Dealing with a roosted hen
« on: April 26, 2018, 05:59:49 PM »
Last Sunday evening I got a bit too close to the roost and didn't end up with a shot before they flew up, so I had to sneak out at dark. I'd seen one bird go up right where I needed to walk out some hundred yards away by its self and me with little other options. I successfully snuck away from the roost without spooking them, but then the one bird in my way on the way out... I still had to deal with. But she left me with a memory. It was a hen...I seen that plainly. She roosted maybe 20ft high max in a smallish tree. I got beside and under her, and then past her without spooking her off...but the ground was real quiet from rain and lack of leaves . I kept creeping inch by inch expecting to flush her But never did!...But in the process I took pics and video of her....even with the flash and her eyes lit up!

Cool pic!  I have pictures somewhere of turkeys mixed in with some deer in a field and all of their eyes are lit up like that.
