Bird At The Wire

Today is the last day of Maine's six-day fall firearms turkey season. Persistence pays. Read on . . .

My buddy Marc--a longtime wild turkey hunter with Grand Slams and calling contests to his credit--tagged this fine Maine hen this morning (pink legs, brown-tipped breast feathers, 9.2#s on my NWTF digital scale). There were around 20 in the flock, minus this one.
