Three Bearded HensContributors to this thread:
Seems like every time I go in the woods I see a first. This time I was scouting some public for turkey season. Saw a total of 17, and stayed to roost the last flock of nine. I moved in fairly close behind cover and glassed one mature Tom, two jakes, three regular hens, and no less than three bearded hens! I could not believe it. I’ve been hunting 30+ years and never seen this.
I have yet to lay eyes on a single 140” buck on Indiana public land, but the turkey hunting sure is great. I got three slammer spots to set up on now. Should be able to score at any one of them.
Good luck to all on this snowy opening morning!
