Deer Creek Wild Turkey Update

It was a great Saturday out here in Deer Creek. I would call it almost balmy surreal. I was in and out feeding not only the eight turkeys, but other birds in our backyard. We put out around a hundred pounds of corn and sunflower seed this past week.

The bird viewing was simply amazing.

I had a great Saturday. I watched three Big 12 games and then the Heat beating the Lakers in the nightcap. I hope Tyler Herro’s contused hip is okay because once the Heat get full healthy I expect them to challenge Philly and the Brooklyn Thunder in the East.

In the Big 12 games Kansas beat Chris Beard’s Red Raiders. Texas choked a 16 point lead to West Virginia at home and lost—and of course Lon Kruger’s trending Sooners beat Iowa State on the road.

Just a beautiful day. I smoked a cigar on the back patio for the first time in 2021 and even got some ski slope sun with the reflection off the snow. Even had a pork chop for breakfast which is a rarity. Felt like I was at the base of Squaw Valley or Taos in my younger days.

I was worried about our eight wild turkeys on Thursday after the second snow storm. They looked whipped for the first time ever. Little Mike Gundy with his 1-15 orange sweater looked like he was done, but it’s amazing how quickly they’ve snapped back in the past forty-eight hours.

Little Jerry Seinfeld, Little Kendrick Perkins, and Little Baker Mayfield look better than ever. Life is good.

They’re strutting, they’re bobbing and weaving and hopping like’s it’s mid March.

It was the best day since we got back from Denver visiting the kids.

Have a nice Sunday.

I don’t think at this point either Lindsey Graham or Donald Trump would mind if I switch their music from the the make up sex thread and let the turkeys use it.
