Yesterday in Morgan County walking along a 4 wheeler path I found this one dead. No I Did not kill it or anything. Don't know what was wrong with. No markings of any kind.

I don't know how old? Maybe a week or two? Someone may like to add to this.

So let me get this straight. If this turkey was atleast a week old, and it takes 4 weeks (28 days) for a egg to hatch, and this hen will lay one egg a day up to 14 days. That means she was done breeding and laying on eggs after the 1st week of season.


In different spot we caught up with a hen that would not leave the area, never thought about her having little ones with her. No wonder I have had the worst season ever. The hens already were on the nest and done at week 1-2 and the gobblers quit being agressive around week 3-4.

Now to all the people that say the weather don't have anything to do with breeding patterns. This is simply amazing.
