    NO DOUBT - all these poults a result of the Predator Control Permit;)

    Another hen this morning with 8-10 big poults! Wife saw a hen with at least 3 poults last week. Beginning to think at least in SE ark it was a really good hatch.

    Talked with a hunting buddy from SE arkansas this morning. Says he has seen more than he has seen in years.

    Saw a hen run across the road on my way home from work coming from Heber and she had 8 or 9 poults standing in the ditch with her as I slowed down to get a look. All appeared to be about the size of full grown chickens. Pretty encouraging to see.

    Finally got some trail cam pics of hens with poults! 2 hens together with 10 poults I could count. Another pic of one hen with 4 poults. So at least we had some hatch success...

    And yep, I will keep after the predators...
