Default Wonderful Day in the Neighborhood

AHHH, today was truly a wonderful day in the neighborhood. The wife is gone this weekend to visit the in-laws, and I decided to go trout fishing. Got 7 of them and had to quit. It started raining just before I left the water.

I drove up the road a few miles, and saw a flock of turkeys in a river bottom. When
I slowed down they took off runnung. But, they stopped near the road. I pulled off on the road side and looked at them through binoculars. There were 22 total and two big toms in the bunch. Both had 10"+ beards. I could clearly see the biggest ones spurs and they looked impressive!

Drove around the next curve and saw 4 more turkeys in a field. They looked to be small toms and jakes. I continued driving and got to the interstate; halfway back home I looked over in a field and saw 3 more gobblers! Wow!!! I could not believe the number of turkeys I saw on this trip. I also saw five deer eating grass on the side of the interstate. All of these sights coupled with my limit of trout made my weekend!

Criggster....sounds like you're going to have to talk your wife into visiting the inlaws more often!

Where abouts in VA are you? (roughly) I'm trying to think of where you can keep 7 trout without stuffing one in your hip boot!

I'm near Roanoke, but only kept 6 of the fish and released a smaller one.
