Sounds like a country song, doesn't it? Well just take me to the back forty and I'm happy. This morning the weather was cool and cloudy. After John did his chores with the cows and I had fed the turtles which came up eager to eat and crawled around my feet until I had to be careful not to step on them . I ask John to drive to the back forty to see what we could see. He said you may see a bird in the sky. He was wrong, we saw nine wild turkeys. Three toms and seven hens. They sure blend in with last year's hay grazer and ugly dry grass. They were pretty tame except one got frightened and flew over the fence. We circled the fence line and noticed the neighbor had done a lot of fence repair so we didn't have to watch so close for broken wire. He had even trimmed some of the old mesquite with a chain saw and chopped some of the cactus out of the fence line to do the repairs. This part of the property is where the wild hogs like to come in the most and they are getting a larger and larger area where they are digging deep. They like this area even when the hunters are not putting out corn to trap them because there is a grass that grows there called nut grass and they love to dig for the nut that grows on the roots. The cardinals were out in full force and there are baby calves everywhere kicking and running in the cool air.
