    I've never seen one was a first for me. Was cool seeing it especially how I live in a populated neighborhood.

    Well I've only ever seen one, & I'll never forget where it was or how different it looked next to the other turkeys with it.

    I'm glad I saw it I thought it was a piebald at first. Looked it up seemed like a smoke phase. Dang phone had dust on the lense that's why the pics suck. Wish I coulda got better pics I can still hear them in the wood strip. I'll let them be even though I want a better pic.

    Probably come back through at some point. Do you have a trail cam you can set up along that tree line? Might get a good pic that way

    Smokie's are very cool! I've seen a few and know a guy that shot a Smokie Tom. It maked one heck of a mount.

    Several of those around the Brooklyn MI area....used to have the hens in the yard......a buddy sent me this last spring - not sure if he is still alive but would be a nice mount if he didn't live on private property :D Assuming it would be legal to shoot this if fair chase.....never really looked into it IMG_0965.PNG

    I'm shure I will unless they get hit by a car. I assume they are living it the strip of woods. Unless they went north to the woods on cherry hill or they probably went back to Michigan ave.
