    <P style="MARGIN: 0px">Got a call from a buddy in SE Indiana today and he told me that he found a turkey nest with 11 eggs in it.&nbsp; Seems as if the birds are still henned up around here as well in Indiana.&nbsp; Might not be long before the hens start leaving the boys.&nbsp; Birds in my neck of the woods are still gobbling hard off the roost, but it is silent when they hit the ground, unless you get on them close right after fly down.</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P>

    <P>Ours were the same way this morning. Once they hit the ground they shut up for about an hour. Then at 10:00 they opened up again. Later might be better in the week or morning. Work is going to get in the way with me again later in the morning.</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P>
