Went to check my trail camera today since it has been 4 days since I last checked it. It was about 5:30 so I didn't think any birds would be in the field since fly up time is around 6:10 or so. On the way up I started seeing a little sign so I was picking up my pace from the excitement. I have had this camera up for about 3 weeks with only one picture as of yet (bobcat). Well I got through the 1st field and on the little road that connected it to the 2nd field. Got up in the field a bit and I hear something walking in the woods. I freeze and look up. There stands the 8 longbeards I seen 2 weeks ago only 50yds away! I thought they had seen me because a few had their heads up. I just stood there not moving a bit. Finally after about 20 or so seconds they put their heads down and went back to pecking around and walking up towards the ridge. WOW, undetected!!! I just stood there and let them get way up the side of the mountain before moving on. I wasn't sure if they were going to roost right there or go higher up. After about 10min of standing there I crept up to my camera. I opened it up and it had 17pics on it. Well I pulled that card and put a new one in and then looked around in front of the camera. Found some turkey droppings so I knew I had turkey pics!!!! Well I turned it back on and went to listen to see where they were going to roost. I thought it was going to be down lower than usual on the ridge top of a finger so I got where I could listen. Well I was wrong! They walked up the ridge line of the finger to the top and roosted. Tried to get a gobble out of them but noting but some cackling as they flew up. I was freezing so I got out of there and rushed to check the pics. Well only 2 were turkeys with the rest being crows and tweety birds but here is the 8 longbeards! Here is what I got in my honey hole, COME ON APRIL:

I like the country in the background. Looks like the area where my place is in TN.

In the second picture right about the 3rd birds head that gap you see in the trees doesn't have a house down there. That is a dirt road running through there. There are some houses up on that side but you can't see any of them. They are around that little finger coming off the left side. I wish I did live there though!! But I do only live about 3-5min. away from here

Yep! Very pretty country but it sure makes chasing them birds a little harder!! No doubt that you have to definitely be in shape for it!
