot one with his crappy little bow, didn't even kill the bird outright so the poor thing is wandering around with an arrow sticking out of it until some sort of animal control types showed up and took care of putting the thing down. Little asshat got himself in all sorts of trouble.

Twenty years ago wild turkeys around here were rare to the point of being almost nonexistent. Now they are everywhere and almost as tame as groundhogs. About ten years ago I walked up on a tom with a whole flock of hens in Anacostia Park in DC. That one surprised the hell out of me. Up until then I had only seen an occasional bird in deep woods. Since then I have started seeing them everywhere and a lot more often. Pretty cool to make that kind of comeback.

Until they learn that they have strength in numbers and they pull down a runner.

That big old tom had me convinced to let his hens cross the trail. He looked pretty badass all fluffed up and raising hell with me. That ain't supposed to happen within sight of a DC metro station.

Plenty in Boston proper these days.

The MSP shot a black bear in Newton MA (next town from Boston) because he'd treed himself over the Mass Turnpike. Most of the harbor islands have deer and my neighborhood, right next to Boston Harbor, has Coyotes.

Bobcat walked through our place in NH last week. My wife won't let our Labrador Retriever out of her sight....

We have Gobbles the turkey that like to wake us up at 5:30 in the summer. Big sucker.
The deer are out and about more now. They're not afraid of people at all, it seems. Or my car.
