Today I got cut off by a group of 20 turkeys walking single file across the road. There were 2 jakes (no beard, with spurs) a bunch of hens, what I thought was a few more jakes, and one big gobbler, beard and all. We have definitely had a crazy winter, but don't the birds usually split up for winter, and only start to come back together around spring turkey season?
This is my first season and I am trying to learn all I can. I have been doing alot of scouting and watching, but I haven't yet seen a group this diverse.
Any thoughts? Thanks,
