Walking out this morning I had a hen fly off within a couple feet of me , after getting my heart rate back down , I remembered seeing a single hen in the same general area several times. I told my girlfriend a couple weeks ago that I bet the hen was gonna nest there somewhere close , and sure enough , she was sitting on 12 eggs when we scared each other this morning.

I think it would be kinda neat to put my truthcam facing the nest and put it on video mode , but I really hate to disturb her any more than I already have.

Thats cool, haven't found one yet this year, but I usually find one or two each year. I don't know if the camera would disturb her or not, but I've had the same thought. Would be cool to get some pics or videos of the whole thing.

That's cool. Got a hen that has nested for several years in a neighbors thicket just away from my house 50 yards or so. Amazing thing is we've found the nest several times over the years but have never seen the poults. Just the other day there was a hen behind the house and I wondered if it was her or just coincidence.

Went to a turkey seminar once and TWRA biologist said spook a hen off the nest and 60% of the time she will not return. Spook her off a second time and she will not return.

Cool deal. My father-in-law walked within 10 feet of a hen sitting on a dozen eggs a couple weeks ago.
