We paid 100 dollars for one when we first married, call him Bud, and he lived in a chicken coop. We were going to get a few females, but we werent in a hurry cause he wasn't quite mature. Boy, he could get the chickens riled up when he started making noise. Since he wasn't grown, it was like a honking noise.

I came home one day and his pen door was open and he was gone and we haven't seen him again.

Maybe he got all the way up north? Looks an awful like him. See if he answers to Bud.

This guy is wild, I tried to get closer for a better pic. He just runs like crazy. I saw him again today, off in the pasture. When he saw me he took off. Next time I'm going to yell "BUD". If he comes running I expect the owner to come get him. ;-)

Its the cost of production and the value of your marketable product, or if you having fun. That's it, everything else is BS.

They sure make good locator calls to make wild turkeys gobble. I was turkey hunting one morning and i thought i was really making that gobbler gobble. But he never would come in. So the next morning i moved up on the ridge closer to where the gobbler was roosted and i could hear a peacock on a nearby farm. And every time that thing would yell the turkey would gobble. That went on for hours.

Naw, you just keep him. He never answered to his name anyway. The couple of time I did have to move him around there were feathers and poop everywhere. On me, mostly. I am the poultry wrangler around here.

They are great for killing snakes. And sounding alarm when something enters the area. My distant neighbor has some and we hear them on rare occassions.

Last summer we had one show up. The cows were terrified of it, so we were glad it decided to move on.
