Fighting Toms

In early April I was driving along a dirt road in Southeastern Michigan when I spotted a couple male turkeys fighting it out on the side of the road. I stopped the truck and turned off the engine to get this short video. The two turkeys were so focused on fighting with one another that they didn't seem to care that I was parked a few feet from them. There were a few other turkeys about 30 meters away from this pair. Eventually, one of the male turkeys broke off the fight and fled, with the other male chasing him.

Awesome! Turkey hunting opens next weekend here in PA. I've been practicing with my call all weekend, trying to sound like a frisky hen.
