Tell the truth, you never hunted a day in your life.

Now I can understand why you have over 11,000 posts...with the majority of them much to do about nothing.

Now that is funny, did it ever occur to your liberal brain that I have been here many years longer than you have, next of we want to talk about much to do about nothing you best take a look at your own posts. I still do not believe you ever hunted a day in your life.

What? Ive never seen this or heard of this

I really don't think this is the case here, that they like to hear their poop hit the water and Ive never seen a turkey roost or heard of a turkey roosting over water. Stop with the nonsense.

Learned long ago Arrow you need to get past the idiots sometimes to find a safe place to hunt. And sometimes it is better to just pack up and find another spot. Safer for all.

True enough except they roost over water for safety from predators.

From NWTF, https://www.nwtf.org/hunt/article/locating-roosts,

Consider the factors below to determine likely roost sites:

Proximity to water
The old hunter’s adage suggesting, “Turkeys love to roost where they can hear their droppings hit water,” rings true here.


On our lease, one of the best spots is creek bottom land with swamp and and beaver ponds.
