I gave one of my hunting buddies an early Christmas present Saturday with some good news. We were driving past his lease and saw 3 big gobblers in a creek bottom. At least 2 of them had paint brush beards, hanging very low. We drove another 1/4 mile and saw a flock of hens and young turkeys, totaling 12-15. It was awesome to see them in those spots, it's been a while. We saw another turkey later during our trip, but couldn't tell if there were more, the sun was blinding me at the time.
