It's getting to be that time of year.  Gobble Gobble.

I spend a lot of time searching this things out and finding places to hunt.  But just to spite me, there's a large flock in my darn neighborhood that are safe from my calls and ultimately, my Benelli.

Driving home I came around the corner to a very special sight, 2 very mature tom's beating the hell out of each other.  

They were so absorbed in the fight that I stopped my car, grabbed my Iphone and snapped away for 5 minutes.  Only after one asserted dominance did they wander off into the bushes

Here's where the pecking order was confirmed

They spent a long time biting each other and chest bumping.  These birds werent jakes, but full blown boss toms.  Sex and turkey testosterone are crazy things.

Good luck this turkey season. 


  1. Very cool to get front row seats to watch the toms battle it out.

  2. swing by my place tomorrow and you can see me and my neighbor go through the same thing.
