Well I think the hen might have evened up the score a little. I was out picking blackberries and looked ahead just in time to see a turkey chick about six feet in front of me. I was just forming the thought that if there were chicks the hen must be close  when she took off flying from about ten feet away right in the blackberry brambles. Most of the blackberies I had picked went up in the air and landed on the ground. When my heart stopped pounding I just laughed. Nice to know that even if that clutch of eggs never hatched there were others that did.

I can imagine it. Sometimes that happens (heart in throat) when a grouse flushes. :D
Move'n on.

Oh yes!   Walking up Quail can take years off of your life.  I can't even imagine flushing a Turkey hen. :D

Did you live? :-\

I've had that happen a few times with turkeys. Almost got thrown off a horse once in the West Virginia backcountry when one took flight in front of the horse causing the Tennessee Walker to reach for the sky.

I lived Tom and actually enjoyed seeing the chicks. This one ranks right up there with the time during deer season when I was sneeking through the woods. As I was trying to quietly move through the woods I reached a large downed log  I eased up on it and stood there watching and listeningfor about  three four minets. I stepped down off the log and the grouse that had been there the whole time took off. I thought the end of the world had happened. I think that is the biggest surprize I have ever had in the woods.
