Turkey Hunting in the Michigan's Thumb

I got up at 4 am this morning.  I did the same thing on monday.  I had to meet my friend, Dave Deland, for a trip into the deep, dark woods of Michigan's Thumb to wait for that strange and elusive bird, the turkey.  I have seen many, many of these birds and more than a few of their relatives, the domestic turkey.  I must say that the domestic variety while great on the table is no match for its wild cousin, a bird that can fly almost straight up, can sneak through a bunch of cats and be hit straight in the body by a 12 gauge and walk out of it.  Today, I got my first turkey.  As you can see, that is not trivial.  Now, I gotta watch from the sidelines.
