Wild Turkey Poults

Since I have been down here I collect turkey information for missouri conservation during the summer months. It gives them an idea on how good the spring hatch was.
The last several springs have been bad for turkeys-too much rain etc. All this month we have been seeing a large group of turkeys with hens within a two mile area. Larry stepped outdoors for a bit and saw the group on the backside of one our new ponds-was very cool to watch-a hen in the front, one in the middle and one at the end of the group. Never realized they raised their young in groups like this. It was also cute to watch a couple of the little ones broke the line and ventured closer to the pond-but before they got there-they must have been told to get back up where they belong-cause they went running back real quick lol
