Big Boy Tom Lurks the Maine Woods



This photo depicts "Big Boy", a Tom turkey who has been lurking about my favorite hunting spot for the past several years. He is very smart and will immediately run the other way with the slightest off tune calling or upon seeing a decoy. Though many classify him as an mythic animal of legend, I know that he is only a turkey with the brain the size of a pea. Prepare to match wits with me "Big Boy", we will soon see who has the last laugh!

*Please ignore date, I apparently do not have the cranial capacity to correctly set a game camera! Hmmm, perhaps this battle of wits may no go as I had originally planned . . . stay tuned!

  2. I've heard that turkeys are so stupid that if they are standing in a hole that's filling up with water, they will not get up to higher ground to save themselves from drowning. So, if "Big Boy" does get the last laugh, I wouldn't post about it...just sayin.

    1. KG, HA! I have heard that as well but am unsure if it is true. For having a brain the size of a pea, in my experience, they learn very quickly . . . especially once turkey season starts! You do have a great point . . . BUT in all honestly, I am well seasoned in humility, for I have matched wits with an animal of the wilds many times and ended up empty handed! Thanks for stopping by and commenting, always nice to see new faces!

    1. CYW, I think your blog is great. The combination of drawn pictures and text is freaking hilarious. How do I bribe you into doing a guest post on perhaps a turkey hunting parody? The classic coyote and road runner, me against Big Boy? Could get ugly . . .

  6. Update: After sitting from 4:30AM till Noon time yesterday in the turkey blind, awaiting a possible confrontation with "Big Boy", I managed to come up birdless. Did manage to see several hens and a number of other critters including a deer that walked to within 20 feet of the blind. All in all a nice and relaxing sit BUT unfortunately this round must go to "Big Boy".

    Next Saturday, I return to pursue this epic turkey of legend!
