The ambitious turks were up and about. Bottom left - not easy to see - are three toms with tail feathers fanned out. They were fighting over the hens at bottom right which are running away after Flop Ears howled at them.

In the trees are the lazy turks who couldn't see the merit of getting up so early. This was like 20 minutes before sunrise, and they normally leave the roost by then. So little mutt made the turks fly away and howled at a few deer nearby.

Down the road a few miles, grouse were sitting on a power line but no pics. I slowed down with camera in hand but they took off. I think they get their butts dusted off once in a while. But I was glad to see as many as I did - grouse populations have been declining.

Then it was back to town for Sunday morning deli breakfast. Biscuits & gravy for me - 3 pieces of bacon for the dog - who is snoring happily on the couch. It was a good morning for her. Me, too! :bigrin: SW

Nice pics. I used to have them in Michigan but a fox took up residence and they moved out or became dinner.

had some in the yard today - is it possible to have a young one among them this time of year or was one just really small and scruffy looking ? neighbors cat thought to have a go at him - no joy there for the cat and my wife has sworn to kill that cat first opportunity arises , she really hates that cat , it lurks about under our bushes liking for baby bunnys and songbirds - just kills and leaves them about , i cannot say i blame her here but the cat belongs to my neighbors daughter and i wish they would keep it home ,

Grouse here seem to be on a 7-9 year cycle.

Still haven't seen the numbers I was seeing in the late 80's/ early 90's.

It was nice seeing the Sharptails making a come-back last fall. This coming season may be the top of the cycle, and I plan to do as much hunting as I can.

Regards,

Doc Sharptail

for what its worth , i choose to work seven days a week these days between my real job and my gun club job , i would love to sleep in on sunday

but that aint happinin , i need to have breakfast with my friends and there is always the major shoots or some other thing going on , i think it is what we retired folks do , im nearing 70 and been retired but chose to go back among the living , im not sayin anything bad to those that have adapted - i couldn't , im having the lost nights sleep and other BS of working by choice now , its not all bad {OK some of it is} but a year or so more wont kill me - or maybe it will , im good with that , if thats what happens , im still living every day among the living , when i tried the early retirement [forced upon me] i missed it too much ,

i look forward to getting to the point when i can retire with no regrets , i know its getting close , im thinking a year or two , by that time technology will have surpassed my entire education and experience , hard to accept but it is what it is , i am no computer genius , im lucky they let me learn on the job where i am today ,
