With all the chit going on in the world it was a real blessing to be able to spend a week with my wife @ our lease in Cisco Tx area. Lease straddle's
Eastland & Stephens county.

We have been hearing gobblers ever since we arrived on April 4 .Due to rain mud we were shut in for a few days and didn't hunt as hard as we wanted.

But on April 10th it turned into a beautiful day ( best all around since we arrived )

On the 10th as I arrived at our hunting area just as dawn is breaking : I am hearing gobbling already - got set up and started calling. Turkeys answered but were headed North out of our area bang

kept calling for awhile but nothing was talking to me - maybe it was the accent texas cowboy

Then out of the blue here comes 3 big hens nice and plump but non shooters , watched them for 2-3 min to see what would happen , quit all calling at this time - nothing was answering me anyway- and out popped 4 more hens for a total of 7 big mature hens.

I was getting excited by this time : banana

And after another 2-3 min of watching all the hens - here comes 2 magnificent Toms - Side by Side in full display strut - They were all puffed out in there pimp daddy colors and were quite the site against a Blue sky and lush green field . colors were very vivid in the morning sun! up

Hammered what I thought as the Bigger Tom - Hens & other Tom took off at warp speed.

Then I couldn't believe it when Tom #2 decides to come check on his buddy that was sleeping at this time @ he got to take a nap also .
Guess he didn't get the word on social distancing. violin

Very awesome morning - My work is done here !!!!!!!!!!!

1) why was two toms still hanging together & appeared to have split a harem of hens between them? [Linked Image]

The first one you shot was dominant over the second one. The second one came over to "check" on things before he went chasing the ladies. Happens quite often.

You got enjoy a very neat experience.
