I went riding/looking for wildlife this morning in SW TN and ran across this old bird strutting with five hens. He was locked up tight when I first saw him, but that didn't last long as I cut the truck off, hopped out and went to videoing. The hens said the heck with this and started easing toward the woods, with him in pursuit, all along doing his best to stay in strut. He had a rope for a beard as you can see in the second video. He was about 300 yards from my truck. My buddy said "that is the first old bird I have ever seen strutting with multiple hens in July, as if it were April."
