RE: What's the closest you've had a mature strutter?

I thought of another close tom. One spring when I was scouting, I called two hens and a strutting tom to less than five yards away. I was on one side of a fence and he was on the other. We were up on...

They're Merriam's, so some of them do show quite a bit of white, and I'd guess there's more than one tom, just one tom struttin' when I snapped the pic.

This time of year all I can hope to do is "intercept" them as they do their walking thing, unless I catch them right at flydown. A week or two will help, I hope.
