I've been seeing tons of turkeys all during bow season but most were hens which are legal, but I wanted a tom but never got one in range.
Fast forward to yesterday sitting with a rifle and later in the morning I hear the turkeys.
I'm sitting watching down the sendero and a flock of green jays start flying overhead and landing in the trees around me raising a ruckus.
I then notice several turkeys start to come out into the clearing 75 yards away and notice a large tom just back in the brush.
Those danged green jays flew down toward those turkeys and the turkeys froze.
Just then, the turkeys turned around and went back into the brush where they came from, and I had corn on the road.
Now tell me those jays didn't alert those turkeys!....Sure seemed like it to me!
